Among the many, many off-shoots of the Final Fantasy franchise that Square Enix churned out over the years, War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius was one of the more intriguing ones. Obviously a spin-off of Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, War of the Visions took inspiration from the Final Fantasy Tactics games, turning into a strategy RPG – not a direction that the franchise had taken much outside of the FFT titles. With War of the Visions being a free mobile game, gacha systems and in-app microtransactions were inevitable features gamers had to contend with. Some balancing issues aside, though, War of the Visions offered a surprisingly fully-fledged and in-depth strategy game experience bolstered by excellent production values. Maybe due to its genre, the game was significantly more successful in Japan than abroad but still managed over eleven million downloads in total soon after its release.
