Fans of the hugely popular manga/anime Fullmetal Alchemist have something big to get excited about. Because with the release of a brand new Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile trailer, Square Enix has brought hype for their upcoming mobile adaptation to a fever pitch. 


Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile seems to signify good things for the app gaming industry. Disappointing past experience has led many to treat mobile adaptations of huge IPs with a degree of skepticism. But if the latest Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile trailer is anything to go by, we can lay those fears to rest in this instance.

Fullmetal Alchemist follows the story of brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric in their pursuit of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone. It centers around ancient alchemy during a time when the practice was indistinguishable from magic; it features many dark yet compelling themes throughout.


At this point, the existing Fullmetal Alchemist game has received multiple awards – and with its publisher, Square Enix, also taking control of its mobile adaptation, we suspect they’ll do it justice. 


Perhaps one of the most exciting features for fans of the series is the presence of what looks to be a fully voice-acted and in-depth storyline featuring much of the cast of Fullmetal Alchemist characters. The Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile trailer features multiple cutscenes, setting the scene for what might be a new and compelling story for the franchise. 


Gameplay-wise, there seems to be a lot of varying elements. From the trailer we can see what looks like puzzles, RPG and tag-team fighting game mechanics. Though we weren’t necessarily expecting Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile to be a fighter, it makes a little more sense when compared to the console game of its anime compatriot, Naruto. 


Either way, it looks incredible, and appears to be a must-play for anyone who is a fan of the series and manga in general, whether they’re into fighting games or not. Unfortunately for anyone living outside of Japan, however, it looks like we have a little longer to wait. 


Square Enix has released a brand new Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile trailer, and things are looking decidedly great.
