Square Enix, Ltd. announced today that Imaginary RangeTM, a new type of entertainment app that lets users play games as they read through a digital comic, is now available to download for free from the Apple® Store for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad® platforms.
Imaginary Range is a full-color comic that includes a selection of mini-games inserted within the flow of the plot, immersing gamers alongside the cast as they proceed through the story. The project was overseen by Motomu Toriyama, director of FINAL FANTASY®XIII, with Souki Tsukishima, author of the novel Emeth: Ningyo-tsukai no Shima, who wrote the story. The art was handled by Toshiyuki Itahana, character designer for the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES® series.
