Lara Croft Go

Square Enix today announced three new mobile titles at its E3 2015 press conference: Kingdom Hearts Unchained Key, Lara Croft Go and Final Fantasy VII. Here's what we know about all three games:

Kingdom Hearts Unchained Key, which was originally announced for Japan, will also be released in the US for both iOS and Android. This is the first Kingdom Hearts game specifically designed for mobile devices, but it's story will link to Kingdom Hearts 3. The game will include numerous Disney characters and feature a 2D art style. Kingdom Hearts Unchained Key will launch in Japan in 2015. No North American release date has been announced.

Square Enix to Release Final Fantasy VI to iOS and Android

Square Enix announced today that it will release Final Fantasy VI for iOS and Android devices this winter. Square director and producer Takashi Tokita told Kotaku that the game will be "like a remake of the original VI."

The mobile version of the game will feature sharpened 2D graphics and an updated battle system.

"The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will be the same," explained Tokita "For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don't have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is."

Of course, the jailbreak community responded quickly by releasing a fix called xCon to the ModMyI repo in Cydia, but not before Square Enix felt the backlash. On Friday, the Japanese video game developer issued this statement through Eurogamer:
