Unfortunately however, this listing is region locked and you won't be able to download the new game this way unless you live in Japan. Not to worry, though – here are some instructions for those of you outside of Japan!

  • On your Android device, go to http://www.apkpure.c...ee-apk-download, and in the text field input com.square_enix.android_googleplay.khuxjp
  • The APK file should now download! When the download is complete, open the file and click "Install". After this installs, you are done!

Enjoy! The iOS app store listing should also be up soon, at which time we'll post a guide for our iPhone and iPad users. The online service for the game will not begin until 12PM JST (8PM in USA PST and 11PM in USA EST).
