Some key features for FINAL FANTASY AGITO include:

Character Customisation: Create a unique character in the world of FINAL FANTASY AGITO. Players have access to a variety of character customisation options, including gender, facial features, hairstyles and more.

Player Choice: Interact with other cadets at Akademeia, including major characters from FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0. The decisions you make here will affect the course of history in the game, which in turn will affect the worldwide player community.
