Developed by Square Enix External Studios, Just Cause: Mobile is an upcoming side-instalment in the action-adventure gaming franchise, due to launch on iOS and Android platforms later this year. Despite being based on Avalanche Studios’ main franchise, they have minimal (if any) confirmed involvement in this project.
In recent days, Square Enix has shared a full cinematic trailer for the game, which doesn’t showcase any actual gameplay, but gives you a taste for the mood the development team evidently wants you to experience while playing.
