Square Enix introducing game streaming service for smartphones in Japan

Square Enix is throwing its hat in the streaming game market with the announcement of a new gaming service called Dive In, which will make its debut in Japan next month. With the service, gamers can rent various classic games from the Squeenix library for $1.50-$2.50 for a three-day span, depending on the title.

Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy VII: International Edition and Season of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders will be available when the service launches on October 9th for iOS and Android, while other games, like Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, The Last Remnant and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be added over the next few months. People can rent the titles longer if they prefer, for up to $16 for a whole year’s rental via streaming.

There’s no word yet if the service will make its way to the U.S., but considering that Square Enix already has a bunch of games available on the iOS front, it could be just a matter of time.
