A Nintendo 3DS version, Pictlogica Final Fantasy ≒ (ピクトロジカ ファイナルファンタジー ≒, Pikutorojika Fainaru Fantajī Niarī Ikōru?, lit. Pictlogica Final Fantasy Nearly Equal), was announced and released in Japan on July 12, 2017, featuring new puzzles and a new game mode. In September 2018, Square Enix announced that the game's online services would be shut down on November 30 and that the game will later be replaced by a version that is playable offline. It has been delisted from all app stores as of Spring 2019.
The gameplay mixes RPG elements with dot logic puzzles. The player controls a party of four, plus one optional friend, as they battle their way through waves of enemies while solving puzzles. There is a 5x5 plane on the bottom of the screen. The quicker the player solves the puzzle, the faster the limit gauge grows.
A feature of co-op play appears, wherein players can choose the assistance of another player during battle as the fifth character of the party. Afterwards, the player can choose to add the person as a friend.
Many music tracks from a variety of games within the series are featured.
