Looking for the FMA Mobile release date? Square Enix’s mobile adaptation of the FMA manga series is set to launch sometime in 2022, though despite months of pre-marketing and even a teaser trailer, there’s still quite a bit we don’t yet know about FMA Hagane.
This guide covers what we do know, though, including trailers so far, how the gacha system works, and when we might expect it to launch in the West.
While we wait for more official announcements, there’s still plenty of anime goodness to keep you busy on mobile. Our Genshin Impact Ganyu build guide has everything you need to sweep the field with the game’s best DPS character.

When is the FMA Mobile release date?
FMA Mobile released in the summer of 2022 with a global release still unconfirmed at this stage. Expect pre-registrations to open up for a global version as soon as it's announced.
What Is FMA Mobile?
FMA Hagane (or FMA Mobile to English-speaking fans) is Square Enix’s adaptation of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga in mobile game form. It reportedly follows the manga closely, so if you’ve read that or seen Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, you’ll have a decent idea of what the narrative is about.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen an FMA game or one from Square Enix, though it is one of a handful to adapt the original anime. Square Enix published the Japan-only Prince of the Dawn in 2009 for the Wii as an original story, and Dual Sympathy on the Nintendo DS followed the original anime, which departed drastically from the manga.
Will FMA Mobile havegacha?
Yes, though it seems the FMA game may be less gacha intense than some of Square Enix’s other gacha games, such as Kingdom Hearts Union X.
That game encouraged spending to get traits and better rolls on characters. The FMA pre-registration page lists gems, items, and Winry as bonuses, so it’s possible it’ll resemble Genshin Impact more and rely on character pulls instead.
FMA Mobile trailer
Square Enix published a teaser trailer after announcing the game in 2021, which you can check out below.
And there’s another brief look at FMA’s cutscenes, characters, and combat in this trailer snagged by a fan on Twitter.
We'll hopefully have more FMA Mobile news to share once the game is announced for a global release. Until then, check out Nikke codes for an upcoming mobile idle game.
