FINAL FANTASY TACTICS: THE WAR OF THE LIONS for iPhone now available on the App Store

For Turn based strategy fans, the long wait on the iOS is over. Square Enix has finally released what is arguably the best TBS RPG of all time –  FINAL FANTASY TACTICS: THE WAR OF THE LIONS. Originally released in 1997 on the Playstation, it went on to sell close to 2.5 million copies worldwide and was eventually released as War of the Lions on the PSP in 2007, with extra content like all new jobs and scenarios. The iPhone version is essentially a port of the PSP, though Square Enix has managed to speed up loading times and optimized the visuals. The only downside to the game is it’s premium price tag – $15.99 – which could scare away more casual gamers. But I’m sure hard core fans of the classic TBS will have no qualms picking it up to relive the epic adventure. And for those of you who’d rather play this on the iPad, you may want to hold off for a bit as that version will be released in the fall. Launch trailer after the break…
