With the announcement that Final Fantasy IV will be coming soon to iOS, Square Enix has dropped prices on their beloved FF games on the App Store. This marks the first time this year they’ve been discounted:
Today, you can relive the heady days of the late 1980′s, but in 1990′s style: Square Enix have released both FINAL FANTASY I & II today at the App Store. Both are masked in glorious Super Famicom-style colour and iPhone-tailored resolution. FINAL FANTASY sports ‘bonus dungeons’ from Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time editions of the game while FINAL FANTASY II hacks along with the bonus dungeons from Soul of Rebirth and the Arcane Labyrinth editions of the game. Of course, this will probably be the biggest news for Anime RPG lovers till the next Final Fantasy debuts on the iPhone. Feel free to discuss the release of FINAL FANTASY I & II in our forums!

Nothing can stop the juggernaut that is Final Fantasy. It is the RPG most perched on the top rung of anime RPG fans’ list of favourites. Not only does it play cute, it plays with incredible stories which laugh at the best creations of its rivals. Thankfully, we have a lot to look forward to as both Final Fantasy I and II are headed to the iDevice. Shall we sing collective fanfare now, or wait till after dindin? I am of the opinion that even Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars may find a shady spot to rest in till the Final Fantasy news cools down. UPDATE: FINAL FANTASY I & II have been released!
Let’s hope the legendary Square Enix outdoes itself.
More piccies after the gap:
Hironobu Sakaguchi, the mastermind behind the fabled Final Fantasy series, now has his mind set on Apple’s mobile gaming platform – the iPhone. Mr. Sakaguchi and his team at Mistwalker rung in the New Year with a bang and teaser message on the website:
“2010 is the year of my long-awaited new blockbuster project…
Oh, by the way, We are also working on a project for iPhone.
This should be released soon as well.
We will put our efforts together and do our best!
I’m sure you’ll Love it.”
While no more information was given, it’s more than enough to make us salivate and hope that the game runs along the lines of Final Fantasy or Blue Dragon. Whatever the case maybe, just knowing that this “blockbuster project” is being created by a gaming legend is more than enough reassurance that it will indeed be awesome.
So, 2010 has arrived on a positive note thus far, and there’s much to look forward to.
