One of the great things about the App Store is the many retro titles that have either been ported or remade for iOS devices. In terms of role-playing games, they don't get much more classic than Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II from Square Enix. These two titles were remade for the PSP a few years back with improved graphics and tweaked gameplay, and earlier this year those enhanced versions made their way to the App Store. Both games made the transition to the touch screen rather well, and offered a great old-school RPG experience for gamers on the go.
Just a few hours ago, both Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II were updated to include Chinese and French language support. To celebrate these updates, Square Enix has dropped the price of each title from $8.99 to $3.99 for one week only. Admittedly it's kind of a weird thing to celebrate with a 55% off sale, but if you've previously been on the fence about picking up either game then I don't think you'll be arguing about their decision. Here's a lengthy video showing the first ten minutes of gameplay from Final Fantasy on the iPhone:
Make sure to take a look at our extensive review of both titles from February for more information. Additionally, you can join the discussion in the Final Fantasy thread or Final Fantasy II thread in our forums if you're looking for help or just want to talk about either game.
