Remember five days ago when I posted that Final Fantasy Tactics ($13.99) was on sale and suggested that this was a pretty strong sign that the game was going to eventually get a 64-bit update? Well, it’s almost like we know what we’re talking about over here at TouchArcade because Squeenix just confirmed that a 64-bit update is in fact coming to Final Fantasy Tactics via updating the iTunes description of the game. The iTunes text now reads:
■When downloading the app, a message currently appears stating that “FFT WotL" requires an update.
We are working on an update which will be available in September.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
It’s pretty awesome for Square to be so on the ball with compatibility updates, particularly considering how long it took for the iOS 9 updates to hit the last time iOS updates totally broke old Square games. New iPhones typically are released in mid to late September, with the new version of iOS hitting around the same time. Depending on the timing of all this, there might not be any downtime where the game is actually unplayable, but, you never know.
Great news none the less!
