    I sent an email to Square Enix asking if they had any plans on releasing a Final Fantasy Tactics or similar game onto the App Store and this is what reply I got.

    Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX Customer Support,

    We hope this letter answers your questions.

    Our parent company, SQUARE ENIX Co., Ltd. of Japan, has no current plans to re-release that particular title at this time. This is not to say that it will never happen, it's just that SQUARE ENIX of Japan is currently focusing on numerous other projects.

    We hope that this information has been of some assistance, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

    Thanks,
    Anthony P- SQUARE ENIX Customer Support

    I hate those types of replies. They might as well say: "We're not making it now, we're not making it later. Have a nice day." Ugh.

    Hmmm... Maybe if more people e-mailed in we could get a different response?
    You know customer service agents are, everyone is different...

    Having worked in one a long time ago, I can tell you that they mostly copy and paste a similar answer to anyone asking the same question. Don't get your hopes up too high.

    Start a petition for it..... eventually once they see the sales figures for apps and the potential revenue they will bring some kind of RPG for the iPhone/iTouch

    So there are probabilities that it never will happen?

    The market isn't ready for games of that scope at the price point they're after.

    What would they be asking. If EA can release famous games under 10 bucks then surely they would get alot of money out of Final Fantasy at $9.99

    Why would they undercut the perceived value of their crown jewel franchise by selling it at roughly 30% of the value on other platforms? (Speaking of Final Fantasy Tactics)

    They're testing the waters right now with Crystal Defenders, to see if there's any money to be made on the platform. It's a low-risk project for them, and if it ends up profitable they may consider taking a bigger risk with another title.
