If current trends hold their course, it looks as though we may end up with that highly anticipated iOS port of Final Fantasy VII after all. But first we're being treated to Final Fantasy VI, which makes its first appearance on the App Store today (well, following yesterday's sudden appearance on the New Zealand app store).
At 16 bucks, it's not exactly cheap, but it may be worth the additional dollars if you've been looking for a classic RPG experience set in one of the world's most beloved franchises. Along with upgraded graphics, this new version features a redesigned interface and support for saves in the cloud.
It's also bursting with content, as Square Enix packed it with the extra content created for the Game Boy Advance release in 2006, which includes everything from a bestiary and three new spells to four new playable Espers and two new areas.
You're better off playing it on a new device, though. If you try to play it on the iPhone 4, for instance, Square Enix warns that "certain in-game conditions may cause the app to close unexpectedly." To counter that, it warns, save your game often. If you're playing on an iPhone 4s or on an iPad 2 (or later), though, you should be just fine. Download it here.
