Final Fantasy V coming to iOS
Hot on the tail of today's iOS release of Final Fantasy IV (it's the 3DS version without the second screen), Square Enix teases the upcoming release of Final Fantasy V on iOS.
FFV has previously only been ported to the PlayStation and GameBoy Advance, and unlike Final Fantasies I, III, and IV, it never received a graphical boost. Whether Square Enix will spend the time and effort to make V look at least as modern as IV remains to be seen, though I have my doubts.
Mum's the word on pricing as well, but FFIV launched today at $15.99, so expect another ridiculously high amount for a cell phone game. That said, Final Fantasy Tactics is currently on sale for $9.99. Keep your eyes open for sales, I guess.
The trailer also teased "more" games in the future. We can only hope for a mobile Final Fantasy VI.
Are any of you g1s excited about playing through Bartz's adventures on your Apple devices? Have you all lost faith in the once-great developer? Do you think they'll ever realize that $5 is high for a mobile game? Let us know in the comments!

Final Fantasy IV the after years would be a GREAT IOS release btw
you forgot to mention that Final Fantasy 2 did receive a graphical boost on the IOS.
I REALLY doubt FFV will receive any type of update. It will probably be the GBA version with game center challenges. Usually if a game as popular as this one receives a graphical boost they would release it first on a console (except for FF2 surprisingly). Personally I'm not excited for this game cause I burnt myself out mastering all my characters and classes back on the GBA version years ago lol. I never wanna go through that again.
Square really should just make a nice FF6 remake already in the style of FF3 and 4 DS, release it on other consoles first, then let IOS games get it eventually down the line. That's the only way I know they would do it right and justice. Plus, if they know what's good for them, they would have a lot of success financially (even if it is for a virtual console) following that plan. I LOVE FF6 so much, that's my favorite of the final fantasy's, but really, I don't feel like playing the old game all over again. I want a new experience like with the remakes, so if they re-release the old 6 (which will probably be the PS1 or GBA remake) on IOS, like they are obviously gonna do with V, it's gonna be blah personally. It's cool, but I'm not too excited -_- It's like what's been happening to Mega Man with capcom, they have a good opportunity to do something GREAT, but they probably won't follow through with it most likely. They are about making money NOW, not necessarily pleasing ALL their fans. But here's hoping otherwise.
hmm, now that I think about it, a FFV remake in the style of FF2 IOS wouldn't be too far-fetched a possibility......
NO SQUARE! NO! BAD! Games like this belong on gaming devices, not on iPhones. FFV being one of my favorites in the series, I'd be really upset if this never got a proper release on a proper gaming platform.
" ...it never received a graphical boost" Uh, yes it did. The GBA version had updated graphics from the SNES original. Anyway, i don't have an iPhone, so unless this is coming to Android, i don't care.
No way they release a enhanced version on iOS first. FFV on 3DS/Vita for sure.... OR I SHALL SEND YOU ALL TO THE VOID!
Don't break tradition Square, 3DS!
Yay release more ports on a device with no buttons. The future of gaming right here folks.
3DS or GTFO Squeenix!
...yeah, umm...no. i don't care. release it on 3DS or VITA and i might give a crap.
Make it for 3DS and I'' be all over it
If its a graphical upgrade, ill get it. Most likely if it is, it will also get a hand held port of some sort. here's hoping!
If it releases on iOS, I'm not going to get this game. I just prefer to play these games on my dedicated gaming consoles.
Would it be better if Final Fantasy's future should be on iOS as oppose to HD consoles?
Soon, all those taking shits shall know the glories that come with fighting like true men! And ladies who dress like men! Gilgamesh! On! THE! TOILET!!!!!!
