Remember when I said Square Enix was planning to port Final Fantasy to the iPhone?

Well, the port has hit the U.S. App Store--at the rather attractive price of $8.99. (Attractive compared to the $19.99 price tag attached to the nearly identical PSP version of the game, at least.)

Anyway, here's a video of someone playing said port:

An iPhone port of Final Fantasy II--aka "the Final Fantasy even the biggest Final Fantasy fanboys should ignore"--is available, too, and also costs $8.99.

I'd probably pick up part one if I had an iPhone or an iPod touch. As it is, I'll probably pick it up for the PSP--if I can find it somewhere for $9.99 or less.

Ho hum. I think Square should put some effort into making a new Final Fantasy game in the style of FFVI. That was pretty much the pinnacle for me, and it really hasn't aged.

Sadly, I think the only 2D Final Fantasies that are going to get the green light these days are remakes of "old" (NES, SNES and maybe GB) Final Fantasies--or "side stories" of those games, like FFIV: The After Years. I'd actually like to see more of the latter, to tell you the truth. A prequel or sequel to FFVI would be like a dream come true.

Secret shame, never played final fantasy, so yes I am downloading it to my iPhone as I type!

Are you saying you've never played *any* Final Fantasy, Fidgy, or are you saying you've never played the *first* Final Fantasy? Either way, I hope you enjoy it!

Just know that these modern remakes of the first Final Fantasy are much easier than the original NES version. So, if it's too easy for you, check out the NES version if you're able.

Not played any at all! I know, I feel ashamed! I might indeed look up some modern ff games but heard bad things about crystal chronicals which made me never bother

Crystal Chronicles was kind of crap. It was a different breed of game, honestly, than any of the others. It's cool if you like that sort of game, but if you were looking for a by-the-book Final Fantasy experience, III for the SNES (actually #6) was amazing.
