Square Enix have announced that their medieval-fantasy role-playing game Final Fantasy V is now available for download via the Google Play store for Android devices. While most mobile games would not set you back more than 99 cents if not a little bit more. But hey, with Square Enix releasing full blown RPG’s on the Android device they come at a considerably higher price….. $16.99 AUD to be precise.
Return to the classic medieval tale of magic, monsters and friendship in Final Fantasy V. Twenty years after the original Final Fantasy V released in Japan, the classic RPG has found its way to mobile devices. Embark on an epic adventure with four heroes driven together by fate: Bartz and his Chocobo companion, Princess Lenna of Castle Tycoon, the mysterious Galuf, and the pirate captain Faris.
This wasn’t the only announcement made by the company, with plans on bringing another classic Final Fantasy title to mobile devices this year – Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. While no price has been confirmed, they have a tentative release date of Winter 2013 for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices.
A direct sequel to Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is set a dozen years later than its predecessor. Several characters from the first game, including Cecil, Rosa and Cain, will be making a comeback, with players being introduced to Ceodore, the son of Cecil and Rosa, as the central character. Moreover, the title sets forth different scenarios for each of its main characters, creating an epic new tale. Carrying over some of the same mechanics from Final Fantasy IV, the game allows players to enjoy additional unique features such as the “Age of Moon” and “Band” abilities. The game will feature 3D polygon characters and the extensive story of all ten chapters is included.
