The Final Fantasy Mobile Revolution Begins – Is a Final Fantasy V Remake Coming to iOS?

Oprainfall writes:

"For those of you who are unaware, the Final Fantasy IV you’ve probably played on your DS or PSP is available now on mobile platforms. Something noteworthy that immediately took the attention of our staff away from news of “another iOS port from Square-Enix” was this teaser image that appears at the end of the video linked above." (Final Fantasy V, iPad, iPhone, Square Enix)

If this is only for mobile I am FINISHED with anything Final Fantasy from now on. They've screwed fans over one too many times, doing a remake just for mobile phones will be the last straw for me.

I will just go ahead and reveal the truth..

FFversusXIII, Kingdom Hearts III, and Final Fantasy X and VII HD are never coming out.

All Final Fantasy games will be on iOS and XIII-4 will come out in 2015.


In all seriousness. This is garbage how SE has done almost everything backwards this gen. iOS is awesome for the fans, but they aren't just moving to the casuals, they are abandoning the hardcore loyalists. And I joke above, but I wouldn't be surprised if that all happened as such.

? what do you want it for?

on topic: it's easy to see why SE is bringing more to the mobile market, if you don't get it just ask and i might tell you. i still have ff anthology in a drawer though... never beat 5 lol. i'm still waiting for a chrono trigger update for ios6

PSN, XBLA, Steam, 3DS, Vita? Take your pick, I don't care... Anything other than just phones.
crxss  +   1073d ago
steam? Lmao are you dreaming? also it's already on PSN, therefore probably works on Vita. It's also on the Virtual Console in Japan, super nes, and ps1... Are you telling me you don't have access to any one of those? Yeah I thought so

Dude take it easy. I was just listing off platforms in an attempt to say I don't care what else as long as it makes it to something other than just mobile phones. I don't think it'll make it to Steam, just throwing that out there.

Also, if it's just the regular FFV game, I won't care. Though this is stating it could be a remake of some sort. So no, PSN, VC in Japan, SNES, and PS1 do not have a remade version.
crxss  +   1073d ago
you should check out what FFV is out for before wishing it was out for those systems...

Square Enix have been placing WAY too much focus on the mobile market recently. Sure, it's a good way to make money for THEM, but it's not a good platform for fully-fledged RPGs like this, TWEWY, FF:IV and the like.

And I get the impression that this "Mobile revolution" is going to include a lot more of these types of games, ones that aren't suited to iOS. Square Enix really need to get their heads out of their asses and pay attention to what their fans ACTUALLY want.

And it doesn't help that fanboys and girls will go ahead and buy it anyway. People like that drive me up the wall, because they cause this kind of crap.

I'm not going to be buying anything to play mobile games on. But, if it's an actual remake, and not a straight port, I'll keep an eye on it. If they port it (the remake) to another system, I'd pick it up.

5 has never been my favorite FF, anyway. Now a remake of 6...that makes my mouth water...
DarkBlood  +   1074d ago
3DS or vita release or console or just GTFO lol :P
ABizzel1  +   1073d ago
You do realize it's been on PSN for over a year now. And is supposedly in the works for 3DS.

So yeah it should work for Vita since it's a PS1 classic.

I really don't understand all the hate for mobile. If this was really that important to you guys you would have already downloaded the game and KNOWN it was out on PSN, or played it how many years ago when it was on tons of different platforms.

If you don't have a smart phone do yourself a favor and get one, and stop hating on it. You'll be surprised at the quality of some games on them. Sure there's a ton of shovel-ware, but games like N.O.V.A, Six Guns, Dead Trigger, and more are easily console quality titles (at least PSN/XBLA, and for those prices).
RaikRhythm  +   1073d ago
Some mobile games are okay, and they suit that platform. I like Jetpack Joyride, Angry Birds, Temple Run and other cool games like that,

But as I stated above, the mobile is not a place for full-blown RPGs like the FF games. Plus, it;s clearly nothing more than a money-grab by Square Enix.

I want to see Square Enix stop focussing on the games they USED to make and start making newer ones of that calibre for something with more than 3 hours of battery life. It's like they're trying to deflect the crappiness of some of their recent games and decisions by appeasing us with mobile games - except it's not working, and they don't seem to get that.
DarkBlood  +   1073d ago
lol i forgotten about the ps1 game but if a chance for physical release im taking it
DarkZane  +   1074d ago
Instead of doing those things, just finish Versus XIII and release it. Then, your company can die for all I care.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1074d ago
it should go to 3DS. In fact they should remake VI on 3DS as well. I mean srsly does anyone really play full blown games on iOS?
hot4play  +   1074d ago
Not to mention Apple changes hardware every year. I lol'd when my friend's ipod (2010) couldnt run Square Enix's Theatrhythm from the App store. I was like, seriously?

Yes! to FF5 & 6 remake on the 3ds (and Vita too) ;)
strigoi814  +   1074d ago
square enix is just making their own graveyard..
Godmars290  +   1074d ago
There is no "revolution", just rehash.

Overpriced rehash in regards to the platform at that.
Kos-Mos  +   1074d ago
Yeah, I want to play a RPG on something with 3-hour battery life;smart phones...
The Great Melon  +   1074d ago
boo... less iOS more Android.
Oh yeah
Square Enix get back to work and make the games such as Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Kingdom Hearts III you promised me over 7 years.
-Gespenst-  +   1073d ago
It better get a 3ds and/or Vita port then. Cause I ain't playin it otherwise.

And this means VI might be on iOS too, which is actually a crime.
