Final Fantasy IV: The After Years now available for Android and iOS
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years was a sequel to the 1991 Final Fantasy IV. It was originally released in serialized format on mobile devices in Japan in 2008 before making its way to WiiWare, and now it has been completely updated and released on Android and iOS. The game has been completely remade in 3D, and of course the controls have been revamped for touchscreen devices.

The game is split into ten different episodes and follows the stories of 10 different characters. You will fight your way using the Active Time Battle system, which is affected by the phases of the moon in the game, changing both physical and magical attacks. As is usually the case with Final Fantasy games, the story promises many hours of gameplay to complete. 

And, that's a good thing, because the game costs $15.99 on Android and $19.99 on iOS, so you would expect to get quite a bit of game for that money. The game supports iOS 4.3 and higher, and can be run on both iPhone or iPad. On Android, it supports Android 2.3 and higher and both phones and tablets. However, for those on Android 4.4, it should be noted that the game will not run if you have ART enabled, you must be using the Dalvik runtime.

Mobile hardware now is equal to PC at least in 2007-2008, GTA IV no problem so why don't bring FF7 or 8 to Android and iOS?
I can play through simulation but I prefer the real app.

Well they stopped being lazy and started optimizing the games for touch use. They also started updating the art work and so it takes a while. Those games there are much MUCH larger and tougher to port with such updates. Also, do not forget the endless FMVs that hit with the PS versions of FF games, so those will be very large games even with solid compression.

Sony's reasoning is that the games are too big for the app store size limits.

Maybe so.. And, there's a lot of developers who haven't caught on yet, and that's a fact.. But, all that really matters is more important big name developers who have the resources are jumping on board.. That means that soon facetious comments like yours will be a thing of the past.. But, thanks for the comment.

Its still not worth it to put the time and money into developing it yet. Still not enough market share. The wouldn't see profit from the labor spent. That is the one and probably only reason.

That was my question because I'm a WP fan, but you're obviously not, so why do you keep asking this❔.. Why do you keep asking❔ It's simple.. You are trying to prove a petty point that is old news.. Which doesn't make you look like anything but, old news.. Why don't you do something positive to help WP❔ Why don't you do that❔
