Final Fantasy I & II will give plenty of iPhone owners time to kill
Anyone that's used to playing role playing games will know that there's a lot of time that needs to be invested in beating a game. The same is true with Final Fantasy I & II that's finally been outed to the App Store today priced at $9 a piece. There's no doubt that these games will really test the boundaries of how iPhone owners will balance out work and play as they attempt to embark on a long voyage in completing the quest bestowed upon them. This isn't your ordinary port because the original Final Fantasy game will include five bonus dungeons, The Soul of Chaos pack, and The Labyrinth of Time. Its sequel, Final Fantasy II, will also contain five bonus dungeons with the Soul of Rebirth and Arcane Labyrinth packs. The controls have been obviously tweaked to accommodate the iPhone's touchscreen. If you do plan on downloading either of the games, just be prepared to tell friends and family members your whereabouts as you embark on an epic quest with these games – just remember to take some needed breaks to give your eyes some time to recover.

I swear Iphonearena is always sweating the dumbest things, I emulate better games than this horse crap for free. Grand Theft Auto advanced blows away ANYTHING crapple spews, and I am rocking MK, Super Mario Bros and just about every other great game genesis or super nes has to offer. Report actual ground breaking news, things that are news worthy , things that are amazing. This is nothing to report, seems desperate and fan boyish ! Anything that this lame company does gets these guys all excited and they post another meaningless article . Why dont you report how T mobile now has block breaker 3 on the sidekick??????????. I mean , thats just about the same thing.

Dude, this is Epic! Every website should report the fact that the iPhone can now support FF Games. If /when the Droid has it, they should report it... and any other phone that gets it in the future. This is hella Groundbreaking. Final Fantasy games are freaking amazing! Get a life.

Yea I've been playing FF games on my Droid for a while now. The D-Pad and keyboard really makes things easy to play.

This would be the only reason I ever buy an Apple product... but if it is available for the iPod Touch, it is just a matter of time until webOS and Android get it too... I think everyone will forgo WM until WP7s comes out... But I can play these via BGA and PSX emulators on my Vogue... I just don't get any sound.

I highly doubt Android or WebOS or any other smartphone OS will get it. Square Enix has been releasing Apple only games since the iPod Video. This is including several other games that have been released for the iPod Touch/iPhone like Crystal Defenders or Song Summoner. Either Apple struck a deal with Square Enix a while ago or they just have a favoritism for them. But emulators versus the actual game from the company makes a big deal in terms of future development for new software. You can always play the old games but you'll eventually be left out of all the good new ones. If Android was even going to get this game Square would have given a sign by porting one of their iPhone games or make a new one but seeing as how there isn't one Square game for any other platform it doesn't look like you'll be seeing them in the near future.

I know... I would rather pay for an official than use an emulator... I use the emulator as a work around b/c I want something that is capable of running on my device, that is neglected by the developers. I would much rather have the touch version, rather than have to pair a BT keyboard for the controls.
