We knew (magically), it was coming after the Japanese App Store release. Final Fantasy 5 is available now for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The remade, remastered version of the Final Fantasy classic adds new job classes, including the Gladiator, Cannoneer, Oracle, and Necromancer.
It also features a new optional boss named Enuo, designed by Tetsuya Nomura. And, as a bonus, all the graphics and textures have been overhauled. Some longtime fans will be disappointed by the strange new menu style (I know I was). And the price tag is a tad absurd for a mobile remake of a game that came out, god knows how many decades ago ($15.99). Still it’s FFV.
In related news, Chaos Rings is now on Windows Phone 7.5, and will be coming to Windows 8 soon for about $9.99.
