Final Fantasy I is a classic RPG everybody remembers playing on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). If you want to download the app for free for iPhone and iPad, you can acquire it at no charge via the English version of the Final Fantasy Portal app for iOS, released last week.

Square Enix says the Portal app is a “general portal app for information on all things to do with Final Fantasy, so you can get all the latest news about Final Fantasy games, books, music, merchandise, events and more.”
