Earlier we posted about the upcoming release of the Final Fantasy series on the iPhone. Well, for you fans out there Final Fantasy I & II was released yesterday in the App Store! Both apps are priced reasonably at $8.99 and will bring back hours of nostalgia.
Here are the descriptions of both games:
Initially released in Japan in 1987, the original FINAL FANTASY amazed audiences with its rich story and stunning graphics.
Players guide the Warriors of Light as they set out on a quest to restore the crystals to their former luster. Its side view battles, choice and promotion of character classes, and sprawling world explored with fantastic vehicles quickly became standards of the series. This game set the stage for all FINAL FANTASY games to come.
This edition also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game–the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time.
FINAL FANTASY II
The highly anticipated follow-up to the original FINAL FANTASY, released in Japan in 1988.
FINAL FANTASY II features the bitter and beautiful tale of four war-orphaned heroes who become embroiled in the conflict between the hostile Empire of Palamecia and the rebel resistance. Eschewing conventional leveling for a proficiency system that allows players to tailor their characters’ growth, and incorporating a key term memory system that makes dialogue integral to gameplay, this game sparked the spirit of innovation for which the series has become known.
This edition also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game–the Soul of Rebirth and the Arcane Labyrinth.
Looking at those gorgeous screenshots above makes me want to buy both games immediately! The only issue is finding the time to play them. However, if a lazy Sunday rolls around and I have some spare time…I just might have to indulge on one of the best RPG series of all time.
