Final Fantasy Tactics Hits Game Archives

imageContinuing their trend of releasing Final Fantasy games as PlayStation Archive downloads Square Enix put Final Fantasy Tactics online. Not Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, the original PsOne game.


If you have a Japanese account you can play Final Fantasy Tactics on your PlayStation 3 and PSP with less load times. Like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy Tactics is sold as a premium game for 1,000 yen ($10).


Two other games are out this week too. Here’s the complete list:

Arubarea no Otome
Final Fantasy Tactics* (1,000 yen)
Zeus Carnage Heart Second

    I love how S-E completely ignores NA/EU PS3 owners by making all their titles for 360 but supports Japan like the S-E of old. Just doesn’t make any sense to me.

      I’m sure Square Enix wouldn’t mind releasing these downloads here. The problem rests with SCEA.

  • Tom

    True as far as PSone games go it does seem to be a SCEA problem but what about games like Crystal Defenders? Outside of Microsoft what is keeping that off the PSN? I don’t want to come off like a fanboy but this whole deal with MS and S-E is begining to piss me off. I have no problem with S-E making 360 games or being multi-plat but they support the PS3 about as much as they did the N64, and I can’t help but think that it has more to do with dirty business tactics then cartridges vs CD-ROM :p .

      Well, it probably just has to do with timetables and market performance. PS3 hasn’t done all that well and it came a little later, those are the major reasons 360’s gotten some priority upfront. If any platform owners should be annoyed by SE’s output thus far, it’s really Wii owners…

      • CleruTesh

        I’m a Wii owner, and SE is brining me FF IV: The After Years in about two weeks. Not annoyed at all.
        Side note, Final Fantasy Tactics is the moment I started hating SRPGs, so I don’t really care which platforms/countries get this game. It’s so frickin’ complicated!
