Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions Travels To iPhone This Week

Square Enix are finally done porting and getting Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions approved for the iPhone. The game will be released this Thursday (August 4th) for 1800 yen, $15.99 or 12.99 euro, depending on where you live. Here’s the first footage:



War of the Lions isn’t a universal app. Square have discussed an iPad release of the game in the past, and this is still in development. The iPad version will be released sometime this autumn, at least a month from now, if not more.


The iPhone version of War of the Lions doesn’t include the PSP version’s multiplayer mode and only runs on 3GS devices. Square say they attempted to have the game run on 3G devices, but that it was too slow to be played.

  • Nice that they managed to get the game running on iOS, but…I can get this game for 10eur off the PSN store any moment now. So I guess I’ll stick to that for now.

      I’m fine with mah King of Fighters-i for now.

      Now if Sega made Shenmue 1 & 2 for iPhone/iPad….

  • Looks pretty elaborate.  The camera especially.  Can’t say I’m a fan of that blue bar across the bottom though.  I’ll be picking it up even though I own like every version.  I love tactics that much.

  • I’m going to stick with my PSP version thanks. I really don’t think touch controls like that work. It worked on the DS due to the stylus and all, but fingers are too big for this.

    I really hope that Final Fantasy III for iPad receives a nice discount once FFT for iPhone launches.

    And I’ll wait for FFT on the iPad.

  • it seems they fixed the speed on the iphone version shame that couldn’t be done on the psp :(

  • The small text and framerate issues prevented me from playing the PSP ver. I’m glad that the iOS ver. is so much better. 

  • This needs to be on the Android AS WELL! IT HAS TOO!
