Square Enix Starts Making Windows Phone Games With Final Fantasy

By Spencer . June 14, 2012 . 3:30pm

imageAdding to the long list of devices you can play Final Fantasy on, Square Enix just released a Windows Phone port. This version is based on the iPhone release, so extra features like the Soul of Chaos and Labyrinth of Time dungeons are part of the package.

 

Final Fantasy for Windows Phone also uses the enhanced sprites from the 20th Anniversary PSP remake.

 

You can get Final Fantasy on a snazzy Nokia phone and fight Lich all over again for $6.99.

    ALMOST COMPLETE GLOBAL SATURATION.

      Not yet, we are still missing some kind of 3DS version. The DS/Lite at least could play the GBA version… I’m fully expecting Squenix to eventually release it again on the eShop though.

      Oh and also Android. That’s actually a pretty big hole.

      • MrRobbyM

        Okay. I edited my comment.

        We actually *have* Final Fantasy for Android.
        I dont know whether it’s already released on western market or not though

          The Android version of FF3 is out in Japan only, it’ll probably come out in US soon.

    It’s not exclusive to Nokia WP7 devices though. ;)

    Lets not release it to the most used phone os out there shall we?

    • gouramiagogo

      Many (dare I say most) Andriod users just got the phone for free, and don’t really use it as a smart phone.

        Then you truly have no clue then in other words, I would say the truly oposite.

    • mirumu

      I’d hazard a guess that developing for Android scares them purely because of the number of devices they’d have to test with. Maybe that testing is just slowing down the release?

      Still, I’d think an Android version would make a lot more money than this WP7 version will.

      • malek86

        Given that the WP7 version is Xbox Live, I’d guess Microsoft at least partly funded the development.

        The number of Android devices shouldn’t be a big problem (it’s a 2D game anyway, should be smooth even on relatively low-end devices), I’m thinking it has more to do with the average popular app’s price on Android being generally far lower than on iOS/WP7. Perhaps Squenix thinks they can’t get away with a $7 price point, and they also don’t want to release a free ad-supported version.

    • malek86

      I think the main problem with Android is that people seem to vastly prefer free apps. And I doubt Squenix is gonna release a free, ad-supported version of Final Fantasy, so maybe they just prefer not to bother. A $7 price point would probably be too much anyway. For comparison, iOS and WP players are more used to paying for games.

    Already have the amazing PSP version, and the iPhone version. It’s a really nice game.

  • revenent hell
