Final Fantasy Dimensions Brings Back 16 Bit JRPGs On August 31

By Spencer . August 22, 2012 . 10:44pm

Final Fantasy Dimensions could have been called Final Fantasy Flashback. While it has a new story with crystals and Light Warriors, Final Fantasy Dimensions plays like something from the Super Nintendo era. Square Enix originally created the game for feature phones and bumped up the graphics for iOS and Android.

    Another game that I would be interested in playing, but I can’t because it is limited to iOS. Oh well, I’ll have to pass then.

    • Kevadu

       You seem to be ignoring the part where it clearly says “Android”…

      • shindoihayato

        D K, don’t waste your typing stamina. It’s a lost cause.

        On mine (US) it only says iOS. But my friend in the EU, hers says Android. So yeah. Seems to be something weird going on.

    For the Iphone, there for useless to me.

    Wake me up when its for a superior phone like the Android Xperia Play with nativity for the gamepad. 

  • klkAlexar

    Isn’t it also for Android? 

    • Detrimont

      it says for android in the article, so yes, it is

  • Kevadu

    Empty post

    OK, I tried twice to reply to Justin Smith and for some reason it didn’t show up as a reply…screw this.

  • Andrew Austin

    Steam please.

    On my screen it only says iOS:

    But my friend in EU… hers says Android: http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt46/leavesandlight/androiddevices.png

    Um, I’m really confused…

    • http://www.facebook.com/JDS1087 Justin Smith

      *Edit* I take that back.

      http://na.square-enix.com/finalfantasydimensions says for Android as well.

      Basically some of these ads have been poorly made.

      EDIT EDIT EDIT
      …And apparently the home site for Square NA and the official site for the Game actually don’t agree with each other.

      http://www.square-enix.co.jp/smart/ffdl/en/ This says nothing about the Droid.

      • http://twitter.com/risspittman Riss Pittman

        Yeah I was wondering if maybe there’s two different versions of the articles in two different regions. Just wanted to link the screenies now before people start fighting each other over it :x

        Edit: I guess we’ll just have to wait and see when it actually comes out >__< Fingers crossed it's on both platforms!

    • http://twitter.com/risspittman Riss Pittman

      And now it says Android on mine too. Probably was just a mistake.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JDS1087 Justin Smith

    Square needs to bonk their NA Website administrators over the head for this mix up. They’ve got conflicting info on two directly linked pages.

  • Omikuji

    *grabby hands* I can’t waaaait

  • SupaPhly

    how about releasing it on a system… WITH BUTTONS
    (well I guess xperia play is an exception)

    • TouchSatori

      you don’t need buttons for these kind of games.
      -
      Day 1 purchase for me.

  • UUDDLRLR BASTART

    Brings back 16bit RPG’s? They are still being made in bulk.

    • Hraesvelgr

      They are?

      • Jirin

        Radiant Historia’s pretty close to a 16 bit RPG.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ted-Mahsun/585488899 Ted Mahsun

          I dunno… Radiant Historia is like a 32-bit RPG to me.

  • Jirin

    I’m excited about this.  Something to play on the bus.

    I like the wildly different HP totals the characters have.  When I first played FFVI it was my favorite game, but it bugged me that every character had roughly the same HP, whereas in FFIV they varied widely.

  • Jake_Indiman

    Hmmm. A brand new Final Fantasy in retro form….I love Square, hopefully there will be dozens of hours of gaming for their high mobile prices. Most of their games are $15 and up, on both iTunes and Google Play.

  • TheFoolArcana

    I wish they would just localize Type-0 instead of making phone games.

    • Bhunivelze

      Because this game had anything to do with Type-0 getting localized? So you’re  hating on this game just because it was made for cellphones? That is real smart. 

    • tha_Chiller

      we’re not good enough I suppose

  • kevinposta

    I was really really interested in this till I read it was in IoS…
    I really don’t like mobile phone gaming so I’ll pass, sorry :(

  • LustEnvy

    I expect this to have a Vita/3DS port in the future. Square-Enix did the same with the After Years. They know better than to let a new FF pass up console owners.

    • Göran Isacson

      Word to your mother. Waiting until they’ve rereleased this in some other form, for a format I actually own, seems like the wisest choice for now. Because I am not the type who says no to an old-school looking RPG from Square, I’m just the type that says “Waaiit for iiiiitt…”

    Since I do have an Android device, this is definitely something I’ll be watching when the introduction releases on the 31st. I love classic Final Fantasy, so I’m glad to see it still being supported.
