ffiv_ios1Square Enix is re-releasing Final Fantasy IV for the… eleventh time (if you count Easytype and digital downloads like the PSN version) and believe it or not there is already another mobile phone version. So, what makes Final Fantasy IV for iOS and Android different than the 2008 remake for Nintendo DS?

 

Final Fantasy IV for iOS and Android has a difficulty selection option, Chinese text (a first, I believe), and enhanced graphics. Here’s a look at how Final Fantasy IV stacks up against… Final Fantasy IV.
