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.
