Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for the iPhone — yes, it still exists! — has been delayed again. Back in May, Square Enix said the game would see its release between late June and mid July, but that isn’t the case any more.


Now, Tactics is slated for a late July release. To make up for the delay, assistant producer, Shiina, answered a few questions about the iPhone port. One of the features removed from the iPhone version, he revealed, is the multiplayer mode.


Here’s the brief Q&A below:


Is the slow-down problem solved?

Yes! It’s definitely faster, comfortable to play.

We’ll show it in the trailer or a movie clip.


Is it a universal app?

No. We’ll release iPhone ver and iPad ver both.


When will you release the iPad version?

Now we plan to release it 1 month later than iPhone version.


Supported 3GS?

Yes! Absolutely!


3G also supported?

No. We tried to support 3G but it was toooo slow to play the game.


Does it have the Multiplayer mode.

Nope. We had to cut it off for iOS devices.



No. We don’t plan to release add-ons now.


Did you add the autosave function?

Yes! Exactly!

If you get a phone call, the game will be automatically saved and you can get back to the game immediately.

Honestly…it took much time to add this function. It made the dev team exhausted.
