Japanese publisher Square Enix is somewhat synonymous with role-playing games, so it comes as no surprise to see the company unleash another epic adventure onto the App Store.
Not just any old RPG, mind, but rather the latest instalment on iOS of Squeenix’s much heralded and commercially successful video game franchise Final Fantasy.
To commemorate the arrival of Final Fantasy III on iPhone, the Tokyo-based firm has reduced the price of its entire back catalogue for a limited time.
So, for the combined outlay of £8.87, you can engross yourself for hours – nay, weeks – in one of our Top 10 games of 2010 Chaos Rings, the highly Qi rated Secret of Mana, AND the bewitching Song Summoner.
As for Final Fantasy III itself, this story of an unlikely hero has wasted little time in marking its territory on the Quality Index charts, levelling up on more than one occasion to capture second spot at present.
New 3D visuals and story sequences bespoke to iPhone and iPod touch complement the existing deep and iconic gameplay, with Pocket Gamer contending that “like canned fruit, Final Fantasy III is still sweet and satisfying years after inception.”
Download Final Fantasy III now for £9.49 / $15.99 / €12.99 and forget about the outside world forever. Perhaps.
