Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions has arrived for iPhone/iPod touch!

Released as the Final Fantasy series' first tactical RPG in 1997, Final Fantasy Tactics on Playstation went on to sell over 2.4 million copies worldwide. The game grew in popularity upon its re-release in 2007 as Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for the PSP with added features such as new movies, scenarios and Jobs.

Now, in 2011 the game has finally arrived for the iPhone/iPod touch! You can enjoy the game whose story gave life to the world of Ivalice, and whose high strategy battles bring tactical games to a whole new level.

Game features
- Intuitive Touch Screen Controls
The complex tactical game can be effortlessly and intuitively controlled by simply tapping units and menus. Gone is the old method of switching fixed map views - you can now rotate, move and change the size of maps as you please by sliding and pinching.

- Improved Loading Times
Loading times have been improved to get you into the action quicker than ever. What's more, you can even skip certain cut scenes.

If all you want to do is discuss the price of FFT on iOS (doesnt matter if you are defending or complaining), please do it here instead. Keep this thread limited to actual game impressions only please.

i saw this and had a heart attack, haha. been waiting for this for ages!

Important info here for everyone:
-Supports iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3rd generation and later. For a more enjoyable experience, playing on iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th generation or later devices is recommended.
Edit: on iTunes, it lists iOS 4.0 as the minimum version required. So if you're jailbroken, this means you don't need to update or anything.

The game is 456 mb to download and it takes up 636.7 mb after installing.

Edit2: There is no option for Japanese language in the English version, even if you switch your device's language to Japanese.

I am personally experiencing a little slowdown on spell cast, but haven't restarted phone since getting things up and running in the game, having trouble putting it down long enough to do so.
For even more speed, set your text speed to "fast".

There is some slowdown when casting spells or using abilities. It is especially noticeable in battles with rain or other weather, but pretty okay otherwise.

The "reverb" or "echo" sound issue from the PSP version was not changed.

Which is a better game on iPhone: This or Secret of Mana?

I'm not asking about the original games, I know they're both legendary. I'm asking about the quality of the port, controls, 'trueness' to the original version, etc.

Halleluja! It is finally here. I think I can skip all other games for the next 120+ game hours now.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
