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.

@TinyKitty: Definitely get it. I'll go as far as to say it's the BEST game of it's kind. No other game compares. It has the best soundtrack, best depth, best storyline, best art (now even better) and best gameplay out of all in the genre. Only issues you may have are with difficulty. It has a steep curve at the beginning but you'll get the hang of it after a few hours while enjoying yourself. Let us know what you think!


The update is gorgeous! Though the impact is harder to see on the iphone/ipod since its much smaller. However if you screen cap it you can easily see the changes. So in a way I didn't notice it too much until having the old and new side by side. Everything also runs very smoothly (not sure if that's different than the last version since I had no problem with that one). Here are some screen shots! I made sure to take screen caps before I updated. Worth the update! It looks like even the backgrounds are improved as well.

Seems like they just throw some kind of filter. Not like they redrawn the graphics.

Well if you played or bought this before you will definitely notice a very big change in graphics..But the most important aspect of the update was the UI change..It's very touch friendly now which is a game changer and made the gameplay smother than before..

Characters at 200% zoom before the update (old photo found on the net, 'cause I just deleted my old version, but that's pretty much what they looked like when I compared them on my actual device):

They've definitely been redrawn with additional detail; they haven't simply had a filter applied to them. Look at the hair of the character on the first column, second row of Lawliet's screenshots, for example, or the main character's sleeves in my screenshots.

Can anyone with the update confirm weather or not this update addresses the crashing issue?

Thanks! I got a little too excited and ended up posting on pretty much every thread available. My bad. It's kind of my favorite game of all time and I have been waiting for them to fix this before buying! It's. About. To go. Down.
