Think its possible to convince Squaresoft to port "The Classics"?

Square-Enix is already an active contributer to the iphone with their 2 Crystal Chronicles releases.

But I think they are sitting on a goldmine....

Final Fantasy I & II (NES & GBA)
Final Fantasy IV (SNES & GBA)
Final Fantasy V (SNES & GBA)
Final Fantasy VI (SNES & GBA)
Chrono Trigger (SNES & GBA)
Secret of Mana (SNES)
Secret of Evermore (SNES)
EVEN Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (Yes even Mystic Quest)

I believe these would garner great success, I mean RPG's in general dont require "exact" controls (Secret of Mana/Evermore may) so touchscreen wouldn't take away too much from the experience IMO.

Just wanted to throw this out there.

Thoughts?

do I think it's possible. Yes. do i think they will. No. Not until an rpg spends a while at the top in the top 100 will they do it.

They will surely do that in future, maybe in 6-8 months when they can charge 15-20$ for one of that games. I think Zenonia is helping too

Most of these games are ported to every single platform, and 5 times each at that, there are so many ports of these games it is absolutely ridiculous.

Lol I also recently got the DS version, it's pretty fun with two screens.
