App description: "FINAL FANTASY IV" has finally come to the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad!

The title first debuted in 1991 as the fourth installment in the FINAL FANTASY series. Wildly popular thanks to its unique characters and dramatic storylines, it went on to be ported to many different platforms.

FINAL FANTASY IV was the first title to introduce the Active Time Battle (ATB) system, which has become synonymous with the series. It also saw the introduction of the Augment system, which enabled the transfer of abilities from other characters and gave players an edge in battles.

This iconic title is packed with other amazing features.

- Voice acting for event scenes
Key events unfold with spoken dialogue.

- Deeply emotional portrayals
Characters go through visibly apparent emotional changes.

- A brand new mapping feature
Players start with a completely blank dungeons map, adding an element of the unknown to the mix!

- Jukebox
Players can listen to the game's music anytime they want.


Story

Stripped of his command after questioning the king, the dark knight Cecil, captain of the Red Wings airship brigade, is dispatched to the distant Valley of Mist together with Kain, his sworn comrade and commander of the Dragoons.

And so begins the epic never-before-told tale of the legendary Crystals.

Epic, epic, best FF release on iOS so far, I am still excited like a kid at X-mas.

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.

Man these past few weeks have been dreadful waiting for this to come out. ARGH I can't wait all the way till tonight to get this. I'm so impatient!

I'm happy they adjusted the difficulty since I heard it was a bit difficult but anyhow, I'm buying it immediately. This is my Christmas present from SQE And five people in a party sounds kinda tedious... hm

Btw looks like it's optimized for the iphone5 screen but it'll just have black bars?

Now this sounds awesome. I wonder if some original players can confirm this / compare it.

Well it says optimized on the official apple requirements but I guess those things can say anything. I assumed optimized always meant screen size.

I've read on a japanese page that it supports the iPhone 5 wide screen, but don't ask me on which site... think it was Kotaku. But we're talking about S/E here and a treasured brand. Since they revamped the gfx, not including the iP5 screen would have been pretty stupid.

I guess SE feels the need to dumb down the game for "casual" iOS gamers.

*sigh*

I was under the impression that the "brand new 3D graphics" referred to the fact that SE had to redo the models and textures to fit iPhone/iPad resolution. I'm not expecting any major changes.

Dimensions just got an update for widescreen so it would make sense for this to have it too.
