Square Enix announced previously this year at E3 that it would restore its cherished Last Fantasy VII title as a remake for consoles, PC, and iOS. Today, the iPhone and iPad version of the game officially arrives on the App Store.

While we discovered formerly that Square Enix would not be utilizing its Luminous Engine for the remake, the video game’s iTunes page does confirm that the iOS title is a direct “port based upon Final Dream VII for PC” and arrives without any modifications to the initial game’s storyline. It’s also made some improvements specially for the iPhone and iPad variation…

When it comes to enhancements made for the iOS version of the game, users can change between a “virtual analogue” and a “fixed 4-way digital control pad” for onscreen controls with adjustable opacity. In addition, Square keeps in mind that “the iOS edition likewise consists of a choice to turn enemy encounters off on the world and area maps (will not skip occasion fights) and a Max Duplicates command to end up being all-powerful in the blink of an eye.”
Is there support for iOS controllers you ask? No one knows because Apple still doesn’t list or categorize video games by controller assistance and Square didn’t discuss controllers. But I’m not grumbling about controller support any longer so we’ll need to pay the $ 19.99 to learn.

To get a game of this quality up and running on iOS suggests you’ll require around 4GB of free space and either an iPhone 5S or later on, a 3rd-gen iPad or later on, or an iPad mini 2 or later on running iOS 8. If your device is running an earlier version of iOS, or if you’re utilizing an iPod touch older than the recently upgrade design, you can anticipate quite a slow and choppy experience. But there is naturally a reason that the original game offered over 11 million copies across platforms, and it’s great to know that Square Enix attempted to bring the complete experience over to mobile phones, in spite of the minimum requirements potentially keeping some users from totally delighting in the classic RPG.
