HD version for iPad expected in September
[Updated: now available, new video below] SquareEnix has released Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions to the iPhone, now available on the App Store, along with a new English-language gameplay trailer. The version for the iPhone features upgraded, Retina-quality graphics and speed, an autosaving feature and English voices (in the North American version), but lacks multiplayer, Game Center support or add-on options at present.
The game is based on the original Final Fantasy Tactics game, which was originally released on the Sony Playstation in 1997 and then re-made and released for the Playstation Portable in 2007. A separate iPad HD app will be released in September. The game is supported for the iPhone 3GS and later as well as the fourth-generation iPod Touch, but does not work with the iPhone 3G.
The game will retail for $16 on the App Store, approximately $5 more than the PSP version.
