Final Fantasy IV for iOS to arrive on December 20

updated 08:00 pm EST, Fri December 7, 2012

To celebrate, Square Enix to discount existing iOS FF titles

The well-regarded second (Western) entry in the Final Fantasy game series, Final Fantasy IV, will arrive on the iOS platform on December 20, in time to celebrate the series' 25th anniversary. Creator Square Enix already has a number of Final Fantasy games available for iOS, but Final Fantasy IV is particularly fondly remembered as a landmark of the series that introduced a number of concepts and characters, along with an involved plot and high-quality music score that resonated with players. To celebrate, a rare sale on the other FF titles is currently underway.

As with some of the more recent Final Fantasy titles, the game will be sold for a higher-than-standard price (for a title in this milieu). FF IV will cost $20, lower than Final Fantasy Dimensions (which normally sells for $29 for chapters 1-4) but still considered a premium by iOS game standards. Final Fantasy IV will also be released for Android, but not until sometime in 2013, according to the company. To promote the forthcoming release, Square Enix has launched a sale on its iOS and Android Final Fantasy titles.

The best deal is on Final Fantasy I and II, which are now priced at $4 each (down from $9 normally) on the App Store (Google Play prices have not yet been lowered). The sale began today, and will run for one week until December 14.

Final Fantasy III, offered in separate versions for the iPhone and iPad, is now priced at $9 and $10 respectively (a little less than half off). Final Fantasy Dimensions costs $17, down from its normal $29. Some other Square Enix titles will be on sale between December 12 and January 7, including Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and two of the Victorian Mysteries series, all of which will be reduced from $3 to $1.
