Final Fantasy V hits iOS in Japan this month

Square not commenting on western release plans

Final Fantasy V has been scheduled for release on iOS and Android devices in Japan.


According to Famitsu (via Joystiq), the smartphone edition will be a remake based on the Game Boy Advance version of the 1992 title.

Featuring redesigned sprites, it will launch on iOS later in March and on Android this summer priced 1,800 yen (£12 / $19).

Joystiq reports that previous FF games on smartphones have received same-day global releases, but a Square Enix representative wouldn't comment on potential western plans.
