The lights are on
Final Fantasy V, one of the most highly regarded entries in the Final Fantasy franchise, is heading to Japanese iOS and Android devices.
The game will be available in Japan for iOS devices at the end of the month, with an Android version planned for the Summer. The mobile version will be based on the Game Boy Advance version of the game with somewhat updated graphics as seen above.
There is no news for a North American release yet, but hopefully we'll get an announcement soon. We need a good mobile Final Fantasy after Square Enix's last release.

I won't buy this game it's going to be way overpriced and not to mention it's just a battery drain I will stick with my Vita and 3DS
Now they just need to fix the PSN version so it works with Vita.
This is great... but I'd rather have the PSN version work with my Vita! Rabble rabble rabble.
Awesome! I haven't got to play this one yet! I hope it comes out over here!!!! .....And that I get something to play it on.....
Man, Square Enix really enjoys making money off of nostalgia.
Cools, I don't mind re-releases of FF games but I would like to see SE do other games... one like Nier! loved that game! MAKE NIER 2! With better graphics and the works!
My first FF game. I still have the GBA version though, so no need for this.
This is my favorite Final Fantasy game ever with 9 coming in at a close second. The Job system, the characters (Galuf in particular), and the combat were all amazing.
Huh, I am liking what I'm seeing thus far with this image of the updated graphics. Haven't played V in a long while now and to play it on the go with better graphics will be a great treat.
Every time I go to the app store and read reviews on any of the Final Fantasy games I read people complaining about stability issues and loosing data. I don't know how often this happens but I refuse to play unstable games. I could potentially loose 60+ hours of gaming because developers don't properly test "app games" like they do console/portable releases.
Yay Android love! :D
It will also be ridiculously expensive
