The lights are on
After hitting iOS earlier this year, the fifth installment of Square Enix's Final Fantasy series is available on Android devices.
Sporting revamped visuals over the original 16-bit title, Final Fantasy V is notable in the series for its entertaining job system. Your party members level up in various classes – like dragoon, black mage, and monk – but you must switch them frequently in order to optimize your characters' development. Final Fantasy V didn't originally release in North America, though it was brought over in 1999 in an anthology for PlayStation.
You can download the game now right here through Google Play for $16.
Our TakeWhile I have nothing against Final Fantasy V, Square Enix settled on a price tag that seems pretty steep – which seems to be a trend for the company in the mobile arena. You can get the PlayStation FF Anthology version for $10 on the PlayStation Store, which is a more economical way to experience this fun game.

So they take a good older game, make a questionable remake/port, and then release it for far more money than it should cost? Weird. This must work over in Japan.
Missed the mark on this one SquareEnix. What a mistake. This would maybe be worth 4.99, but $16? No thanks.
I hope that no one buys this so they are forced to rethink the value of this product.
Now hurry up and release VI damnit.
ffv on the phone call
Is there really that big of a market for mobile RPGs (mobile in this case being iOS and Android devices)? I don't see why anyone with a desire to play a high-quality RPG wouldn't own a system capable of providing a genuine experience. There are certainly much better methods of playing FFV than on your cellphone.
Good thing I got it for 5 bucks back when SE had in on sale on PSN
