    For all Final Fantasy fans out there, new reports by Famitsu claim that the popular RPGs fifth episode is set to hit iOS and Android devices in Japan by the end of March this year. This means that Final Fantasy V will most likely be released in the United States shortly after following the release in Japan.

    Although highly anticipated, the news should not come as a surprise for anyone since the previous four versions of Final Fantasy have already been on the iOS platform. But it does not mean you cant still be excited for the release right?

    Final Fantasy V was originally launched in Japan in 1992 for the SNES. Not until 1999 did it land in the U.S as a part of the Final Fantasy collection for the PlayStation and later ported to the Gameboy Advance.

    It has yet to be announced which version of the game will hit iOS devices, but it sure does sound expensive from the announcement so far. According to Joystiq, the same is said to be priced around 1,800- which converts to about $19 US. Those of you who are interested in the game can see a video of below:



    Are you excited for the release?

    for me, I am waiting for VI, though FF7 is the most famous FF, the VI was considered to be the best FF of all time

    They know their market clamors for a rerelease of VII (and the niche people clamor for VI) on various platforms and yet they slowly get around to it. Rather upsetting as the company is tanking and in need of some positive momentum. That said, any FF release is a good thing in my book.

    It's only illegal if you don't own the game and if you downloaded the bios. If you extracted the bios from your own playstation then it's not illegal
    The hardest part is getting the bios but once you have it playing Psx games on android really isn't that hard.

    Additionally, FFIV has one of the deeper storylines, weaving a fantastic story of a fall and redemption of the primary hero. I have to say that the actual story was "better" in FFIV over FFVI, but that could very well be that I was 11 when it was released and it was arguably one of the deepest and most elaborate stories up to that point.

    For me FFVi was all about the world they created. Almost steam punk in a way, or I guess magi-punk if that's a thing. That plus the pretty awesome gameplay.

    I've had peripheral neuropathy since I was younger, which made Saban's blitzes frustrating at times (I was also TERRIBLE at fighting games) -- I do agree about the world they created, as well as the term magi-punk. I totally want to high-five you for coming up with that right now.
