E3 '10: Final Fantasy Tactics Coming To iPhone

Are you one of the two people that never owned a PlayStation, PS2, PSP or PS3? In that case, you better listen up, as one of the best PlayStation titles from SquareEnix is headed to one more platform: the iPhone. No, it's not the underrated Vagrant Story, but rather 1997 strategy RPG classic, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War Of The Lions!

Out of all the game's for SquareEnix to shamelessly port (let's call a spade a spade here, folks), we might not have "needed" this one as much as a few other titles I can think of off hand, but I can't deny that having this classic title within arms reach at all times is quite tempting. Yes, I already one my PS1 and PSP copies, but there's something about this game that will always remain special to me. It wasn't the very first SRPG that I had played and not the one that I've played the longest (or even completed for that matter), but playing the title, no matter the platform, has always been a treat. And speaking of treats, how nice is it that the "new" translation and artwork used in the PSP version will be the one featured here? I bet this will look really nice on an iPad. I'm sure there are people that prefer the PlayStation 1 original, but those people are just plain crazy so we can ignore them. While we don't know a price yet, SquareEnix was able to announce that the title will appear on the iTunes Store on September 15th this year.

My only hope is that it won't be plagued with the horrible lag of the PSP version.

Seriously, if the pirates can emulate the original on the PSP better than SqEx can port it, all I can say is *facepalm.jpg*

This is Awesome ;) I'm a huge fan of Final Fantasy Tactics. I have been considering buying a PSP just for the port, now i don't have to :)

If they make this version Lag Free I may indeed pick it up. I had a blast with the PSP version, but can never replay it due to how freaking sluggish it was.

This is great for the iphone owners. What annoys me is that even though Sqeenix made FFT available for download on PSN quite some time ago...it's just a port of the original version of the game, with its legendary bad translation.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
