Final Fantasy VII News: FF7 released on iOS.
Final Fantasy VII has been released on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. However, Apple still seem to have no general implementation for carrying over saves between devices. I'm not even going to bother with it, because what happens when I change my iPad? The PS Vita is still the optimum device for playing FF7 in bed in my humble opinion.
I'm very pleased with my near-perfect FF7 save, and I can carry it over between different devices in the PlayStation ecosystem. This doesn't seem to be possible on iOS.
The iOS game allows you to turn off random battles. If you've never experienced FF7 before, and you own an iPhone or an iPad or an iPod touch, then the iOS game carries my recommendation.
If you want mods, buy it cheap on PC as a digital download. And yes, don't worry, I'm sure we'll see an Android version at some stage.
Final Fantasy VII News: PS4 Remake Officially Announced, Graphics Demonstrated.
Square Enix has officially announced the Final Fantasy VII remake at Sony's 2015 E3 press conference. The game is due to release on PS4, but there is no indication yet of a release date. It's also still unclear what other platforms may see the remake released, but in any case, it'll be on Playstation 4 first.
There follows the teaser video.
Final Fantasy VII News: PS4 Remake Almost Official!
Reports are coming in that Square Enix is set to finally unveil the much rumoured and anticipated FFVII remake at E3 this week. The game is apparently coming to PS4. No word yet on whether the Xbox One will also see a release.
Given that the original game is still only available officially on Playstation consoles, maybe Square Enix will stick with the PS4. It should also be noted that Sony is a large shareholder in Square Enix, although that hasn't stopped recent Dragon Quest games releasing exclusively on Nintendo portable consoles or Final Fantasy XV coming to Xbox.
Furthermore, it should be noted that the supposed re-release of the original game (not the remake) on PS4 as a digital download still hasn't occurred. Maybe Square Enix is going straight for the throat instead?
