Square Enix is re-releasing FINAL FANTASY I and FINAL FANTASY II for the iPhone. The RPG’s that once required blocky cartridges and a big, gray Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES as we liked to call it back then) can now be played on the same gadget you use to text your friends and prank call your principal with.
Check out the trailer here…, at Kotaku.com
Maybe this is speaking from a novice’s perspective, but I always think it’s funny that a franchise called FINAL Fantasy has been going on for 23 years and over thirteen installments - - “Seriously guys, we mean it this time. This is the Final fantasy.” I suppose it’s like when Kiss goes on one farewell tour after another for more than ten years.
GIA EDIT: We just snatched up the trailer. Enjoy!
You like what you see in the trailer, Anime Vice community? Do you feel nostalgic? Curious? Or do those old school 2D sprites fail to impress you?
