The Final Fantasy IV Android game is now available in the Google Play Store, and it’s not one of the cheaper Android games out there.
Square Enix, the developer of the game, must have been happy with the success of the Final Fantasy III Android game, which must be the reason why it chose to put the same $15.99 price tag on Final Fantasy IV.
The game is hailed by the developers as a “complete 3D remake” of the game, initially launched in 1991, and also features voice acting for important scenes. The game also has selectable levels of difficulty and a new mapping feature, with the dungeons map empty, for added mystery.
If you’ll like the soundtrack of the game, the good news is that now you have a jukebox feature at your disposal, which allows you to listen to the tracks in it whenever you want.
The game runs on Android 2.3.3 and up, so having an older device won’t stand in the way of your playing it. Initial reactions from those having downloaded and played it seem to be good, as the game has averaged a 3.9 score on the Google Play Store (with 22 reviews at the time this article is written). However, there are some reviews complaining about Final Fantasy IV not working on rooted devices, which is something you should consider before shelling out $15.99.
If you want to get an idea about the new (or old) title, Square Enix provides a short trailer video, which you can watch below.
It would seem that those of you missing a classic game have every chance of playing it on Android eventually, as a whole series of such titles have made their way onto our favorite platform lately.
