If this is where they put Ito, I'll cry for days.

But I have to admit that it sounds kind of cool.

Interesting. Wish there were some screens. Since it's a mobile game, I hope they port it to Wii, like The After Years, so it can be released here in America.

It means pretty much anything that isn't those types of phones.

That or a iPhone port would be the best. I'd like to play it too, here in Japan. :/

I also hope it's much better than After Years.

SE has been on a trend of porting/moving their bigger mobile games to platforms that are actually relevant here, so it'll probably be localized somehow.

Pricing was ridiculous. All the together, game cost 37 dollars. I hope it wont be as bad for this one (if ported over) but being Square I don't see it happening.

Still, curious to see what this looks like and plays like.

The mobile pricing is similar to After Years, so if it does get ported to any digital distribution platform I expect the pricing to be identical if not higher.

Edit: I missed out another point of note. Battles will support a maximum of 5 party members in this game.

I have to ask, why does Ito always seem to be in the background, if not outright getting the shaft from SE? FFIX and XII are two of my favorites in the franchise, and he directed the only FF to get that 40/40 (which I reckon matters more in the wake of FFXIII) from Famitsu.

Also, hope the game make it over here, somehow. Given the popularity of the iPhone platform worldwide, it makes me wonder why they don't just opt for that, but I figure there must be some business decision that's not obvious (to me, at least).

Ugh, more episodic content. When/if this makes it over here, I really hope it's just one purchase even if it is 30-40.

It's 1/100th of a cent, non-transferable, and not valid with any other offers or promotions. Valid at participating stores only, for a limited time.

I hope the use of ATB and 2D isn't an indicator that this is some retro gimmick game. I love the old FF games a ton, but the battle interfaces are best designed for D-Pads, not the iPhone. There's a lot of potential with the touch interface to do something much better and more streamlined.

edit: Oh wait is this mobile phones and not iPhone (ie no touch controls)? With all of SE's recent iPhone games I just assumed.

This probably won't come to the iPhone, given that it uses the ATB system, the touch only controls would probably render it unplayable.

Then again, they are porting Secret of Mana to the iPhone, so maybe they'll do it anyway :lol

Yeah read too fast there. As well I'm probably guilty of equating all mobile phones to touch screen phones at this point which I probably shouldn't.

I'd pay 20-30 for FFIV: TAY on DS.

Another cellphone game eh ?
Only regret I have with those is that 95% of the time, we don't get them.
TAY was the only exception for now, IIRC (but next we get Re:Coded and Seiken Densetsu 2 Mobile).

FF:4HoL was not a huge success in Japan and it's a "chance" that it got an international release.
I don't think SaGa 2 will get this kind of treatment, sadly :/

I......wasn't thinking clearly. My desire for SaGa 2/7th dragon/tales of graces in English makes me have illogical thoughts.
