Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is now out in Japan for Android via SE's Square Enix Market, which most likely means it'll be released worldwide soon on Google Play. The Android version has enhanced graphics as shown here:

Characters such as Ramza appear to have higher resolution sprites too:

The report on Famitsu's website also mentions a complete overhaul of the game's interface that allows full customization and makes it more intuitive for users by adding standard multi-touch interface features, as well as sped up drawing speed (I'm guessing this means no more slowdowns? It might also be the hinted at via the game's description on iOS' battle fast forward option).
An update for the iPhone/iPod and iPad versions with all these upgrades is supposed to hit soon, and both of the game's versions on iOS are getting price cuts which are already effective in the Japanese App Store, but not yet elsewhere.
Finally, Drakerider and Chaos Rings II are coming to Square Enix Market on 2/21 and 2/28 respectively, which means they'll probably be released soon on Google Play.

Yeah, Square?

After releasing these horseshit ports of Final Fantasy Tactics on the PSP and iOS, I'll never buy any ports from this company again.

Final Fantasy Tactics is very high on my 'best games ever' list - but I can't play these shitty ports that have terrible framerate, lag on almost every action, have horrible fonts and control issues, etc.

Squaresoft once baked this really nice cake and now Square-Enix is decorating it with dogshit. Never again.

Well, the update that the iOS versions are getting is supposed to fix some of those issues.


Will it be overpriced like all Square games on android?
Probably.

Nobody gives a shit about the graphics. We give a shit about the slowdown.

It's embarrassing that they've released so many versions of this game and it's been a sluggish mess every time.

Thank god for fan-made fix, but it's unfortunate you need a 'modded' PSP to use it, would love to play with the fix on Vita or PS3 too..

This is true. I will buy this day one if they fix the slowdown. The good news is that, since Android is so customizable, the people over at FFHacktics will probably have it fixed in a day if it still exists.
