Final Fantasy VII launches tonight on iOS By Red Makuzawa on August 19, 2015 at 1:34 PM

Final Fantasy VII will be making its way to iOS devices later tonight, Square Enix has revealed. Announced for the platform this past E3, the mobile version is set to go live at midnight depending on your region.

The game is already out on the New Zealand App Store for $19.99 NZD ($13 USD) and requires around 4GB of free space to download. The iOS version features a virtual controller with analogue or d-pad type options. The opacity of on-screen controls can also be adjusted from the Config Menu. Square Enix has also added in an option to turn off enemy encounters on the world map and a max stats command to instantly boost your characters levels and abilities.


With its unshakeable monopoly over Mako energy production, the evil Shinra Electric Power Company holds tight to the reigns of world power.

One day, a Mako reactor serving the sprawling metropolis of Midgar is attacked and destroyed in a bombing raid by a revolutionary group calling themselves Avalanche.

Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite “Soldier” unit takes part in the raid as a mercenary hired by Avalanche and sets events in motion that will draw him and his friends into an epic struggle for the fate of the planet itself…

Square Enix is also working on a PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy VII based on the PC port, which is scheduled to release this Winter. Check out the launch trailer below.

  • Catoblepas

    It’s awfully quiet here. Where’s all the excitement?!

  • Erren Van Duine

    I’m waiting for the PS4 version myself. I already own the game on PS1/PS3/PC so…

  • Tom

    It’s just the old PS1 game we played on every platform already.

  • Catoblepas

    Some of us have never played it on any other platform than PS1. I think it’s huge deal that you can now play it on your phone.

  • Daniel Masterson

    Man ive been playing FF VII on my xperia play phone for years! Its cool that people will be able to enjoy this on apple phones now.

  • Tom

    That’s true, it’s nice to have a long game like this on the go, especially with all the grinding. But I heard you can turn off random encounters in this version…
