Classic RPG Final Fantasy VII lands on Android mobile devices0 Comments
When Final Fantasy VII launched in America in September of 1997, it was heralded as a technical achievement in console gaming. Now, nearly 19 years later, the game has been optimized to run on Android mobile devices. Released just yesterday, the newest version of the game sports a relatively-low $16 price tag and contains features designed to make the title a quicker, friendlier experience.
An immediate word of warning is in order: the Android version of the game currently seems to be suffering from a bug that can freeze the game's vehicles, preventing them from moving. The developers are encouraging players to make use of several save files, and revert to previous files if the bug crops up. There's no word yet on whether or not Square Enix is working on the problem.
With that aside, interested players should be also be aware that the new version of the game requires a device running Android 4.3 or higher and weighs in at over 4 GB, which is at least 1 GB larger than the PlayStation original. Granted, that extra data may be tied together with the game's added features, which include fully-3D battle stages, a toggle for enemy encounters, a virtual controller, and a Max Stats command that seems to make the player virtually invincible.
It might not be the most accurate version of the game, but there's no doubt that many gamers will flock to the mobile edition of the title. It may also serve as an excellent way to catch up on the story before Square release the Final Fantasy VII PS4 remake, whenever that may be.
