UPDATE: So, Square Enix revealed the pricing structure for its latest mobile outing. It’ll be split up into chapters, similar to Back to the Future from Telltale. The Prologue will be free and Chapter 1 will be $2.99. However, Chapters 2-4 will cost $9.99. If you want to buy the whole collection, that’ll set you back $28.99! This makes Final Fantasy Dimensions the most expensive game Square Enix has made for mobile devices.

I mean, yikes! I hope the iOS port of The World Ends With You isn’t that expensive.

—————-

Square Enix has revealed the international release date of Final Fantasy Dimensions on iOS and Android devices. For those not in the know, Final Fantasy Dimensions is a throwback to its older Final Fantasy titles. Specifically, SNES titles like Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy VI (II and III in North America). The game will have an Active Time Battle system and a Job Change System, similar to Final Fantasy V.

Final Fantasy Dimensions will be available on iOS and Android starting August 31st. Unfortunately, we have no word on what the price is at this time, so stay tuned for more info as it comes.

  • I hope it gets released on the 3DS eShop or something at some point.

      I’d certainly prefer this on the 3DS, or Vita, but I’m guessing the best hope would be the Ouya.

    •  It would certainly be nice to see this on the 3DS, but that they aren’t announcing it for the 3DS leads me to believe that it’s an experimental project, or a throwaway project using the FF name to sell.  If there’s enough demand, they may do for FF Dimensions what they did for Kingdom Hearts Coded, and Re:Make it for the 3DS from the ground up.

       it definitely looks like they used assets from FFIV: The after years. So I’m thinking they’re trying to do what they did in the old GB days and just tack the FF name on something that wouldn’t sell without it.

  • Tim Valenta

    They like to price their iOS titles at about $15, including Chaos Rings, the Chrono Trigger port, and the original Final Fantasy titles they ported.  I don’t think they’re comfortable with pricing it at anything less, but it’s a bummer, because those prices aren’t very modern for most mobile games. (Plus they tend to release non-universal apps—$15 for the iPhone/iPod version and $15 more for the iPad one.)

    I’m definitely excited though to try it out. I’ve got a gift card with app store money on it, so I’ll probably pick this up when I get the opportunity 🙂

  • MegaX50

     I think Squeenix (the name I give them when I’m annoyed, because it annoys them) is really stretching too far with these. I mean FF Dimensions is going to be about 30 bucks total, for an episodic game, and then TWEWY, a port of a game that came out over 4 years ago, for 20. Not even a new game, a Port. It seems they’re setting themselves up to Fail by just banking that their fans will pay whatever price they set.

  • Tim Valenta

    Man oh man.  These guys can’t price a game to save their lives.  This is really off-putting.  I was happy to see the $2.99 tag, and then was moderately okay with the $9.99… but seriously, $30 for the game?  WTH?  Ignoring the other Square titles in the iOS app store, the highest obvious price is $7, with the norm being $0.99 + possible DLC.

    These guys must be hurting like crazy to be releasing every game they’ve ever made at $15+.  The World Ends came out at $18.  Bite me.  There’s hardly any chance at all that I’m buying these titles.  I’ve got better things to do, for far less money.

  • Oh look, it didn’t go worldwide on Android after all. 🙁
