‘Final Fantasy VII’ Latest News, Release Date & Update: Android Version Finally Available at Google Play Store
iOS gamers no longer hold the bragging rights as far as playing “Final Fantasy VII” on the device is concerned. An Android version has finally come out and is already available at the Google Play Store.
“Final Fantasy VII” is not a new game but is considered one of the iconic games ever played. FF VII was originally intended for the Nintendo 64 but ended up launching on the Sony PS.
The iOS version came out last year and there was also a version of “FF VII” ported to the PlayStation 4 last December. The game also debuted on Steam back in 2013.
Released way back in 1997, the game is now available for just $16 and will require at least 2 GB of space and 4 GB free for it to be installed per IGN. The post also warned users to be ready for possible crashes and loss of data since there was a bug lurking. Devices will also need to be on Android 4.13 at the least to get the game to work.
Options for Android version
Final Fantasy VII will include a special option for gamers. This involves an option which would allow players to turn off enemy encounters on the world and area maps. Players can also take advantage of the fact that they can max out their stats. according to Siliconera.
Being a classic, the pricing standpoint is a concern. With a high price, there are some who may opt to pass on Final Fantasy VII for Android unless they are the avid fans who miss the old classic role playing game.
However, Square Enix bats that they never made games cheap. They reason that FF VII is a full-pledged game compared to other ones which are programmed to simply pass the time.
That statement via Ubergizmo is likely to be up for debate. Some gamers may take Square Enix up on their offer despite the hefty $16 price tag. A remake for Final Fantasy is reportedly in the works though there is no word on when it would be released.
