Square Enix's classic JRPG Final Fantasy VII has finally made the jump to Google's Android platform as of this morning, and is now available on the Play Store.
The hugely successful title will now be playable on many platforms. These include the Playstation, Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, Playstation Vita, PC, iOS or Android. This is the next title to get ported in Square Enix's bid to port all their Final Fantasy titles to just about every relevant platform imaginable. This includes Final Fantasy IX and the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster recently coming to PC this year.
According to Square Enix's press release this morning, "the game has sold more than 11 million copies worldwide across multiple platforms, and continues to receive widespread acclaim from critics and fans around the world."
The new Android version of Final Fantasy VII comes with some extras and bonuses, such as:
● "Simple and comfortable virtual controller design for a clear view of the action" ● "The ability to choose between virtual analog or fixed four-way digital control pad options" ● "Adjustable opacity of on-screen controls through the configuration menu" ● "An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story event battles." ● "A Max Stats command that enables players to become all-powerful in the blink of an eye."
Final Fantasy VII tells the tale of Cloud Strife, a former member of SOLDIER for energy company Shinra and recent Super Smash Bros. inductee that finds himself working with an environmental terrorist cell called AVALANCHE. The group's goal is to destroy all of Shinra's reactors, fearing that the planet may be at stake if they don't. The events that start here then spiral out of control at a breakneck pace as a new, far more sinister threat looms its head toward the planet...
Final Fantasy VII can be purchased on the Play Store for $15.99, the same price as its iOS counterpart.
