  • Final Fantasy VII Now Playable On iPhones Surprise — today is the day the world’s most popular entry in the Final Fantasy series gets a smartphone port.
    Fundamentally, it’s the PC version of the game running on iOS hardware. It should mostly be the same experience, including the really lo-res backgrounds (because Square did not hold onto the original assets for the rendered graphics).
