While many on Android have figured out how to use ROM’s and emulators to play classic video games on their mobile devices, sometimes it can be a hassle to figure out. This is especially true of systems that utilized memory cards. Square Enix has finally solved that problem for Final Fantasy 7: by releasing the game on the Play Store.
Selling for $15.99, the game is available for devices with Android 4.3 and up. 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 Android version of the game comes with some added features as well, 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.
Hopefully, this will keep Final Fantasy 7 fans distracted a little while longer until the remake releases, which doesn’t look to be anytime soon.
