Square Enix Brings Games to the iPadA wild iPad approaches!05.28.10 - 11:14 PM
Today, Square Enix released two new iPad apps to celebrate the release of Apple's iPad in Japan. The first, a re-release of the Final Fantasy XIII Larger-than-Life Gallery
, originally for iPhone, is a digital photo album and calendar that features a variety of character art from the game. The increased screen size and resolution of the iPad works well with the high-resolution art included in the app, and the updated version contains new art including one 3D image (3D glasses not included). The second new app is called Chocobo Panic
. Up to two players can compete to see who can catch more chocobos in the allotted time. The two apps are currently available on the iTunes App Store for $5.99 and $3.99.
Square Enix also announced that it will bring more games to the iPad in the future, starting with ports of their popular iPhone games Crystal Defenders, a Final Fantasy Tactics themed tower defense game; and Chaos Rings, the critically acclaimed iPhone RPG from Wild Arms developers Media.Vision. Release dates and pricing have not yet been revealed, but expect more information soon.
