A Quick Update on Final Fantasy Tactics for iOS
Yes, it's another delay, but nothing to lose sleep over.
06.30.11 - 11:54 PM

In May we reported that Square Enix had finally more or less dated the iOS version of the PSP version of the PSone classic, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, scheduled to release between "late June to mid July."

Since we're now right in the middle of that timeframe, we have a new update from the Square Enix DLG Facebook page in which the game's assistant producer Shiina... well:

I'm sorry

...apologizes for the game not being completed yet, and alludes to a release later in July - possibly between July 20-29.

While not exactly much of a delay, Shiina does seem quite sorry for it. He went on to answer some fan questions about the game:

- The slowdown problem plaguing the game has been fixed, which we'll see soon in video form.
- There will be separate iPhone/iPod touch and iPad versions (which is standard fare when Square Enix DOES release an iPad version). The iPad release is expected to arrive a month after the iPhone/iPod touch version.
- The game will run on the iPhone 3GS, but was performing too slow on the iPhone 3G (the 2008 model) to support it.
- There will be no multiplayer capabilities, and so far there's no plans for add-on/DLC content.

Finally, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions will support one of the most important mobile features: Auto-save. For a game that can easily last over 100 hours, it's nice to know a random phone call won't cause you to lose any progress.
