I'm not quite sure how I feel about the look of Final Fantasy V on iOS. I mean, original character designer Kazuko Shibuya returned to polish up her original designs and make everything all pretty for the game's mobile debut, so in a way this is true to her vision.
On the other hand, it looks like the entire game was squeezed through an emulator filter. Hmm.
I guess I'll just have to get used to it. Besides, I'll be too busy bitching about the price to worry about the visuals. Final Fantasy V is available right now on the Australian iTunes App Store for $16.99, the same price as the previous instalment.
It's still a fair price, I suppose. We're getting the original game plus the extra dungeon and four extra job classes from the 2006 Game Boy Advance release, and it's a universal app, so we don't have to buy it twice to play on the iPhone and iPad.
And, hey, Square Enix spent a lot of money to make it look like this.
