Final Fantasy VII is coming to iOS this year, reports gaming publication IGN. The outlet was in attendance at Square Enix’s E3 press conference earlier today when company executive Shinji Hashimoto announced a mobile port for the title is in the works.

The game will apparently be a port of the original PlayStation title, which debuted in 1997, and not the much-hyped remake that Sony announced at E3 this week. That release is slated to land exclusively, at least at first, on the PS4 at a date not yet known.

Square Enix has been very aggressive with its mobile strategy, releasing a number of ports of popular PC and console games, including at least 6 from its Final Fantasy franchise. The FF titles have done particularly well in the App Store, averaging 4.5 stars.

There’s no word yet on when Final Fantasy VII will land on iOS, or what it’ll be priced at, but current FF games sell for as much as $16.

  • This is great news but they really should issue patches to the other releases they’ve done to fix the cloud saving feature because it doesn’t work since iCloud changed over to allowing additional files. Really annoying.

      I was thinking that too. didn’t know idb got inside scoop when there wasn’t an eta at e3. more likely the ios original will come in the winter. writer probably got it mixed up from too much excitement.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is definitely not coming out this winter, what they did announce was more info was to be released this winter. They just began development on it so it won’t be around for at least a couple of years. Misleading information in the article.
