“Final Fantasy VII” will soon be available for download on the iTunes App Store. The mobile version of the legendary Japanese roleplaying game (JRPG) will be a port of the PC version, which is said to be the best-looking version of the game so far. The title is currently available on the New Zealand App Store, and should get a worldwide release later this week.

Despite being an older RPG, “Final Fantasy VII” has some major requirements. According to a report from Eurogamer, mobile users will need an iPhone 5s, a third generation iPad or an iPad Mini 2 to play the game. Playing it on an older iOS device will supposedly have the game running on exceptionally slow speed. The app will also take up a lot of room in the device, needing 4 GB of free space.

No major changes have been made from the PC version of the game, aside from the option to remove random battles, as reported by Kotaku. It is an interesting option to have, though it might make leveling up troublesome if there are no random enemies to train against. While random battles can be turned off, major battles cannot be skipped, as they are a major part of the game’s story.

The game also has multiple control options. Mobile users can use a virtual analogue for the game’s controls and a fixed four-way digital control pad. The only thing unconfirmed so far is if “Final Fantasy VII” will have any type of gamepad support.

It was also confirmed that this version of the game would also be coming to the PlayStation 4, most likely as a digital download. It will also be an enhanced version of the PC game, though it is unclear if it will also give fans the option to turn off random battles.

This enhanced version of “Final Fantasy VII” should give fans something to play with until the remake of the game comes out on PlayStation 4 and other unconfirmed consoles. The remake of “Final Fantasy VII” was revealed during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) that took place in Los Angeles earlier this year.
