After a series of lengthy delays, the re-release of Final Fantasy Tactics: The War Of The Lions from Square Enix is set to hit the App Store this Thursday, August 4. While its release will be a chance the Americans among us to reminisce, for those of us in Europe, it will be the first time we get the opportunity to experience this PlayStation classic. Square Enix announce the release of Final Fantasy Tactics on its European blog earlier this week, announcing the game’s release on the iPhone this Thursday for Ł10.99 (approx. $ 15.99). While the game will be iPhone-only initially, the blog post promises that the same game will be available on the iPad “later this month.” The game was first released in the U.S. on Sony’s PlayStation way back in 1998, however, it never made it over to Europe — making its iOS release the first time those of us across the Atlantic will enjoy the game. According to Square Enix, its remake features “improved graphics, a significantly improved script translation, beautiful animated cutscenes and extra features.” [via TouchArcade]
