Final Fantasy V on Smartphones? Nineteen Bucks in Japan.

As first revealed last December, Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy V and "other games" to iOS.

A leaked Japanese magazine scan shows how much Japanese gamers can expect to pay for this: Final Fantasy V, which is listed for iOS and Android, is priced at ¥1,800 or close to US$19. That's a lot!

But, if you are a diehard FFV fan, perhaps you are willing to shell out for the touch-based controls. This is the GameBoy Advance version, and it does feature polished 2D graphics. All that costs nineteen bucks, huh?

Final Fantasy V will be out on smartphones in Japan on March 28.
