Final Fantasy VII, a video game about an angry man with mommy issues, will come to iPhone and iPad tonight with the next Apple Store update, publisher Square Enix announced today.

This is a port of the PC version, and it should be sufficient distraction for FFVII fans until the remake, which is currently scheduled to come out for PS4 and other platforms in 2073. The iOS version will come with touch controls and — incredibly — an option for turning off random encounters.


Also launching alongside the iOS version of Final Fantasy VII, according to the YouTube description for the launch trailer, is the Final Fantasy Portal app, which is a hub for all things Final Fantasy that even includes a mobile version of the iconic FFVIII card game Triple Triad. I’ll check it out tonight/tomorrow and keep you fine folks updated on how cool it is.
