Square Enix RPG classic Final Fantasy 3 has hit the iPhone App Store, so you’ll be able to get your turn based combat grove on on the go. Unfortunately, it’s accompanied by an eye watering price tag of £9.49, which is almost four times the price of the iPhone versions of the first two Final Fantasy outings, which we reviewed last year.

The difference is however that this is the remade, spruced up 3D version of the game that was launched to much praise on the Nintendo DS in 2006 – even with the rosiest tinted glasses on, NES graphics did not look like that.

It seems Square Enix is getting serious about iPhone, iPad and Android development with a brand new studio called Hippos Lab which is dedicated entirely to developing games for mobile platforms.

Hippos Lab kicked off on March 7 and has been working on a title since then with a release due soon. Square Enix has had plenty of success in the iTunes App Store with Final Fantasy titles and their real-time strategy title Sliding Heroes. There’s also lots of price cuts on Square Enix titles in the App Store right now which is good news for Final Fantasy fans.
