Legendary Super Famicom RPG 'Tales Of Phantasia' Hits iOS

Tales-of-Phantasia-iOSFollowing Square Enix's lead, Namco Bandai have dived into their back catalogue and immortalised one of their classic role playing adventures on touchscreen devices. Tales of Phantasia has been rereleased on the iOS platform, sporting updated visuals, new controls and added voiceovers and animations.

Although originally a Japanese exclusive release, Tales of Phantasia was eventually translated into English and released on the Game Boy Advance over a decade later in 2006. Despite its lack of English offerings, Tales of Phantasia has since become a cult classic and highly regarded amongst role playing game communities - many of which suggest you should take your time checking out the unofficial fan translation patch.

If you'd prefer to get your hands on this adventure much quicker, rather than patching Super Nintendo ROMs, then you'll be pleased to know that the Apple iOS port of Tales of Phantasia is a free download now available on the iTunes Store. While the controls might not be as tight as the original, and freemium features seem to be present, this is one app download you don't want to miss.
