Here's another installment on the hopefully neverending saga of bringing beloved titles to our favorite mobile platform. Square Enix has announced that the sequel to Final Fantasy IV will be coming to Android and iOS devices this winter.
Fortunately for fans of the games and the entire franchise, there seems to really be no end to the ironically named Final Fantasy titles. But this time, Square Enix isn't churning out a new game but is instead bringing another of its classic titles to Android for the enjoyment of all.
Kamcord has had in-game recording tools available for iOS developers, and while they have been working towards and Android release, it wasn't until today that the good news arrived. Simply put, Kamcord has announced a new Android SDK that will allow Android developers to add similar options in their games. This apparently, has been a work in progress with some of the effort going into making sure they were able to allow for recording without any performance hits.
Responding to the flak that it is receiving over its developer program, OUYA is announcing some changes to the policies and requirements to be eligible for the fund-matching benefits. This is to ensure that previous scandals that have occurred will no longer be possible, giving a fair chance to everyone interested in joining.
Despite having a promised release date of September 19th, it looks like Rovio has released Angry Birds Star Wars II for Android a day ahead of schedule. Rovio had said they would be releasing Angry Birds Star Wars II for free and for $0.99. The free version would be ad-supported and the paid version would be ad-free. With that in mind, at this time it looks like only the paid version is available.
Coming out of the Tokyo Game Show, Madfinger Games has confirmed the release date for Dead Trigger 2. This of course, is the long-awaited follow-up to Dead Trigger which was released back in the summer of 2012. But perhaps more important here, the game will be available beginning on October 23rd. Madfinger Games will have the game available by way of the Play Store and it will be free-to-play.
Square Enix, makers of the popular Final Fantasy JRPG series, has just announced that it will be bringing yet another game from that line to mobile devices. Surprisingly, the game developer will be making Final Fantasy Agito available for free on Android and iOS.
There will probably be much rejoicing, scampering, and loss of productivity as the coveted Android version of Plants vs Zombies 2 finally appears. The catch, however, is that it officially only available in China through Baidu's AppSearch Android market.
OUYA first announced the "Free the Games" fund back in mid-July. The program was created to entice developers to bring games to the OUYA platform and later launched in August. The idea seemed simple enough, OUYA would match funds (up to $1 million) for game developers that launched and successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign with at least $50,000 in funding. Anyway, it seems a few of those participating in the fund were not playing entirely by the rules.
It's been almost a month now and we're still waiting for the highly popular Plants vs Zombies 2 to hit our Android devices with no end in sight. It seems, though, that those in China will have their pea-shooting zombie-killing cravings satiated as the game is rumored to be launching in Chinese markets very soon.
