Tales of Phantasia, Namco Bandai's original game for their Tales role-playing game series, is available for free on iOS devices., but only in the States. New Zealand might not see Tales due to regional restrictions, ones we hope don't stop Tales of Phantasia coming to the Uk App Store.
The granddaddy RPG was released in 1995 for Super Famicomand even then regional differences caused some to be behind the times as an official English launch on Game Boy Advance came a full 11 years later in 2006. It has also seen Japan-only releases on Sony's PlayStation and PlayStation Portable platforms.
Although the iOS version is free, it is supported by in-app purchases (IAPs), and early reviews both on the iTunes Store and from critics have questioned their implementation, suggesting that the difficulty has been increased to encourage spending. Some Polish has been injected into this modern day remake with the mobile version including voice overs, achievements, leaderboards, and improved animations.
