Square Enix has slashed the price of PSP port Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions on iOS and updated the game with new art and iCloud support.

In version 1.2 of this tactical RPG, then, Squeenix has redrawn all of the unit graphics in high resolution.

Plus, the studio has optimised the game's drawing processes for mobile devices.

"Say goodbye to choppy motion and crash bugs," Square Enix states in the game's App Store description, "and play with the quickest, smoothest abilities effects and animations to date".

Square Enix has also added iCloud support to Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions, meaning you can now sync your save data between multiple iOS devices. So, you can kick off the Ivalice saga on your iPhone, and finish it on your iPad.

To celebrate this major update, Square Enix has cut the app's price from £11 / $16 to £5.49 / $7.99 on iPhone, and from £13 / $18 to £5.99 / $8.99 on iPad.

In our original review of Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions, we gave it a Bronze Award and dubbed it "a huge, immersive experience that suffers because it doesn't bend to the whims and needs of the hardware it's being played on."

How in the heck can you iCloud sync your saved game file on the iPhone version with your HD iPad version?! I thought iCloud syncs would only work between devices using the SAME app. So, I would imagine you'd have to have the iPhone version on both devices, right?

Despite already owning the iPhone and PSP versions, I now find myself bizarrely tempted to grab FFT for my iPad too! I suppose bagging the hat-trick would be pretty cool.

Now, if only Squeenix would hear our cries and follow suit with a similar HD makeover for the iOS edition of Chrono Trigger. Now *that* would be greatly appreciated. As would native iPad support. While I highly doubt it'd ever match the quality of the fabulous SNES and DS editions anyway, their iOS port of The World Ends With You offers a glimmer of hope...

Nice but not enough to warrant a RE-purchase from vets like me - old PSX days.
