Last week I wrote about Final Fantasy X and X-2 getting a HD PlayStation 3 reboot and now another title in the series is getting a refresh. This time Final Fantasy V has been revamped and refreshed to work on a touchscreen interface for iOS.

It's no doubt that Final Fantasy is one of the most popular franchises of all time, and FF V was no exception for the SNES. The title sold 2.45 million copies in 1992 in Japan alone. That is massive sales numbers for its time. The new iOS version has been tweaked a little, though.

Final Fantasy V on iOS features graphics that are a little less harsh than the original, and new job classes such as Gladiator, Cannoneer, Oracle and Necromancer. An extra boss will appear which you must slay in order to level up skills. The game will cost you $15.99 in the Apple App Store.
