This Square Enix classic just showed up on mobile

Back in 2008, Square Enix released a JRPG called The Last Remnant. Its unique battle system could simulate full-scale battlefields in the midst of war, meaning you had to manage your own party while dealing with the morale of friendly forces near you. The game recently came back in the spotlight with a remastered edition, which released on PlayStation 4 in December 2018 and Nintendo Switch in June 2019. It looks, however, like Square Enix isn't done porting The Last Remnant just yet.

Out of nowhere today, the publisher dropped a mobile version of The Last Remnant Remastered on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. The game will cost you $19.99 on either platform, which is more than your run-of-the-mill mobile title. However, you don't have to worry about microtransactions or some sort of exploitative economy with this title. Once you spend the money, The Last Remnant is yours to play.

The Last Remnant initially released only on Xbox 360, and the reviews for it weren't exactly flattering. The updated PC release a few months later didn't exactly fare any better, but the remaster breathed new life into the game, bringing it into modern age. And now, with the mobile release, you can take it with you on the go.

This isn't the first time Square Enix has brought older games to mobile, either. A lot of the original Final Fantasy titles found a new home on iOS and Android, along with some early Dragon Quest games. Even cult classics like Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth and Romancing SaGa made their way to the platform. Most of these have a price tag similar to The Last Remnant's, meaning you'll likely be paying more than your average mobile game for these.

If classic games aren't to your liking, Square Enix also has a slew of games made specifically for mobile, such as Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and Mobius Final Fantasy, both of which follow more traditional mobile business models.
