If there is an important saga in the world of video games and more specifically in the world of JRPG, this is definitely Final Fantasy. The series began in 1987 with the launch of the eponymous title in Japan for the Nintendo Famicom System console or also known in the West as the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and has been reaping success after success ever since.
Final Fantasy was born from the mind of a man, Hironobu Sakaguchi, one of the most important members of Squaresoft (now Square Enix). What they wanted to do with Final Fantasy was to bring all those paper, pencil and board RPGs that were so popular at the time to our television screen. The result, a video game that was a bestseller and that was just the beginning of one of the sagas with the most followers in the world.
The truth is that in the over 30 years that Final Fantasy has been with us, its games have been released on various consoles. Nintendo, PlayStation, PSP, Nintendo DS and many more. With more than 100 games to his credit, it was evident that the call now Square Enix would also take advantage of the popularity of cell phones and is that all of us lovers of these wonderful titles can download some of the best games of this fantasy saga on our smartphones.

Final Fantasy has always been characterized by its art, the work of the famous illustrator Yoshitaka Amano
The game that started it all. The game was called Final Fantasy but how ironically it would turn out to be the start of a saga of hundreds of games in its catalog. Developed to compete against the almighty Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy put us in the shoes of four warriors of light in search of crystals to save the world.
This version for Android leaves behind the modeling of the original version and has been completely redesigned for mobile phones also adding a soundtrack with the current arrangements. The story is nothing to write home about, but just to be the game that started it all, it is worth paying the 8,99 euros that the title costs.
Final fantasy ii
The graphics of the Final Fantasy II version for Android were created for the occasion
Following the success of its predecessor, Squaresoft did not think twice and immediately began work on a sequel to Final Fantasy. This time, the title has a better storyline, steadfast characters (Firion, Maria, Guy and a fourth character who changes based on the story) and a much better built antagonist, Emperor Mateus.
Final Fantasy II for mobile devices it has been completely redesigned with better graphics and, to everyone's surprise, it has a couple of very interesting additions that the original version didn't have.
Final fantasy iii
Final Fantasy III for mobile devices is the version released for the Nintendo DS system and has an improved story and new 3D graphics. Many believe this version breaks the essence of the NES original, but the truth is, it's still just as fun and challenging.
We will manage Luneth, Arc, Refia and Ingus, four orphans who will become the warriors of light and who must stop the plans of the evil Zande, a powerful witch who wants to invoke the Cloud of Darkness and cause havoc in the world.
Final fantasy iv
Final Fantasy IV was the first title in the saga for SNES and for all of this it was a revolution in graphics, plot and sound being able to take advantage of a more powerful machine. This version for Android is the one released for the Nintendo DS system with 3D graphics and although the charm of the original has been lost, the truth is that its history is just as good (it is also true that this version is in the opinion of many, a slightly more complicated than the 2D version).
Cecil is a dark knight in command of the king of Barony who will soon begin to question his monarch. Together with his friend Kain, he will have to find the reason for the hostile attitude of his king, a journey that will make him meet many allies and face terrible enemies.
Final Fantasy IV: The following years
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is a direct continuation of Final Fantasy IV and tells the adventures of Cecil's son. A new danger threatens world peace and old heroes will have to join the new ones to fight it.
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years retains the essence and gameplay of its predecessor adding new mechanics such as moon phases, which cause our magical attacks to cause more or less damage depending on their state.
final fantasy v
Final Fantasy V is one of the most popular games in the series. For its setting, for its characters and for its fun combat system and professions, as well as having a fairly mature plot and a fairly cruel antagonist.
The wind has suddenly stopped and Bartz and his brave chocobo will have to guess why. Behind this premise we find many hours of fun and one of those Final Fantasy that leaves no one indifferent.
For many the best Final Fantasy and no wonder. Despite the fact that the vast majority of people in the West knew about the saga thanks to Final Fantasy VII, its predecessor was a real revolution. Featuring one of the best cast of protagonists seen in an RPG and possibly the best villain in the series, Kefka, Final Fantasy VI is one of those games that every hobbyist should play.
Its Android version isn't the most popular among fans of the saga, but it's still a more than worthy version for enjoy one of the best Final Fantasy ever created.
Final Fantasy VII
The game that changed absolutely everything. The game that allowed thousands and thousands of people to meet Final Fantasy. Because until that moment Squaresoft was a firm ally of Nintendo in Japan, but with the arrival of the PlayStation and its CD ROMs, the Japanese decided it was time to change the scene and enhance their saga also in the West. We all know the result.
Perhaps the most famous Final Fantasy and it is that Cloud, Tifa, Barret or Sephiroth are some of the most loved characters in the world of video games. An epic and grown-up story that made us laugh and cry in equal measure. A timeless work that does not weigh the years and which, among other things, received a spectacular remake for PlayStation 4 this year 2020.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered
Released in 1999, Final Fantasy VIII returns two decades later in the form of one remastered version for mobile phones, greatly improving the graphics of the original game. IS one of the most popular games in the series, which transports us to a world at war after Galbaldia has succumbed to the tyranny of the witch Edea.
Final Fantasy VIII will be on sale at a official price of 22,99 euros for both Android and iOS mobiles. While it doesn't include control via bluetooth controls in its launch version, Square Enix has indicated that the feature will eventually catch up with the game.
Final Fantasy IX
The final touch for one of the best consoles in history, the original PlayStation. Final Fantasy IX is a tribute to all previous titles and a gift for all fans, to the point that for many it is the last great Final Fantasy that has been made to date.
A story about life and death, about friendship, about self-discovery. A story that is unrepeatable for many and that we can relive on our smartphones and tablets as often as we want. And I hope I can completely forget this game to play it again.
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition
Final Fantasy XV is until the arrival of the long-awaited Final Fantasy XVI, the most recent numbered episode. Available on desktop and computer consoles, Final Fantasy XV is not available for mobile phones or Nintendo Switch. On the other hand we have the Pocket Edition, a version with cartoon graphics, less content but with the same topic as the original.
For all of this, if you haven't played Final Fantasy XV or want to try something different, you'll love the Pocket Edition, and despite all the criticism, the story of Noctis and his friends is a great story. The first chapter of the game is completely free, even if you will have to pay for the rest.
Final Fantasy Tactics: WotL
Unlike other Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions differs from the rest in its combat system. There is no turn-based combat, but the battlefield is divided into a board with grids in which we will have to move our units to kill the enemies, all in a very strategic way that will make the fights more complex and longer than usual.
A medieval history full of politics and intrigue, with one of the most interesting stories seen in a Final Fantasy and that is that for less than 14 euros, we can enjoy an authentic jewel on our smartphone.
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius
How could it be otherwise, a franchise of the quality and popularity of Final Fantasy also had to have a gacha-style game in to collect or recruit the most popular heroes and villains of the saga.
However, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is much more than a game with hundreds of microtransactions. It's a surprise title with really charismatic characters and a really well told and told story, unlike a mobile game. The game is totally free, so why not give it a try?
FF BE The war of visions
Following the thread of the previous Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and given the popularity that the smartphone game has achieved, Square Enix has decided to take advantage of this spin-off by publishing a "prequel". This time the fights will not be turn-based but rather we face each other to a very WotL-style tactic.
Also in this case a free game with hundreds of characters and that will keep us entertained for many hours. The problem is that fights can be a bit long and boring in most cases and that for a smartphone game it is not the best. Obviously, downloading it doesn't cost a single euro so it's best to try it out and judge it for yourself.
Final Fantasy: All The Bravest
Without doubt one of the strangest and most controversial games related to Final Fantasy. It is a game focused on massive fights with characters and monsters from the saga and although in theory the game indicates ways, in its execution it transpires everywhere, being a bit boring, bland and repetitive game.
Despite this, if you are a fan of Final Fantasy, try it.
Final Fantasy dimensions
Curiously, it is one of the lesser-known games in the series, but it itself is one of the games that most resembles classic titles like Final Fantasy I and Final Fantasy V. In Final Fantasy Dimensions we will control the warriors of light and dark whose mission will be to destroy an evil power and restore balance to the world.
Profession system, turn-based combat and lots of fun. A title that if it were released on other platforms such as Steam or Nintendo Switch, it would certainly be much more successful than now.
Final Fantasy Dimensions II
Although they share a name, it is not a sequel. Final Fantasy Dimensions II was sadly not a success and all this despite having many elements.
However, unlike the first Dimensions, it's a game with a worse story, much more repetitive and with certain decisions that Final Fantasy lovers did not like at all.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
The most recent game on the list as it came out just a few weeks ago on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms. The original game was released on Nintendo Game Cube and now Square Enix has decided to revamp it with improved graphics and some other surprises.
Although the title can be played individually, the really fun thing is doing it with friends. On purpose, we can try the first three levels for free and, if we like it, buy it at full price.
Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia
If you had a PlayStation Portable or PSP at the time, then surely you know Final Fantasy Dissidia, a fighting game with the heroes and villains of Final Fantasy and which has many fans today. This mobile game goes by the same name, although it gives it a spin.
They are not one-on-one fights, but turn-based fights. The idea is to advance the story and recruit characters. So form our team, upgrade our favorite characters and get better gear as we defeat powerful monsters with a very interesting and tactical Bravery / Vitality system. An essential.
The record holder of Final Fantasy
Final Fantasy Record Keep è nostalgia. A free game with turn-based combat and wonderful pixel art graphics in which we will re-enact the most epic and important battles of the different games of the saga by recruiting new characters and enjoying a truly sublime sounding band.
In our opinion, it is one of the most recommended games on this list and is that besides being a lot of fun, it's completely free (with integrated purchases).
Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire
Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire is anything but a typical Final Fantasy. Taking advantage of its name, we find a somewhat clonic and repetitive resource management game.
Despite all of this, the title continues to release new content so we assume it will have a significant active player base, which honestly no one expected when this game was unveiled.
