I never miss an opportunity to cover when my favorite publishers and developers host discounts on their games on the Google Play Store. Today, I found that Square Enix, creator of the popular Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy series’ among others, is hosting an end of the year sale just in time for Christmas and the new year, so I thought I would geek out a bit. Most of these titles are approximately 50% off for a limited time.
I already own several of these titles as I’ve taken advantage of past sales, but if you haven’t and would like to have a few of the best JRPGs on the market on your phone, tablet, or Chromebook, now is your golden chance. There are twenty games you can get your hands on, and yes, that includes Adventures of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and Valkyrie Profile in addition to a few others outside of the core series Square is known for.
I’ll highlight my top three picks before listing out the rest of them below. It’s worth noting that Final Fantasy VIII Remaster and Chrono Trigger (Upgraded version) have gamepad support for Chromebooks, but many people couldn’t get FFVIII to run on their device, so your mileage may vary.
Ultimately, my favorite game on the list is Final Fantasy Tactics. In the past, I’ve discussed how sad it makes me to see Square Enix avoid placing cloud save and gamepad support in the game for so many years despite all of the requests for it. Which of the deals below are your favorite and which did you pick up today? Let me know in the comments, and happy gaming!
