LOS ANGELES (22nd August, 2014) – SQUARE ENIX Ltd., today announced the release of FINAL FANTASY® V for Kindle Fire and Android devices, now available to download from the Amazon Appstore.

FINAL FANTASY V first debuted in 1992 as the fifth installment in the iconic FINAL FANTASY series. This wildly popular RPG was the first in the franchise’s history to sell over two million copies, and has been reworked to allow players to relive and enjoy the game on touch-screen devices.

This groundbreaking title allowed players to customize their characters with an unprecedented degree of freedom thanks to a new job and ability system which was previously added to the Gameboy Advance version. The title also saw the introduction of more detailed and expressive 2D character models, which helped further fuel the player's imagination, making the story even more immersive and fun to play.

Previously available from the App Store and Google Play Store, FINAL FANTASY V is available for download from the Amazon Appstore today, at the price of $15.99.
