Nothing like a fine piece of classic RPG-related news to start off your Thursday morning, right? Well hold on to your chairs and your HP meters for this one: Final Fantasy VI will be heading to iOS and Android smartphone devices at some point this winter!

Square Enix director and producer Takashi Tokita revealed the exciting news to Kotaku this morning, along with an assurance that the game will also receive a few enhancements along the way to your mobile device, similar to the approach that was taken with the well-received Final Fantasy V. More than just a mere port with touchscreen controls, the upcoming Final Fantasy VI on mobile is expected to come with sharper visuals, and a slight tweaking to the overall battle system in an effort to eliminate some of the past required grinding.

And as if already reading everyone’s minds who would be reading this news, Tokita was also forthcoming to share his thoughts about the potential mobile release of the colossal fan-favorite Final Fantasy VII: “If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII.” Let me hear a resounding, yes please!
