Back in December, RPG specialist Square Enix released a brand-new trailer for the iPhone and iPad editions of Final Fantasy IV.

This trailer featured a cryptic message about a future iOS port of acclaimed SNES title Final Fantasy V.

According to a report on website FF-Reunion, Final Fantasy V will be available to download from the Japanese App Store before the end of this month.

To no one's great surprise, this smartphone port will boast improved visuals and touchscreen-optimised controls.

Final Fantasy V (complete with new FMV sequences) was ported to Sony's PlayStation in 1998, and subsequently re-released (with four new jobs) on Nintendo's Game Boy Advance.

We're not sure which version of Square Enix's excellent RPG will make it onto iOS, but we hope it contains all of the above features.

We'll let you know when we have a UK and US release date for Final Fantasy V.
