Holy Crap! Square Enix Offers Massive Discounts On A Ton Of iOS Games

J-Pop at its finest.

The famous Square Enix tax, defined as the premium price the Japanese video game company has always charged for its ports of classic and new RPG games on the iTunes App Store, seems to be up–for a while, at least.

We’re talking huge discounts, like recently released Deus Ex: The Fall, originally debuting at seven bucks, now only $0.99, and The World Ends With You (perhaps my favorite Square Enix game of all time) at half the regular $20 price.

How about Final Fantasy I and Final Fantasy II, classics in the role playing game genre, at half off, each going for $3.99 on the App Store? There are eight other Final Fantasy titles on sale, as well. Yeah, I thought you’d like that.

There are a lot of games on sale here, including made-for-iOS game, Chaos Rings Omega, which was originally 12 dollars. It’s now ready for download at a measly $2.99. How can you go wrong?

We’re not sure how long the sale will last, as it’s being called a Holiday Sale, so be sure to head over to the App Store and get some while the getting is good, like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light HD for iPad for a tiny $0.99.

There’s a list of all the Square Enix apps on sale, helpfully sorted into price ranges, right over at AppAddict.net.
