Yes, according to Square Enix's Facebook page, the iPhone will soon be the latest platform to carry the first two installations in the long-running Final Fantasy franchise. We found this to be very exciting news -- in fact, we're a little surprised Square Enix would simply abandon the announcement in the middle of the night on Facebook, placing it reticently between pictures of our estranged family members and our daily Farmville updates. Oh, well! No harm done.

No details or a release window were provided in the announcement, but a few screens were delivered. Looks like the timeless "Fight, Magic, Defend, Item, Run" command menu has been replaced with a more efficient, illustrated touch menu. You've come a long, long way in 23 years, old friend.

[Thanks, Isaac!]
