Link: Coming Soon - Final Fantasy Dimensions

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on August 24th, 2012

Today, Square Enix announced the release date for it's upcoming iOS and Android game, Final Fantasy Dimensions.

We've heard your cries for more information on FINAL FANTASY DIMENSIONS and we're here to deliver. We're pleased to announce that FINAL FANTASY DIMENSIONS will get a simultaneous worldwide release of 31st August 2012 on iOS and Android. To top it off we've got 9 brand new screenshots for you to enjoy.

Interestingly, the game will be released in episodes.

FINAL FANTASY DIMENSIONS is delivered as episodic content. The prologue will be free for everyone to enjoy. You can purchase the first chapter for $2.99 / £1.99 / €2.39, chapters 2-4 for $9.99 / £6.99 / €7.99 each, or the entire collection of chapters for $28.99 / £19.99 / €22.99.

$30 for an iPhone game, even a Final Fantasy one, seems a bit much. Square Enix knows, however, that we'll gladly pay $30 if we can spend it in $3 to $7 chunks. What do you think? Will you splurge on the whole thing, grab the $10 pack, or just take it one episode at a time?

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Learning a new language is challenging work. Fortunately technology is around to make things a little simpler courtesy of apps like Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary.

The app is aimed at those learning English as a foreign language, promising cutting edge features such as full sentence pronunciations and thousands of detailed graphics that aim to bring words and definitions to life.

In all, there are 58,000 example sentences that can be listened to with the option for either British or American voices. 183,500 words, phrases and meanings are explained clearly with an integrated thesaurus providing plenty of synonyms and lists of collocations. As the dictionary will explain, collocations are words that go together. See? Even as a first language, there's a whole bunch of words that could be learned through this app!

Priced at $28.99, Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary is on the heftier side of pricing but it's for a good reason. It's a comprehensive app and one that a book of the same depth would be considerably more expensive. For those learning English as a foreign language, this is an invaluable resource.
