Square Enix previously offered a select number of Final Fantasy titles for Japanese mobile phones that supported the i-mode and EZweb distribution services before the they were removed in March of 2018. Among these were two new releases, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (a sequel to the original Final Fantasy IV) and Final Fantasy Dimensions (or Final Fantasy Legends as it is known in Japan), which eventually made their way to the West in the form of WiiWare and iOS/Android titles, respectively. Nonetheless, I have longed to play these titles in their original forms but have yet to determine whether or not the games are still playable at this point. So my question is, does anyone know whether the titles on phones that had downloaded them previously before the service shut are still functional? If they are, that would imply that internet connectivity is likely not necessary to play them once downloaded and that importing a phone containing them would be possible (assuming one could be found).
