Final Fantasy Dimensions is going to be really pricey

Like, really pricey. Like, "Most Expensive Single App I've Ever Seen" pricey. Specifically, Square Enix's old-school-lookin' Final Fantasy Dimensions will run players roughly $29 to buy the whole thing, which is technically a discount, since buying the chapters piecemeal will cost about $34. Thanks, Square Enix!

Mind you I'm all for seeing a more diverse range of prices on mobile devices. Developers and publishers should be free to charge premium prices for premium games, and the mobiles desperately need the kind of deep, expensive-to-make experiences hardcore players can enjoy.

That said, I'm not quite sure if Final Fantasy Dimensions is "the one" to serve as premium gaming's speartip. It's not out yet, but a game setting out to be a price-point pioneer should also be a gameplay and/or technological pioneer, too.

What about you? Planning to get Final Fantasy Dimensions? Or do you think you'd be better served dropping $10 to play Chrono Trigger again?
