Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Final Fantasy III
Another Final Fantasy has made its way to PC today with the release of Final Fantasy III on Steam. Originally released in Japan in 1990, Final Fantasy III not only introduced the popular job system but was also the first in the series to sell over a million copies. The PC version features Steam Trading Cards and Achievements, new graphics for the Job Mastery Cards, 3D visuals, an improved bestiary, and updated story sequences.
Final Fantasy III is now available for the Ouya. The new Android-powered console is being shipped out to the many Kickstarter backers but will be available in stores to the general public this June for $99.99. For those who get their systems early, Square Enix has announced that a new version of Final Fantasy III is on offer with several console-specific updates, including improved graphics and optimized controls. For those on the fence, a demo is also available.
The Android-based OUYA console, the recent Kickstarter campaign flavor of the month, has gained some notable support today from none other than Square Enix. The studio has announced their plans to release Final Fantasy III when the console launches, which is currently scheduled for next March. More precisely, the OUYA version will be the 2006 enhanced re-release of the 1990 original, but optimized for the new system. A playable demo is also planned.
