Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy III is now available for the new Ouya game console. The Ouya release features several updates specifically developed for the console, including improved visuals and optimized control systems. A free-to-try demo version of the game will also be available at launch.
Final Fantasy III was first released in 1990 and was the first Final Fantasy title to sell one million copies. Final Fantasy III was a hallmark of innovation for the series, introducing a job system where you can change at anytime and summon monsters such as Shiva and Bahamut.
Ouya was created in 2012 by Julie Uhrman, a video game industry veteran who saw an opportunity to open up the last closed game platform — the TV. Uhrman and an initial team of game developers and advisors brought the concept to life, with the help of Yves Behar. Ouya is a new kind of game console that is $99.99 and where all games are free to try. Ouya will ship to early backers on March 28, 2013, followed by a full retail launch in June and available at Amazon, Best Buy, GAME, GameStop and Target.
