The third installment of the Final Fantasy series has recently made its way onto the Google Play Store for Android.
First released in 1990, Final Fantasy III was the first title in the Final Fantasy series to become a million-seller, establishing once and for all that Square Enix’s classic RPG saga was here to stay.
The full 3D remake released in 2006 duplicated the original’s success, selling over a million copies worldwide.
Final Fantasy III was a hallmark of innovation for the entire series, from the job system that lets characters change classes at any time to the ability to summon powerful creatures such as Shiva and Bahamut.
When darkness falls and the land is robbed of light, four youths are chosen by the crystals to set forth on a journey to save the world.
The game features:
- New and improved 3D visuals and story sequences.
- Smooth and intuitive touch-panel control specifically tailored to Square Enix’s smartphone RPGs.
- Quicker browsing through the monster bestiary and other game records.
- New visual designs for the Job Mastery Cards.
Android owners can purchase the title off the Google Play Store today for a price of $15.99. The game will take 172 MB of space and can only be downloaded by WiFi.
Final Fantasy III will also see a release on the PlayStation Portable this September in Japan, and likely worldwide around the same time.
