Square Enix Is Bringing Final Fantasy III To PC

I kind of liked FF3 on the NES. The DS remake has some pretty bad balance issues, though, and that had a lot to do with that the 3D engine could only handle three enemies on the screen at once, so I wish that Square had made a more faithful remake along the lines of FF4 on PSP.

And FF2 on the NES is far worse. Oh wow, you got the Ultima spell! But it's a L1 Ultima spell, just like every other spell when you first learn it, and is presently useless. Have fun casting it 200+ times per character before it out-damages your basic fire spell!


I still prefer it to 3. It easily trounced every other 8-bit RPG story aside from DQ4, and I really didn't mind the development system whatsoever. It was a lot more interesting than grinding job levels.

If FF3 IS coming to the PC, hopefully they might bring some of the other NES-SNES era games in the series (FFI, FFII, FFIV, FFV, FFVI) to the PC too.

How about releasing a Final Fantasy for PC that can't be easily emulated.

Like what? Only one that I can't emulate is one that I'd never play.

1) I said "easily" emulated. The Final Fantasy X Remaster would be nice.

2) Believe it or not, there are more people in the world than you.

That's pretty cool. None of the other versions of this port have texture filtering.
Here's hoping they bring the 3D version of 4 and TAY over as well, and maybe voice TAY or pack them together.

Who seriously cares? You can that game on your ios or android device now. A PC is complete overkill for any FF before X; and then after XII no other FF game is worth porting to any venue.

I got my hopes up, and then I realized it was the Japanese FF3, and not the US/Western release of "Final Fantasy III" which was in fact the sixth game released in Japan....bummer. Still, should be cool.

That is great news, they've finally figured out all the easy money that can be made through porting these games to PC.. hopefully 4-6 are to follow.
