Final Fantasy 3, originally released on the Nintendo DS has made it's way to Android today. For the price of $15.99 Android users can now experience a game that was released earlier this year only in Japan. Square Enix has a track record thus far for releasing ports and higher end (and higher priced) games on iOS, but until today hadn't tried the same approach with Android. There has been hesitation to do so due to the sentiment that Android users are less likely to purchase higher end games on their devices. This is a trend that has been changing overtime, but gaming parity between iOS and Android is still in the workd. This is definitely an exciting day for Android users.
Final Fantasy III -- now on 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.
