Final Fantasy III on PSN

PlayStation fans are no strangers to the FINAL FANTASY brand, and have continued to be devoted supporters over the series’ 25 year history. Last fall, we brought two additional classic entries in this franchise to the PSN catalog as part of our Winter of RPGs campaign.

This time, I’m here to help close out summer with a bang. The list of numbered FINAL FANTASY titles available on the PlayStation family of consoles has been incredible, but alas, it has also been incomplete. That changes on September 25th, with the release of FINAL FANTASY III on PlayStation Network.

Now, PSP owners will be able to experience a piece of FINAL FANTASY history as they embark on a journey with the four Warriors of Light — Luneth, Arc, Refia, and Ingus — as they battle to save the world from being engulfed in Darkness. A dangerous mission, to be sure; to accomplish their task, they will need an incredible set of skills.

FINAL FANTASY III was the first installment in the series to include the now-famous Job System. While this band of heroes starts out as Freelancers, with time, they will each be able to learn one of 23 different jobs! Use the healing spells of the White Mage to protect your party, harness the negative energies of the world as a Dark Knight, or turn the environment itself into a weapon as a Geomancer. These are but three of the many options available — there’s a multitude of incredible of job combinations for your party. Mix and match until you find the combination you like best!

But there’s more! New features for the PSP version include: graphics optimized for the 16:9 screen, an image gallery, an option to switch to the original BGM, and an auto-battle system that doubles the speed of combat.

FINAL FANTASY III debuts on PSN September 25th. Download it, complete your FINAL FANTASY collection, and then start figuring out what you want your Warriors to be when they grow up. Oh, and say hi to Cid for me when you see him!

Wait, what? They can announce it whenever they want! How is it a marketing fail? Your brain, it don’t work right.

I understand why Square is releasing it for the PSP and not the Vita. They just don’t want to do the extra work of putting trophies in the game. I am sure it will work on the Vita but I have doubts that it will work day 1, the the blogcast said it will work on vita but a sony rep afterwards informed IGN that it was an incorrect statement. As long as it works before the end of 2012 I’ll be ok.

“FINAL FANTASY III debuts on PSN September 25th. Download it, complete your FINAL FANTASY collection, …”

That statement tends to avoid some of the reality. Strictly a PS3 user, not PSP or Vita. My original PS and PS2 crapped out many years ago, and was really excited about how the PS Store was building up the collection being playable on the PS3. Then I could have almost all on my PS3. But alas, Final Fantasy 4 has yet to come out. And now this kink of the original Final Fantasy 3, that was never before released in North America, is only for portable users.

Square-Enix really knows how to undermine their truest fans. Especially since merging with the Enix team. This cross-platform marketing with titled series, is really dirty business at times and I cannot afford to buy a platform just for one or even a few games. This is a slight “slap in the face” to the original fans from the late 1980′s, early 1990′s.

Just a sad scenario, considering I’ve been a loyal fan of Square’s games in the past.

@xemotakux

Its out on the PS3 PSN not the vita… major let down if you ask me. Was really looking forward to putting this on the vita. Some members at neogaf report that it works if you purchase it on the ps3 and dl it for the recent list on the vita but others report it doesn’t. Try your luck.
