NDS Final Fantasy III Set For Europe

Square Enix has announced the official release of Final Fantasy III for Europe: May 4, 2007.

Square Enix today announces that Final Fantasy III will be released on 4th May 2007 exclusively on Nintendo DS.

Originally available only in Japan for the Famicom (known in Europe as the Nintendo Entertainment System), Final Fantasy III is considered the sole missing title in the world-renowned series in the Western world. Now, 17 years after its Japanese debut, European fans will be able to savour the legendary adventure for the first time.

John Yamamoto, President and CEO of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "The arrival of Final Fantasy III on Nintendo DS showcases the power of the hardware and proves that no compromise has to be made in order to create an adventure of this magnitude for a handheld system. With over 1.4 million copies already shipped in Japan and North America, we are sure that Final Fantasy III will be a big success in Europe too."

Hiromichi Tanaka, Director and Executive Producer of Final Fantasy III comments, "Final Fantasy III has been made anew on the Nintendo DS platform, including new graphics in 3D, rebalanced jobs, and brand new characterisation for the four young heroes. We hope that not only Final Fantasy fans, but a wide variety of players in Europe, enjoy the new Final Fantasy III."

With an innovative interface that capitalizes on the Nintendo DS capabilities, players can now experience the title that introduced the popular moogles, summons and the dynamic job system to the Final Fantasy series.

  • About time then. Its only been like 2 years or something since it was originally released and had about 2 other games in the franchise released on the same handheld. The newer harvest moon(something to do with an island) looks good. So does this.
