The DS is almost close enough to smell, and as the excitement builds, all sorts of interesting revelations are finding their way to our inbox. Today brings the announcement that Square Enix is to put a version of Final Fantasy III onto DS. FFIII is one of the only games in the series to have never been re-worked since its initial Famicom release, and will definitely appeal to FF completists; as well as anyone else who enjoys a solid RPG.
Square Enix has already promised Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles for the DS, so the Nintendo handheld may now find itself looking very attractive in the eyes of FF’s cultish fanbase. It’s sure to help the machine’s success in Japan, at the very least. And it might not stop there. Square Enix had previously quizzed its GBA customers as to what FF games they would like to see on the DS. FF III was an obvious first choice, as it only exists in its original form, but if this sells well we may see a wider range of FF titles becoming available on the DS in the future.
More Square Enix news, more DS news and more happy joy excitement will follow shortly.
