Final Fantasy III Heads To Virtual Console In July

imageJapan gets Final Fantasy III (no not the one with Terra, the Onion Knight one on the Famicom) as a Virtual Console game next month. For 500 Wii Points ($5) you can suffer through Garuda in glorious 8-bit.

 

The other two games are Super Punch Out and Shinobi for Virtual Console Arcade. July 2009 will be the first month where there are less scheduled Virtual Console games than weeks in the month. This guarantees Nintendo will release less than one game a week.

 

Square Enix will continue to support Virtual Console with at least three more Final Fantasy ports, but I wouldn’t expect too much from the platform in the future.
