By Ishaan . November 1, 2012 . 12:50pm

Final Fantasy III is on everything. It’s on the Nintendo DS, it’s on the iPhone and iPad, it’s on Android devices, it’s on the PSP, and now it’s on the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD as well.


The Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD versions of Final Fantasy III cost $15.99 on the Amazon Appstore.

    The irony of all this is that it was the last of the originally unreleased FFs (II, III, V) to be released in the US.

    • Yup. Considering it was never released before in the US. Now it’s everywhere.

  • Romangelo

    more irony, it’s one of the worst Final Fantasy ever. especially its boring story.

  • Rogerrmark

    I was not familiar with that platform(Kindle Fire),so when I read the title,my head made this brainstorm below:
    FFIII+ Me tired of it= throw it on fire
    Kindle Fire
    Kindling Bonfires
    Dark Souls
    How can a story/info about Dark Souls and FFIII can actually exist,since siliconera it’s not IGN?
    Then,I understood ‘-‘


  • AndyFe

    Geez enough with FF3 it’s really not that great

  • AkuLord3

    So when are we going see 5 or 6 with the same treatment mmm SquareEnix?! :l

    • Rogerrmark

      I’ve been wishing Anniversary Editions for V and VI for years now(like I and II for PSP) ):
      Or remakes.Not sure this will happen soon though.

      Wonder why,since most fans,even the Nes/Snes generation games fans,seems to really don’t care that much about FFIII.If at all.

    But isn’t the Kindle an E-Book?

    • No, it can run apps too.

    • malek86

      The Kindle is. The Kindle Fire 2 (and Fire HD) are pretty much standard Android tablets. The only big difference is that they don’t have the Google Play Store, you get your apps directly from the Amazon Store.

    • Pyrotek85

      This was the first thing I thought of too, with the gray-scale screen. I know Amazon has full tablets but I still think eReader when I see the name Kindle.

    From the forgotten fantasy to one of the most ported titles.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Going Cave Story now, FF III?

  • Yvonne Tsang

    STOP IT. -smacks SE’s hand-

  • Crevox

    I think they want to see how many systems they can copy it to

  • Göran Isacson

    At this point all I wonder is “why”? Why this game? Is it especially cheap to port to other platforms? Is it because they can? They must have done some really good job on the DS version if the code there can be ported easily and cheaply to all kinds of platforms…

  • badmoogle

    Why aren’t they doing the same with FFIV? 

  • Levin_Scorpius

    Why are Final Fantasy V, VI and IX your least favorite children, Square Enix?

    • What about VIII? The three you spoke of at least get MENTIONED. Us 8 fans are dyin’ out here!

      • Just Tim

        I too personally prefer VIII > VII, because:

        –thanks to “OH MY GOD!  THEY KILLED AERIS!”  “YOU BASTARD!”, that pretty much narrowed down VII for me.

        –VIII is about a defrosting Ice King (Squall) and his emotional development.
        –VIII is savvy enough not to spam, “Squall, Laguna is your daddy.”
        –VIII’s Junction system > Materia system; it’s more complex to me.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    FF 3 ruling the world lol.^_^

  • Hinataharem

    Guile’s theme goes with everything, FF3 plays on everything.

  • Ok, sure, go ahead, port it to a kindle now, but 15.99!? Do you WANT people to buy it!?

    I beat the game long ago, so I don’t plan on playing again, but what new fan is gonna pay that hefty price!?

    • 324234

      Didn’t it launch at $30-35 on DS? It’s about the same price on DS now, but this is a brand new port, not a years old port. What do you expect..

  • PS3 HD port, anyone?

  • Elvick

    How about you actually do a new remake that doesn’t suck? Sorry, but I hated the DS remakes of III and IV. Especially of III. I want one like the PSP remakes of I, II and IV Complete.

    III is like the step-child of Final Fantasy. Square doesn’t really care about it, but will whore it out anyway.

    • Just Tim

      They’re just making up for lost time, specifically for this installment.

      Also, consider this a bonus for American gamers in general, since a lot of the games are into Easy MODO.

    • Um, how about no. The PSP version used the stupid number based MP system instead of the OG one.

      • Elvick


  • komiko12

    Well, maybe they are increasing the chances that it will be the first Final Fantasy most new players will get to play.

    It is the only FF that still uses the old MP system that the original FF used.

    • That MP system was so boss. Mop up trash with your low class spell and then rain hellfire on the bosses.

  • yellowmage

    Please don’t imply that Kindle Fire is a separate OS; FFIII has been available on Android for more than four months and the Kindle Fire OS is just Android in a skintight, non-breathable Amazon-branded bodysuit*.

    And FFIII is not on everything. At least not as much everything as FFs I, II or even IV:

    FF(I): NES, MSX, WSC, PS, GBA, Mobile, PSP, iOS, Android, Windows Phone
    FFII: [See above, minus MSX, Android and Windows Phone]
    FFIII, NES, DS, iOS, Android, PSP, Ouya*
    FFIV: SNES, WSC, PS, GBA, DS, Mobile, PSP

    I know that KF has its own curated app store, separate from Google Play, but still.

    *Hm, what’s that? “But yellowmage! Why do you discount the Kindle Fire for being Android underneath, but count Ouya when it’s also based on Android?”

    Because the Ouya version will be optimized to take advantage of all the extra features Ouya will have. Granted, we don’t know exactly how yet (in fact, we don’t really know anything about it other than the fact that it’s coming), but I think it will be different enough to warrant a separate listing. And not just in having proper, non-touchscreen controls.
