Last month, we reported that Square Enix were bringing Final Fantasy III to PC, and this morning, Square Enix officially announced the game for a PC release.

 

Final Fantasy III will be available on Steam “soon”. It will cost $15.99/€12.99/£10.99.

 

Square say the game has been updated with Steam Trading Cards and Achievements, as well as new visual designs for the Job Mastery Cards.

 

Square Enix also mention “new and improved 3D visuals and story sequences,” but have not provided further details as to whether the PC version features upgrades over Final Fantasy III’s smartphone release.

    Best worst looking graphics.

    • Syntheril

      Those are from the phone version.

      • LustEnvy

        I mean that the game being on PC is gonna be high resolution with simple graphics. It’s gonna look great, albeit simplistic.

  • Reanau

    Not bad, i hope they’re thinking about the possibility of Porting FFIV next….

  • David García Abril

    Long live low polys!

  • Firion Hope

    This is the only one of the first IX that I didn’t get to play a significant amount of, wouldn’t mind trying it

  • Inganno

    I wonder if this version makes the game a little more manageable to play through difficulty wise. Though, I did enjoy the back breaking difficulty, it would be nice to go at a bit of a slower pace this time around.

  • Tetris

    Curious pricing decision at $16.

    • Taedirk

      It’s been their standard pricing for re-releases on mobile platforms.

      • Tetris

        Still doesn’t make any more sense for a Steam release that makes FFVII and VIII cheaper than a much older entry in the series.

        • Michael Kelehan

          7 and 8 are much older than the 3D remake of FF3.

        • César H. Sandoval

          Well, VII and VIII are not remakes… I highly doubt SE will sell the NES version of III for 16bucks.

        • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

          Look on the bright side: At least this is more likely to go on sale than it’s mobile version is.

  • Earthjolly

    RIP OFF

    • César H. Sandoval

      Just get in on slae, Steam has a lot of good discounts from time to time.

  • ZnTxn

    With the DS-era Nintendo WiFi shutting down. I hope they did make an easier way to get the Onion Knight job.

    • rekka_zan

      In the PSP version, you only need to do a small sidequest to unlock Onion Knight. Maybe they’ll go with that.

    • Sora96

      The DS version is the only version to have that silly way.

  • Universe

    I’m fine with the low-poly models, but not with the unfiltered low-res textures. Let’s hope they at least improve the textures over the smarthphone port shown above.

    By the way, this is the first single-player Final Fantasy game to be released on PC since 2000.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      It looks like the psp version to me

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Actually, that may be either the Phone version or the Ouya version that’s in the pictures. Definitely not the PSP one, though.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I don’t see why not they all look the same

          • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

            Considering I just loaded up FF3 on my Vita in order to compare between the pictures, I can say without a doubt that the pictures used in this article are not the PSP version.

            Yes, they look the same to you, but the PSP version was actually more low-poly– more along the same lines as the DS version, only a little better– than the pictures in here. The pictures here are a lot more clear and the models are smoothed out.

            Also, you know, it’s an entirely different interface in battle, so I think my claim is at least accurate that the pictures above are not the PSP version. I even took a picture (using my phone, so excuse the blurriness. No native picture taking with PSP games.), so you can see what I mean by the interface itself being different from the above pictures, which use a more smoothed out and easily seeable interface.

    Steam page shows no Japanese in the language options. Weird…

  • landlock

    Never really liked FFIII on the DS. I don’t think FF started getting good until FFIV personally,

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

      For me it was since FFV although I did enjoy FFI for the PSP.

    • Eilanzer

      yeah…the story in 3 is THE generic fantasy, crystal…

    • Masa

      Agree.

    • SolRevr

      I didn’t love it on DS either, but I ended up getting the PSP version in a sale and it is definitely a superior and more playable version. The addition of a fast auto battle feature really saved the game imo. It’s still far from the best FF, but for $5-10 in a sale it is worth having in your digital collection.

    • https://twitter.com/Ni_Go_Zero_Ichi Project 2501

      Yeah. The 8-bit FFs (like most other 8-bit RPGs) are just too archaic to hold up, no matter how many fancy remakes they get.

  • Monterossa

    It’s not a bad game but not good either. I hope FFIV/TAY, V and VI will be available on Steam soon.

    • pimpalicious

      I would disagree and say it’s good but the game is old and feels that way. A lot of conveniences people are used to like regular save points in large dungeons aren’t going to be found here.

      • https://twitter.com/Ni_Go_Zero_Ichi Project 2501

        I’d say putting the last two dungeons plus the final boss back-to-back-to-back without a single opportunity to save is something of a dealbreaker, but maybe that’s just me.

  • Tom

    I’m so glad I bought this a couple of years ago used on DS…

  • Dystopiq

    PC Masterrace? Eh. I’ll take it.

  • Samsara09

    Next they are gonna release final fantasy IV for PC…

  • RunningWild1984

    I never played Final Fantasy 3, so maybe I’ll check it out. I’d be more interested if they ported 4 to PC though.

  • James Enk

    i’ve played it on the DS and i don’t think is that good of a game. As for the price i think they could charge less for it

  • https://twitter.com/Ni_Go_Zero_Ichi Project 2501

    Christ, what a ripoff. The bajillionth port of a nearly decade-old DS game that was already antequated when it came out is not worth that much.

    Though, if SquEnix is bothering to port its mobile games to PC at all, how about one for FF Dimensions and/or War of the Lions? I’m sure the FF4 remake would have an audience too.

    • Aspenharls

      Please, no, no more FF4. FF4 has about as many, if not more, remakes than this game!

  • eilegz

    facepalm, are you serious square enix…

    hopefully no one buy this since there are no improvement over ds version

  • Otoya

    Never played ff3 before, guess finally can play it on PC. Now waiting for ff9~~~~

  • Unlimax

    So lazy .. they didn’t even bother replace better textures
    Textures Looks so washed out and its painful to watch for a 16$ game
    Edit : Ok , then let’s wait and see ▼

    • Universe

      Those screenshots are not from the Steam version. We don’t know how it looks yet.

  • Toadhall

    I don’t mind the graphics. They look charming enough. But they could have at least made the text look better!

  • Ryker

    Not a great price. I’m not sure I will get this even if it goes on sale. As fun as as the class customization was, the plot doesn’t really have enough meat for a re-play. Yeah, I know when it originally came out, and that it’s just a remake– Anyways, grats to the people who actually want this.
