Square Enix sure likes tossing re-released ports onto the Steam Store without release dates. Accordingly, Final Fantasy III for the PC is now available for sale on the Steam Store and elsewhere. Last mentioned back in April of this year and price-confirmed earlier this month, the game appeared there and on other digital retailers just this morning.
Final Fantasy III is priced at $15.99/€12.99/£10.99 at the Steam Store, but digital retailers GMG and GameFly Digital both have site-wide
22% off (Update 7/25: Best deal now is 20% Off) codes that work on Steam keys of the game. Details below:
The game has been updated with Steam Trading Cards and the usual Achievement stuff. (Yay?) Screenshots shown at the retailers make it seem likely that the PC port differs very little from the smartphone version, so there won’t be an updated graphical experience as far as I can tell.
If the 20% off isn’t enticing, we suspect the game will eventually reach the 33-50% off level by this holiday season. (It took a while for FF VII and FF VIII, but both titles eventually dropped below the $6 level by around the 10 month mark.) At the pace Square Enix is going, all titles will eventually appear on mobile platforms and the PC – probably not a bad thing for those of us wanting to revisit some nostalgia.
