FF3 for iPhone? Really? Will it be the a ported version of the Nintendo DS one? That's more surprising news to me than FFT coming out in the spring (which was already established back in December I think).

Thanks.

Please don't let them release FF3 on iOS or my wife will definitely leave me then (but I wouldn't even look up from my ipod to notice)...

Meh, I didn't really like FFIII on the DS. Why not FFIV or VI? =/

They are face-lifting FF IV for PsP, aren't they? Maybe it will make it's way to iOS eventually.

Square Enix remade FFIV for the DS. I'd rather see that version.

Maybe they're trying to release them in order? Well, by number anyway xD

Oh... please stricken my earlier enthusiam from the thread as I mistook FFVI (which was released as FFIII on SNES) for the game rumored to be released. FFVI is the ultimate FF, there can be no others. If FFVI were to get a formal iOS release I'm certain the world would end the next day. FFVI is the game that destroyed my childhood.

Since there's so much discussion now in this FFT thread on the possible release of a FF3 release based on Yadliu's post should someone be opening a new thread on FF3? I only have the time right now to post here real quick rather than opening a new thread properly or I would. I don't understand Japanese so can't tell if what Yodaliu is referencing is more of a rumour in that Japanese magazine or what. If its not just a rumour then I sure would like for a more major news site (like TA) to maybe look into this if at all possible. But if its true then I think my comments/questions/theories are:

1) Seeing as how FF1, FF2, and FFT (still in the works) are all ports of revised/updated editions of the games from the PSP, what does it mean for FF3? Speaking of ports, FF4 and FF3 were heavily revised (3D models, etc) for the Nintendo DS, however an additional "revised" version of FF4 was released recently for the PSP but it was more like the updated versions of FF1 and FF2 over there, so no 3D models. I was kind of surprised myself to see that SquareEnix would bother with a separate type of revision to the game but perhaps Nintendo has some ownership for the polygoned versions of FF3 and FF4.

2) So, my guess it that it is probably that we will be getting a port of FF3 on the iOS. However, seeing as how I don't think we've gotten a single port of anything released on the DS then it seems likely that this would be a revised edition of FF3 released on iOS similarly to how FF4 got revised sprites, etc for the PSP.

3) Speaking of Secret of Mana, as far as I know, the iOS port of that game was somewhat original, meaning it wasn't ported from either the DS or the PSP and it was somewhat revised for iOS. So, since the only current revision of FF3 that I'm aware of exists on the DS then my guess is that this new version of FF3 on iOS will be similar to the iOS ports of FF1 and FF2 - that is, no 3D models, updates to sprites instead, etc.

Anyway, those are my rambling thoughts on this topic. And now that I spent so much time writing all of this I could have just opened a new forum thread...

EDIT: I just posted in this URL about this - didn't feel like opening up a new thread just for this. This other thread was wondering about additional FF ports.
