App description: Final Fantasy III -- now on iPhone and iPod touch!

First released in 1990, Final Fantasy III was the first title in the Final Fantasy series to become a million-seller, establishing once and for all that Square Enix's classic RPG saga was here to stay.
The full 3D remake released in 2006 duplicated the original's success, selling over a million copies worldwide.

Final Fantasy III was a hallmark of innovation for the entire series, from the job system that lets characters change classes at any time to the ability to summon powerful creatures such as Shiva and Bahamut.

When darkness falls and the land is robbed of light, four youths are chosen by the crystals to set forth on a journey to save the world.

Strange, in itunes for its release date it says 16th march. Maybe they meant to release it then but the earthquake on the 11th pushed it back.

Does anyone know if this has game center integration? Will it be a universal app? Ipad version?

1. No.
2. No.
3. S/E always makes a seperate iPad version.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

FFIII on DS got an average 80/100 score from various sources.

Finally I will see Shiva and Bahamut again. I loved the series since they've added the powerful creature summonings. FFIV is even better with that.
well in that case I'd rather just wait for FF4. not like I'm running out of games in the meantime

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

You'll miss a great game.

But sure, FFIV on DS is nearly untouchable, it's just great.
That doesn't mean that FFIII is a bad game. But you'll have to wait a long time for FFIV. I am sure they will release it for iOS.

Great to see iOS being home to the first 3 FFs, definitely hoping to see 4 and beyond because that's when it really gets epic! This will keep us all busy before FF Tactics comes rolling along. It's awesome to have SE support the Appstore.

The FFIV remake on DS was fantastic. I missed this one though, and am very glad it's come to iOS!

I kind of want to wait and see how the controls stack up.

Even at a higher pricepoint, I'm glad that AAA developers are starting to recognize iOS gaming as a serious force, even if it is a port. 13.99 is a steal for this quality of game.

Edit: GameTrailers has a nice video review of the DS version.

Yeah! Out at last!

However, I would like to register a token complaint about the price (then get it anyway).
