Final Fantasy III was originally released on the Japanese Famicom system back in 1986 and never saw a release outside of Japan. So while it might technically be an older game, it's going to be a completely new RPG experience for most gamers outside of Japan. As if that weren't enough, Square-Enix has completely updated the game with a fresh set of 3-D visuals and a remixed musical score to go along with it. Square-Enix chose to leave the standard turn-based battle system pretty much unchanged instead of making use of the Active Time Battle system used in later Final Fantasy releases. So what do you get when you take a two-decade old RPG and slap a fresh coat of paint on it? One of the best portable RPGs ever released, that's what.
After a thunderous earthquake swallows the sacred crystals of light into the ground, the land is slowly consumed by darkness. In order to restore the peaceful balance of their world the four warriors of light must embark on an epic quest to locate the crystals and restore their light. Along the way they?ll meet up with many interesting people that will aide them on their quest by guiding them and providing invaluable information regarding the many secrets of the crystals and their power. But before the light can be restored, the four warriors will have to locate the cause of all of this destruction and put a stop to it once and for all if they're to have any chance of restoring peace and prosperity to their land. It?s an epic tale of good vs. evil that unfolds across many continents in several different worlds.
