<blockquote>Nintendo wasn’t satisfied though. Taking a page out of Sony’s “How to Bring A Giant Down” manual, Nintendo has secured the remake of Final Fantasy 3 to the DS. Naturally the remake is being handled by those fine chaps at Square-Enix. We consider FF3 to be a signficant boost to the new platform for several reasons. First of all, this is the only Final Fantasy that hasn’t been remade and commerically released. Secondly, FF3 has never managed to make it to western shores - and while there has been no details on a North American release, you can be assured that localizing for English DS owners would almost secure the success of the machine. Nevertheless, when we have more details about FF3, we will bring it to you. Do not confuse this version with Final Fantasy 6, which was the third version of Final Fantasy when it hit the US market.</blockquote>
Can you imagine the possibilties? Think of all the times the party splits in 2! You could play one party on the top screen, and the other on the bottom! Or it could just be a straight port, but hell, i wouldn’t mind
EDIT: Well, there seems to be some confusion if it is FF3 U or J, and also some confusion if it is FFVI…>>;; I really could care less, i’d play all 3!
It fucking says “Do not confuse this version with Final Fantasy 6, which was the third version of Final Fantasy when it hit the US market”. Christ people, you learned to read in Kindergarden. Shit, use those basic skills.
I don’t know the price, but whatever it is it’ll probably be at least half the price of the psp. I’m definately getting the DS with that rpg line-up, though if the psp has some good rpgs, i might be tempted to get both…not. Nintendo all the way on handhelds.
To be honest, I’m not thrilled with the idea of having the game on a portable system. Hell, I don’t think RPGs should be on them, but that’s just me. I think they should have included FFIII with Final Fantasy Origins when they brought FFII over. They could have charged the extra ten bucks to make the game $49.99 and then every single FF would be on PS/Ps2 until the next generation console came out.
