Final Fantasy III coming to Steam 'soon'

"Optimised for PC gaming with new 3D visuals and story sequences"

Square Enix has announced plans to release Final Fantasy III on Steam "soon".

The updated PC version of the JRPG, which was outed in April by the German classification board USK, promises new and improved 3D visuals and story sequences, plus Steam Trading Cards and Achievements.

The game originally released in Japan on Famicom in 1990 and went on to become the first million-seller in the long-running series. A 3D remake launched for DS in Japan and America in 2006, and in Europe the following year, while the game was remastered for iPhone in 2011.

CVG's Final Fantasy III review of the DS version labelled the game "a technically impressive adventure that sticks to the tried and trusted traditional FF formula".


Protected by the crystals of light, the once peaceful land has forever been changed by the great tremor. Without warning, the earthquake pulled the crystals into the earth, upsetting the world's fragile balance. It seems as if all hope is lost - but as the Gulgan prophecy foretold, four souls blessed with the light shall once again restore balance to the world.

Near the small village of Ur, fate guides Luneth to a sentient crystal that changes his life forever. As the light of the crystal fades, Luneth embarks on a journey to seek three others who share his destiny to search for the remaining crystals, and fight the battle of light and darkness.
