"Final Fantasy III" Now Available on iPhone (R)/iPod touch (R)

TOKYO, March 24/KYODO JBN/–

– To celebrate this launch, a limited-time sale is ongoing for Square Enix iPhone/iPod touch apps –

First released in 1990, "Final Fantasy III" was the first title in the series to become a million-seller. The full 3D remake released for the Nintendo DS in 2006 duplicated the original’s success, selling over a million copies worldwide — and now the classic RPG is being released on the iPhone/iPod touch.

The iPhone/iPod touch version of "Final Fantasy III" features fully-remade 3D graphics, taking full advantage of the platform’s capabilities. Smooth, intuitive touch-panel controls, a product of Square Enix’s previous iPhone RPG experience, makes the game easier to play than ever.

"Final Fantasy III" tells the story of four youngsters caught in a grand adventure centered around the crystals. It is the first in the series to feature monster summons and a job-change system — and now you can take advantage of the iPhone/iPod touch release to enjoy it all over again. The iPad version will be available for download in April 2011.
