Final Fantasy III 3D Remake Coming Soon to Steam


Following last year’s Steam re-releases of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII, Square Enix is once again digging into its catalog of old Final Fantasy games to bring back for PC gamers to enjoy. This time around, Final Fantasy III is getting the Steam treatment.

Not the original version, but the version that was remade with 3D polygonal graphics for the Nintendo DS and then later ported around to various other mobile platforms like Android, iOS, and PSP. Now it’s coming to Steam with the works, including achievements, trading cards, cloud saves, and full controller support. Not even FF VII and VIII had all those perks.

The official list of features goes a little something like this:

•New and improved 3D visuals and story sequences
•Quicker browsing through the monster bestiary and other game record
•New visual designs for the Job Mastery Cards
•Upgraded graphics
•New feature of Steam Trading Cards

Improved though they may be, the textures don’t look so hot blown up for big-screen play, but the game definitely still has that classic Final Fantasy charm going for it. Other than a vague “coming soon” proclamation, Square Enix hasn’t confirmed a specific launch date or price point.
