Final Fantasy III DS

Posted by RAGNAROCK On October - 28 - 2005

Final Fantasy 3 / III DS Final fantasy III is now being updated by Nintendo and is to be released by 2006. All other Final Fantasy titles up to VII will be available on the GBA and the Nintendo DS by 2006, or so Square-Enix intends.

Final fantasy III was originally an RPG with a great story, interesting characters, and great graphics for its time. These graphics are about to be updated for the Nintendo DS and the music that was in it, while being very good is also due a overhaul. The game tends to last at least 40 – 50 hours in terms of gameplay.

Sounds far to good to be true, does it not?!

I played the original and found no faults. After playing it the first time, however, I finally I found that FF3 has 2 main drawbacks; if you haven’t played an RPG before it will be very confusing; the fighting can be repetitive but that is a common Final Fantasy drawback. Any fan will find the story far makes up for this!

The fact that the game took 40 – 50 hours to complete is not because it is so difficult to defeat bosses etc., it’s simply because the game is so big. Also bare in mind that it’s only a very good RPG player that will take 40 – 50 hours to complete!

Another good thing is that the game was packed with secret characters, relics, weapons and items whether this is the case with the new version from Nintendo remains to be seen, but if Final Fantasy III DS is anything like the original this will be a top selling title. You won’t leave this game to collect dust on a shelf somewhere once completed, as FF3 is a game to return to again and again if not to find all the secrets but then to experience the fantastic story of FF3 which almost is the equal if not better of FF7 storyline.

The General Storyline

The evil empire in charge Emperor Gestahl who hears of our main characters gift and captures her and gains complete control over her by putting a slave crown on her head. They then use her powers to gain even more land and is now starting to drain energy for creatures to produce their newly invented Magitech Battlesuits that use some kind of magical imitation. In the beginning she gets attacked by an Esper and Terra gets rid of the curse of the slave crown. She wakes up in an Inn and has completely lost her memory and cannot even remember her own name! The old man explains that she is a soldier of the empire and suddenly some imperial soldiers knock on the door and she escapes out the backdoor in to the mines. Unfortunately, though, some of the guards had seen her when she fled and they run after her. This is just the beginning of truly immersive storyline that people will love for years to come!

    Hi,
    There is one glaring error in your review my friend. The general storyline that you quoted is not from Final Fantasy III, it is from Final Fantasy VI. The Final Fantasy III for the DS, which, from what I understand may or may not be released in the U.S. is a remake of the original Final Fantasy III that came out for the Nintendo Famicom system. Which, consequently was the first Final Fantasy in the series to have the job system. If this game has any commonalities with any of the other games in the series, it would be Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy V (Final Fantasy Anthology); the game really does not have anything in common with Final Fantasy VII. Seeing as how they are updating an 8 Bit game to modern times, it will definitely have better graphics and music. Final Fantasy IV was released over here as Final Fantasy III to preserve the continuity of the series for the United States. If it is released in the United States, it will mark the first time that this game will have been released over here.
    Cordially,
    Jeremy R. Rutherford

    I mean that Final Fantasy VI was released over here as Final Fantasy III to preserve the continuity of the series. Likewise, Final Fantasy IV was released over here as Final Fantasy II for the same reasons.

    I’ve seen screens of FF3-DS, and… I don’t know. I played FF3 for the Famicom, and I think (maybe I’m the only one) that it’s one of the better games in the series. The first to introduce the battle system, the first to introduce percussion in the music as well as the Fat Chocobo. It was also the first to include a massive battleship (similar to the Lunar Whale), and even Cecil’s (FF4) map sprite.
    The game preview I saw was rendered in polygonal graphics, the Onion Knights (the main characters of FF3-FC), have different looks – basically taking the Onion Knight away (as far as we know it). I’ll probably get it because I am such a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, but… it just looks so disappointing. All I have to say, is that the music better be the same tunes revamped. The bosses better be the same ones, and the same with the enemies. Otherwise… it won’t be Final Fantasy III… just a stupid game with a Final Fantasy Title.

    i swear to god, i only reserved the game thinking it was the final Fantasy IV version, if the DS version of the game doesn’t compare in game and story as IV, i’m gonna burn it and hope to god SquareENIX will never make another game EVER!!!!
