Final Fantasy III Coming To PSP

News PS Vita PSP RPG Sony Square Enix

Over in Japan, Square Enix is bringing the third game of the Final Fantasy series to the Playstation brand for the first time on the Playstation Portable, according to the latest issue of Jump. The game will be based on the DS remake, which feature 3D models, instead of the other early main series PSP titles, which featured updated sprites. The game will be available at retail or via the Playstation Store on September 20. Retail copies will be sold at ¥3,990, while PS Store copies will be available at ¥3,300. The official site is up and running right now. While it is being developed for the PSP, it will also be available for Vita due to the Vita’s PSP compatibility feature.

Features from the iOS port are being added to this version. In addition, players can expect widescreen support, gallery mode where players can listen to BGM and see illustrations, an option to switch to the original Famicom music and an auto battle option that doubles the speed of battle. Screenshots and a teaser trailer were released, which you can see below. There is no word on whether the game will reach the West. While the PSP is practically on the way out, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy IV have all made the jump. Maybe they could offer it as a download.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
