Final Fantasy III PSP To Have English Text

News RPG PSP Sony Square Enix

It looks like Square Enix is making the Playstation Portable port of Final Fantasy III import friendly. In a posting by Tales Source (and translated by Andriasang), the publisher is set to reveal English text support in the next Famitsu issue. In order to use the English text, the PSP’s language must be set to English, which should be no problem for anyone outside of Japan with their primary language being English.

This is excellent news seeing that the PSP market is now dead. There have been question marks on whether Square Enix will publish the port outside of Japan, as it has with Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy IV PSP games. The only obstacle would be the cost, but PSP games are usually cheaper due to being an handheld device. However, if you want to import it, then the PSP game will be released on September 20.

UPDATE: The first screenshot of Final Fantasy III with English has been released, confirming that Final Fantasy III will indeed have English as a language option. You can see it below.

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!
