Electronic Theatre ImageSquareEnix Ltd., the publisher of SquareEnix Interactive Entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that FINAL FANTASY III will be released on 4th May 2007 exclusively on NintendoDS.

Electronic Theatre ImageOriginally available only in Japan for the Famicom (known in Europe as the Nintendo Entertainment System), FINAL FANTASY III is considered the sole missing title in the world-renowned series in the Western world. Now, 17 years after its Japanese debut, European fans will be able to savour the legendary adventure for the first time.

Protected by the crystals of light, the once peaceful land has forever been changed by the great tremor. Without warning, the earthquake pulled the crystals into the earth, upsetting the world’s fragile balance. It seems as if all hope is lost – but as the Gulgan prophecy foretold, four souls blessed with the light shall once again restore balance to the world.

Near the small village of Ur, fate guides Luneth to a sentient crystal that changes his life forever. As the light of the crystal fades, Luneth embarks on a journey to seek three others who share his destiny to search for the remaining crystals, and fight the battle of light and darkness.

John Yamamoto, President and CEO of SquareEnix Ltd. comments, “The arrival of FINAL FANTASY III on NintendoDS showcases the power of the hardware and proves that no compromise has to be made in order to create an adventure of this magnitude for a handheld system. With over 1.4 million copies already shipped in Japan and North America, we are sure that FINAL FANTASY III will be a big success in Europe too.”

Hiromichi Tanaka, Director and Executive Producer of FINAL FANTASY III comments, “FINAL FANTASY III has been made anew on the NintendoDS platform, including new graphics in 3D, rebalanced jobs, and brand new characterisation for the four young heroes. We hope that not only FINAL FANTASY fans, but a wide variety of players in Europe, enjoy the new FINAL FANTASY III.”

With an innovative interface that capitalizes on the NintendoDS’ capabilities, players can now experience the title that introduced the popular moogles, summons and the dynamic job system to the FINAL FANTASY series.

Featuring Wi-Fi play, stunning 3D visuals and an unparalleled Role-Playing experience on the NintendoDS, May 4th, 2007, will be anticipated by many, many gamers in the UK. Look out for the full, definitive In-depth Review coming from Electronic Theatre next week.
