    One of the biggest franchises has touched down on the Nintendo DS in Square Enix’s Final Fantasy III. The 3D remake for DS is one that is highly anticipated in the gaming community, and Japanese gamers have been overwhelmed by the amount of coverage given by the media recently.
    Information and new images have been published in Japanese magazines Nintendo Dream and Famitsu, with some absolutely stunning fresh images and artwork pouring through as well as some juicy information on the title’s specifics. The title is a fresh 3D remake of the Famicom (NES) classic of the same name and although has a new face, will feature a similar style, presentation and care.
    Both screens will be used, with the bottom screen as main as the developers wanted touch-screen capabilities to be fully used.
    The screen can be used to select items, navigate menus, select battle commands etc.
    No map will be displayed in dungeons.
    The game will be in full 3D, including movable camera during events.
    The main party will be made up of 3 males and 1 female with different names and characteristics
    The original FFIII story will not be altered.
    Additional events and episodes in the game are used to develop characters and their background stories
    There will be 23 different jobs, with capacity points required to change job
    Players will be able to save anywhere (for it’s a portable game).
    Thanks to duckroll and neo on the neoGAFforums for the cans and translation.
    Square Enix is aiming for a summer 2006 release for the title.
    The official website has some information on the title (Japanese), which is worth checking out.
    Stick with C3 for future updates.

                The Final Fantasy series has trundled over to all territories now after its turbulent existence on the NES and SNES, with no Final Fantasy games coming to Europe at all. Now, though, the only remaining true FF RPG to not have been translated for the West is coming exclusively to the Nintendo DS in a remade format that will take your breath away!
                The way the story goes is that Nintendo desperately wanted Square Enix to resurrect Final Fantasy III for the GBA originally, but the company stone-walled Nintendo saying that it wanted to put out Final Fantasy I & II on the handheld first and would only then consider remaking the never-before-Westernised NES game. Of course what has happened now is that the two companies have become so close that we have already seen Final Fantasy IV revived on the GBA (due in June across Europe) and will be getting updated ports of FFV and VI as well for the 32-bit portable. As for Final Fantasy III, it has now become more of a priority for Square Enix, not only moving to the Nintendo DS, but becoming more important for the time being than its other DS Final Fantasy, the Wi-Fi enabled Crystal Chronicles.

                In fact, so important is Final Fantasy III that it demanded a full-blown remake, rather than minor update, which is why the DS platform was selected. Gone are the flat, personality-lacking sprites of the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System original and in their place are solid three-dimensional characters that easily match, if not even surpass in places, those of the legendary Final Fantasy VII from the PSone! Who would have believed it? After the first generation of DS titles, not many that is for sure…But along with Tales of the Tempest from Namco’s Tales Studio and Nintendo’s own Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, the DS is really showing why it was originally touted as being more powerful than the Nintendo 64.

                So, let us start at the beginning, shall we? The storyline has always been an integral part of the Final Fantasy experience, driving the games into the hearts of gamers around the world and whilst the tale for Final Fantasy III may seem slightly basic in comparison to the vast, winding yarns that are weaved nowadays, there is still definitely enough to keep you gripped throughout this epic journey. Plus, each of the characters’ backgrounds and personalities have been developed to deepen the sense of immersion even further. But the main point to focus on is that the original tale has not been tinkered with, and the general ‘feel’ of FFIII on the NES has not been messed around with. So FF purists can straight away breathe a sigh of relief…If anything, it has been ADDED to in order to help build upon the greatness already present. Therefore, via new episodes and events will be used as platforms to develop the characters and their background stories. So we will definitely get to know the three main men and leading lady that form your main party of four.

                But what can we expect from the only Final Fantasy game in the main series to have not been localised for the Western world? Square Enix clearly wanted to do something special with it, so what have we been treated to? Well, for this third instalment, praised by the Japanese as being one of THE finest in the entire series, the Nintendo DS is being pushed much harder than anyone else, bar NST/Retro/Nintendo for Metroid Prime Hunters, has managed to do so far. Originally when FFIII was announced, Square Enix went on record to say that the graphical style would be similar to the revamped GBA ports, which made so many of us nearly break down and cry. Thankfully, though, it turned out that SEx was merely filling our behinds with smoke. Looking at the final result from the direct feed shots that recently emanated from Japan, the game is looking as hot, if not hotter, than the PSone’s classic Final Fantasy VII. Cast your minds back to when the concept renders of FFVII were released for the proposed N64 version (before Sony ‘stole’ the game)…they looked quite amazing, right? Well, that is the level of quality we are getting here on the DS.

                Square Enix treated gamers to wonderful FMV footage in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on the humble Game Boy Advance and now it is set to push the envelope even further as it turns up the heat on the Nintendo DS. This version of FFIII has been confirmed as being fully three dimensional, complete with a moveable camera that activates during events (inside buildings, with a static zoom in / zoom out for in towns), and it will take full advantage of both screens of the DS. The bottom screen will be the one where all the main action takes place, mainly because Square Enix wanted to ensure touch-screen capabilities were incorporated to the fullest extent possible. Gamers will be able to select items, navigate the various menu systems, select various battle commands and so on, all with just the simple touch of the stylus. It has also been stated that whilst in the midst of dungeons, we will not have the benefit of having a map on display, in order to make exploration much more interesting.

                The Producer of Final Fantasy III, Hiromichi Tanaka, recently told Japanese publication Famitsu that the work going into this new project is so different to the GBA FF ports due to the effort being poured into it to make the experience the best possible for us all. He stated that the original NES game was a technical wonder back when released and only now with the power of the DS can justice be done with an update. If players want to play through using just the touch screen they can, and now the even the job system has been reworked for our benefit. There will be twenty-three job classes for the characters to gain, with more balancing in place. For example, in his interview he specifically fingered the role of Viking as being an unpopular choice back in the original. So this time round more thought has gone into how it works. For instance, there will be capacity points that are required to change to certain jobs.

                And of final note is that gamers can now save anywhere they want because of its portable nature, and there are plans to incorporate wireless features, even using Nintendo’s online Wi-Fi Connection service, although details of the plans are currently unknown.
                Oh hell yeas.....

                    E3 2006: Final Fantasy III Hands-on
                    Square Enix reveals the debut of the only Final Fantasy game to not hit these shores.
                    by Craig Harris
                    May 8, 2006
                    - Square Enix held its pre-E3 event in Los Angeles today where the company revealed for the first time the Nintendo DS rendition of Final Fantasy III, the only game in the Final Fantasy series that, up until this point, never received an official English language localization. Prior to its press conference, the company let us sneak backstage to get a hands-on with the Nintendo DS version two days before it hits the company's booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
                    Unlike previous remakes of the Final Fantasy series, the Nintendo DS version of Final Fantasy III isn't offering the old retro appearance of the original. Instead the company is retelling the game's story for a new generation of gamers, using the Nintendo DS system's 3D capabilities and touch screen controls to reintroduce the adventure nearly two decades since it originally hit the Famicom in Japan.
                    The Nintendo DS game is full 3D running at a smooth 30 frames per second, and enables players to fully control the action using the handheld's stylus. If you're a stickler for the classic control, you're free to use the D-pad and button combo throughout this role-playing game, but it's pretty convenient having the ability to wander through the environments, chat, and battle simply by tapping the screen. The game looks better than the original PlayStation version of Final Fantasy VII, and that's saying a lot considering that the first PlayStation Final Fantasy game utilized 3D sparingly with its use of 3D character models on top of prerendered backgrounds.
                    The version at Square's event was clearly tooled for the E3 convention, as the demo begins with a moogle greeting the player to E3. This demo is only a small sampling of the gameplay that will be in the full Final Fantasy III experience - it allows players to do a few random battles and ends with a final boss fight. The fights show off the 3D engine pretty well, and offer up some modest special effects for the attacks and magic elements.
                    The only disappointment so far is the fact that Square Enix is barely using the upper screen. When wandering around the overworld, the top screen is utilized to display a map to show where players are. But during battles and cutscenes, that upper screen remained black. Hopefully as the game progresses in development Square Enix will find some use for that extra display.
                    Hit the link below to check out the early screenshots of the game in action.

                    First word of Square's handheld FF.
                    by Nix
                    May 8, 2006 - At its pre-E3 conference, Square Enix debuted its Wii and Nintendo DS versions of the multiplayer GameCube RPG, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.



                    The DS game will be called Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles -- Ring of Fates. It features four-player gameplay, and a single-player RPG component as well. An online component was mentioned when the game was confirmed at last year's E3, but was not spoken of at this event -- hopefully, Nintendo WiFi Connect will be used to hook up players online as well as offline.
                    Footage of the game was shown, with the same style of art and design as the GameCube title, fully 3D here on the DS from an angled top-down perspective.

                    Check back for official reports from our team live at the Square event.

                    Lots of good news on the Final Fantasy Nintendo front. Hopefully the Crystal Chronicle series will be better than the Cube game. But FF III is all I am really interested in right now. Game looks stellar.

                            FFV & FFVI are both to be released on GBA. No 3D, but standardized to look like the other GBA FF games. Honestly, FFVI was a flawless game to begin with.
