After the first two instalments in the legendary Japanese series, Final Fantasy III is now available for Android-based devices. It needs to be accessed and played through a simulator, so not a native Android app, but it’s still great news for fans of the genre or younger handheld gamers out there who may have not experienced early FF games back in the day.
Square Enix had Final Fantasty III ported on iOS for some time now. And just like the iOS version, Android-o-sphere version is only available for Japanese devices. We will keep you posted, hopefully Final Fantasy games will have other countries following on Android. You can watch a trailer of the game, in it’s iOS form, here.
In case you enjoyed the old Nintendo version, you should know that the game looks far better in the Android version. Graphics are improved, as are effects. 3D immersion is really good, more so if you own a handheld with a decent-sized screen. You will still get that special feel and melancholy as most characters are recognizable. Square Enix would offer fans in U.S. and Europe a real treat if they exported the game in English for Androids here, as the game had many a fan in the golden gaming days.
