As we have seen in the recent past whether it is from all the submissions in OUYA’s CREATE competition or just from news from developers making games, OUYA has a lot of developers interested in the Android-powered console. We now have a really big list of confirmed games heading to OUYA which includes some rather big titles like Square Enix’s Final Fantasy III, Adhesive Games’ Hawken and Double Fine’s The Cave and Reds.
Tag: Final Fantasy III
With the upcoming (eventual) release of Final Fantasy IV for Android, I decided it’d be a good time to write up a review for Final Fantasy III. Final Fantasy III has been one of my all-time favorites in the series since the original NES release was translated in the emulation community. It set the ground for the class change system from Final Fantasy V, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and every other game in the series since that gave you the ability to change your character’s class.
It seems like OUYA news always comes in clumps lately and today is no different as we have a few bits of information regarding the Android powered console to go over. First, for those of you who haven’t pre-ordered a unit yet, you can now do so off of Amazon.com and GameStop.com instead of just through the OUYA website.
Right now it seems that every other day the Android running home gaming console OUYA continues to gain strength in its cause and today is no different. Square Enix has announced that it will be releasing Final Fantasy III onto the system and becomes the first major game publisher to announce a game release for OUYA.
We knew today was going to be a good day for gaming news once again but we didn’t expect to wake up to this little gem of a game being on the Google Play store. Actually it isn’t little and as a huge Final Fantasy fan myself, seeing Final Fantasy III on the Google Play store is a good way to start the day.
While the post could be defined as more of an editorial, possibly a rant on my part, news is that Square Enix doesn’t really consider US and European Android gamers as any sort of priority when it comes to their games and releasing them on Android. This comes in light of more popular titles found on the Square Enix Market for Japanese Android users.
As a very big fan of the Final Fantasy franchise from Square Enix, mostly all the games up to Final Fantasy VIII, it was great to see a Final Fantasy title land on Android finally. Unfortunately, as of right now though, it is for residence of Japan only.
