‘Optimized’ version of Final Fantasy III coming soon to Steam

Posted on May 9, 2014 AT 07:06am

An “optimized for PC” version of Final Fantasy III is coming to Steam soon, Square Enix has announced.

“Protected by the crystals of light, the once peaceful land has forever been changed by the great tremor,” the publisher explains. “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.”

The game, first released in Japan in 1990, features new and improved 3D visuals and story sequences, new visual designs for Job Mastery Cards, upgraded graphics, achievements, and support for Steam Trading Cards.

Square Enix didn’t offer an official release date, simply stating that it is “coming soon.”
