    Final Fantasy III iOS to Have a Simultaneous Release

    The enhanced iOS port of Final Fantasy III DS will be out sometime later this month all around the world. You'll be able to play it in your language, whether you speak English, Nihongo, Espa˝ol, Italiano, Franšais, Deutsch, or the many varities of HÓnyǔ.

    While it was good on the DS, they shouldn't have made it 3D. Looks absolutely horrid. Just play the PSP re-releases of FF1/FF2/FF4 and you'll see what I mean. 2D graphics maintain their age better than 3D on a crappy portable (when done right).

    This is one Ipod game I might just buy. I normally don't buy ipod games unless they are a buck or less but this might be worth it. Played FF3 a bit on 'Cat's DS but I'd like to have a copy of my own.

    I might pick this one up, but I have to finish Crimson Gem Saga first.

    That is my thought too. The 2D is so much better than that ugly 3D. Hard to care too much though, it's just an iPhone release.

    Yes I see what you mean if that was the PSP produces better graphics than the DS. If FFIII DS had been on a PSP then it could have looked almost as good as something like Kingdom Hearts BBS.


    But otherwise it would be unfair to compare those examples against FFIII DS, you really should have chosen more realistic examples like Dragon Quest IV DS, or The World Ends with You.

    (And I have no idea about iOS and whether the graphics have been suitable enhanced for its 3d capabilities.)

    I think what Storino is saying is that they should have gone the high-res 2D route, like the PSP FF1/2/4 remakes.
