Description Edit | History

ADMIN NOTE: Numbering

Not to be confused with the US release "Final Fantasy III", which is actually Final Fantasy VI

  • Canonically this is the third Final Fantasy game.
  • The North American release, titled Final Fantasy III, is actually Final Fantasy VI.
    • Neither Final Fantasy II or Final Fantasy III were initially released outside Japan, so Final Fantasy IV in North America was released as Final Fantasy II.
    • Final Fantasy V was also not initially released outside Japan, so Final Fantasy VI in North America was released as Final Fantasy III.
    • The US Final Fantasy releases were correctly numbered starting with the PSX releases.

From the game box:
A divine balance is disturbed as darkness encroaches on the world, and four chosen youths are entrusted with the final vestiges of hope.

User summary:
Final Fantasy III was the third and last FF installment for the NES. It was originally never released in the US. FFIII features a job-changing system, where the players could revert the player characters into warriors, mages, thieves etc, mid-game. However, the characters needed to stay in one class during a certain number of battle before being able to change again. The dark atmosphere from FFII is replaced with a light fantasy story regarding the restoration of nature's balance through the finding of the four crystals.

Individual credits:
Hironobu Sakaguchi: Director
Nobuo Uematsu: Music
Yoshitaka Amano: Character & monster design
