IGN reports that Sony and Square Enix have announced that Final Fantasy III is coming to the Playstation Portable in Japan. The game will also be compatible with the Playstation Vita, but it is not being developed specifically for this platform. More details are included after the jump.
The game will be an updated port of the 2006 Nintendo DS version of the same game, but running in a 16:9 aspect ratio and including several new features such as”a gallery mode with BGM and illustrations, the option for switching to the original Famicom/NES music, and an auto battle option that doubles the battle speed to two times.”
Final Fantasy III was originally released in 1994, and didn’t make it’s way to Western Territories until it was released for the Nintendo DS in 2006. A Western release for the game on the PSP has not yet been confirmed.
