Square Enix Is Bringing Final Fantasy III To The Ouya

Well this is a bit of a surprise, isn’t it? It would seem that the Ouya (the Kickstarter Android-based console) has found it’s first big partnership with Square Enix and their Final Fantasy series. The news comes from an update posted to the Ouya’s Kickstarter page.

The Ouya version of the game (should I get used to saying that?) will be a launch title for the system next March and will be updated to take advantage of the Ouya’s tech to make it look better than ever. The post notes that this will mark the first time that people outside of Japan can play FFIII on a console and that those who aren’t yet sold on the idea of buying FFIII for their Ouya can play a demo of it when the time comes. Neat, I guess. Though I have to wonder if Final Fantasy III has already been played by all of the people that wanted to play it.

Regardless, the Ouya seems to be picking up speed and continuing to surprise people along the way. Who would’ve thought that Square Enix of all people would bring their games to the Ouya? Kinda makes you wonder what other developers/publishers are going to make their way to the Ouya.

 

Kyree didn't have an N64 or Dreamcast as a kid (so sad) and he doesn't remember finishing any of his PlayStation games, but skip to the PS2/GC/Xbox era and everything changed. He hasn't been outside to play tag in forever, but he can recall playing way too much Smash Bros. and even more Kingdom Hearts; seriously, he can recite lines from it. I think he may have a problem.

This is a HUGE showing of support for the Ouya.  There may be something to this yet.  That being said, Eidos, Atari, Vivendi/Universal and Codemasters all pledged their support for the Phantom console, too...
