Final Fantasy III has been given a fresh lick of paint in anticipation of an imminent PC release, Square Enix has revealed.

The 1990 JRPG classic makes its way to PC for the first time ever having shifted more than 2 million copies worldwide, this time with a 3D makeover reminiscent of the 2007 DS remake…

Along with improved 3D visuals, the Final Fantasy 3 PC edition comes packing additional story sequences and visual effects for its Job Mastery cards. FFIII is coming exclusively to Steam for now, and of course comes packing the usual Steam trading cards and achievements.

For those unfamiliar with Final Fantasy III, this third instalment centres around the quest of four orphaned youths tasked with restoring balance to the world. The quartet of young warriors must hunt down the four dark elemental crystals in a lengthy quest, and features the usual turn-based combat antics and randomised battles synonymous with early Final Fantasy titles.

There’s no release date to speak of as yet but the store page is already up on Steam ahead of its official release.

Looking forward to taking a peek back at the early days of the Final Fantasy series?

Do you think these recent releases suggest an effort on Square Enix’s part to bring the entire Final Fantasy series over to PC?

Let us know!

This was the only FF I didn't play in PS1..I wonder if it's nice!
The main problem I had with older FF (before FF7) is the gameplay mechanics. I always came across bosses, sometimes even random enemies, that could wipe out my party in a beat or sometimes take ages to kill.
