    With little brother PsVita being on the scene you would have thought the original PSP would be enjoying its days in retirement but Square-Enix is keen to pump some more life into it with another Final Fantasy port, this time of the Nintendo DS remake which was released back in 2006. This version was also ported to IOS with improved graphics and full touchscreen controls, details also suggest that the soundtrack can be switched from the newer arrangement to the original Famicom soundtrack. The game is set to launch in Japan on September 20 at both retail and on SEN​



    seems a strange time to be putting it on the psp but im sure some will get a kick out of it, i guess it could come out digitally for the rest of the world

    Also I already own the DS version, no point buying the same game again.

    I'm just going to keep telling myself that they'll hit 5 and 6 eventually...

    Small life signs?
    If the PSP has small life signs, then the Vita is flatlining.

    Last week's sales:
    PSP: 10,547
    PSV: 7,551

    PSP games are all over the top 50, too. Vita... nowhere to be found

    Edit: Okay what the hell, this is just a port of the DS version from, like, 2004.

    Well that's dumb.

    Probably JPN only and there's much better FF games than Final Fantasy III.

    leave it to the psp to get ports of DS games from 2004 but cant blame them after the psp sells more that the Vita for what i seen the charts so they are still trying to cash on it so well good for them

    I really don't see the point in it. FFIII DS came out in 2006, so why port a six year old DS game over to the PSP? And why port over FFIII DS, yet give the FFIV Complete Collection horribly ugly RPG Maker sprites instead porting FFIV DS? Bah... This is really all kinds of stupid, yet it'll sell relatively well for a full retail release.

    It's like Square spilled and made a mess of a port.

    FFIV DS looked like absolute garbage. It's hard to have a darker toned, serious story when you have kawaii~ models talking about dark, complex stuff. FFIV CC just used updated sprites that looked better than the original SNES or GBA versions and also included more content. It was more authentic than the crappy DS version.
