Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Famicom title, Square Enix's Four Souls vinyl record includes original music and newly arranged tracks from Final Fantasy III. Arrangements for the vinyl release are by YUTAKA, Rei Yamashita, Tomoyuki Asakawa, Seiji Igusa and Yuki Kishida.

A polygonal remake of Final Fantasy III debuted on the Nintendo DS in 2006, later receiving ports for mobile phones, Windows and PlayStation Portable. Arranged music for the title was overseen by Tsuyoshi Sekito and Keiji Kawamori. The Music Blu-Ray "FINAL FANTASY I・II・III Revival Disc," published in Japan in 2018, archived the soundtracks of the original 8-bit Famicom trilogy. Excerpts are streaming on YouTube.

The Four Souls vinyl record's four included tracks, present in both their original and arranged forms, are "Eternal Wind," "Crystal Tower," "Battle 2" and "Elia, Maiden of Water." The analog record goes on sale on November 18 in Japan and is available for pre-order in North America. The digital edition of the Final Fantasy III Famicom score by series composer Nobuo Uematsu is streaming on Apple Music.
