Final Fantasy III Pixel Remaster launches July 28 on Steam
Previously Final Fantasy III has only seen an official release in the West as a polygonal remake. The "Pixel Remaster" edition is presented in a sprite-based format reminiscent of the Game Boy Advance ports, while also adopting a widescreen display. Planned features include a fast-forward option, bestiary and music player, as well as onscreen mini-maps of dungeons and towns.
The newly arranged "Eternal Wind" by series composer Nobuo Uematsu can be previewed on YouTube. Character sprite art for the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series is overseen by pixel artist Kazuko Shibuya. The digital soundtrack for the 8-bit NES and Japanese Famicom console release of Final Fantasy III is available for streaming on Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited.
Vinyl record "Final Fantasy III: Four Souls" ships domestically through the Square Enix store for North America.
