  • Final Fantasy makes it to the SNES Classic Edition pre-installed games lineup.

Nintendo has its SNES classic list of games that make every gamer’s heart start throbbing with sheer thriller intensity. Yet the puzzle regarding the Final Fantasy game remained unresolved in the scheme of this list until a little explanation was forthcoming.

A large number of games are on the Nintendo SNES classic scroll of interactive magic. There are at least close to two dozen games that you can play with glee and gusto. They include within their purview such goodies as: Donkey Kong Country, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Star Fox 2 and Super Mario World. Star Fox 2 is coming to the platform for the very first time. Starting from September 29, 2017, all these games, which amount to 21 in number, will be available with mini console.

A Brief Review of All 21 Games

Final Confusing Fantasy
Somewhere among the games is the Final Fantasy III which seems to be so much gibberish to the American audiences. This is due to a local name change that is the cause of much confusion and chagrin among the game players. In Japan, this game is not called Final Fantasy III. Rather it is termed Final Fantasy VI. This is the best version of the game. Final Fantasy VI has a notorious villain character in it named Kefka. This bad dude set the tone for later shady characters like Sephiroth, Kuja and Seymour. In the mid 90s, this game came to the Land of Opportunity (that would be the United States of America) as Final Fantasy III but actually in Japan it was labeled according to the localization as Final Fantasy VI. Final Fantasy II, III and V were not released in America. So paradoxically and obviously confusingly, Final Fantasy VI became the Final Fantasy III in the Land of Cherry Blossoms (that would of course be none other than Japan).

What is Final Fantasy III Really About?
Eons ago, an evil entity gave birth to Espers that were monsters that went for each other with a vengeance. The wars between them left the world in ruins. These destructive and bloodthirsty beings ended up wiping out all of humankind and themselves as well. The music simply died from the earth. Since then the world has seemed to recover from the plunder and devastation and Espers have been a part of ancient mythology. However, now a frozen solid sample has been dug up by someone. There have been reports of decent law-abiding citizens being harassed by Espers. A dark and powerful magic is once again a part of the equation and the future of humanity is at stake. Who is responsible for this reawakening of an ancient scourge? This game of thrills, adventure and quest(ions) holds everyone in thrall. It is termed Final Fantasy III in the United States but is actually Final Fantasy VI in Japanese territory and lingo.

Glimpses into the Game that is Final Fantasy VI
The enemies are encountered on a random basis on the terrain in this game. There are various maps to guide the players and a war screen and a menu screen. The players get to travel by land, sea and air. As players progress through the ranks, they gain valuable experience and become seasoned aficionados of the game. A large series of characters interact with each other in the theater of war. Plans are followed and plots are hatched. There are intrigues and attempts at psychological warfare too. Some of the graphic details meant for the American audiences were edited later on to censor the blatant female nudity. This game got a warm welcome in Japan. It has been said to be the best video game in the annals of modern history. The legacy this game leaves behind is one of satisfied and adrenalized gamers who cannot get enough of the stimulation and kicks from this wonderful arrangement engendered by the Silicon Revolution.

Final Fantasy III or VI: What Difference Does It Make?
Two decades after the release of FFVI, Terra is shown battling with an evil empire with the totally insane clown Kefka who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Joker in the Batman Series. This is the best of the best as far as video games go and it was originally released on Super Nintendo in 1994 in the US.

The story revolves around the Espers and how they destroyed humanity and themselves. Magic was lost forever. Until one of the Espers is discovered and magic attacks start to happen again. Imperial Commandos launch raids using magic-powered MagiTek weapons. The players have to explore if magic is alive and face against the villain Kefka to restore the balance in the world.

Final Fantasy VI or Final Fantasy III consists of four basic modes of gameplay: an overworld map, town and dungeon field maps, a battle screen, and a menu screen. These modes of gameplay help the players navigate and engage combat and exploration modes. Customization options allow the gamers to deploy different weapons and tactics. The gamers can also use magic spells and counter charms to fight against the forces of Kefka. Gamers can also use magicite to summon espers.

The Final Fantasy III game was redesigned for the North American and European market. Matrix Revolution and Square Enix collaborated to redesign the 1990 version for a modern gameplay for Nintendo. The game was a big hit.

It was released at a time when gamers wanted Nintendo to have a role-playing game. The gamers insisted that instead of designing a new game, developers could just get some old game up to the pass. Final Fantasy III which is also known as Final Fantasy VI was chosen to be the game everyone wanted and it worked.

It has been hailed as the best game in the Final Fantasy series. It incorporates majority of the successful features from the prior games. It was a major success when it came out on Nintendo DS.

IGN noted that "interest in FFIII should come as no surprise given...the popularity of the DS. The game sold 500,000 units within the first week in Japan, beating Square Enix's original prediction that they would only sell 350,000.”

GamePro rated it 5 out of 5, stating that "characters, plotlines, and multiple-choice scenarios all combine to form one fantastic game!"

Having done so well on the Nintendo DS, it makes sense that Final Fantasy III should be among the games featured on the SNES. With its superior graphic quality and play modes, SNES will bring a refreshing breath to the Final Fantasy III gameplay. The game is venturing into the 3D realm as well.

SNES will help Nintendo revise the games high quality resolution and allow the gamers to play a superior level of game that has never been played before in the Final Fantasy history.
