Final Fantasy III Has a Set Date

While most had figured that Square Enix’s remake of Final Fantasy III for the Nintendo DS would be a November release, it hasn’t been confirmed until now. The company officially stated today that Final Fantasy III will be shipping to stores in North America on November 14, just a week before the holiday shopping season will start in earnest.

The epic RPG takes place in a world where crystals that hold the planet together are coming apart. Four adventurers must locate the crystals and fight off the darkness consuming them. The remake gives a new polish of 3D graphics made possible thanks to the DS’s capabilities as well as touch screen and Wi-Fi capabilities.

Advanced Media will have more on this title and other Square Enix fall releases as the month’s progress, so stay tuned for the latest.
