Final Fantasy III is the third FF game from Square. Final Fantasy III was released in 1990 for the Famicom. A remake was done in 2006 where the entire game was redone in 3D chibi style, and this was later ported to a lot of other platforms including the PSP. I played the PSP version of FFIII.
This is follow up to this years parents’ days posts, and last month’s Favorite Moms. This month, it is Top 10 of my favorite dads from games!
Final Fantasy II is sequel to successful Final Fantasy. It was released in 1988 in Japan on the NES/ Famicon by Square Soft and did not come to North America until 2003 on Playstation. I had the chance to play the PS1 remaster of the game, so I was not able to play the extra dungeon that came with the PSP remaster, for a game that no one talks about, this one got a lot of remasters.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, here are some terrible moms in gaming. Not gonna, lie, this one was hard since most mothers in games are either dead, dying, or angelic. I took some liberties… I hope you are okay with that.
Because nature of this topic, there will be spoilers ahead.
So this is a demo. The reason why I am talking about this is because my quick research shows that this takes place before the main game.
“Bless the Crystals!”
Final Fantasy was originally released by Square Soft in 1987. This is the game that started it all, the original Final Fantasy. The original version of the game was made for the NES, then it was ported to, let me see here, PS1, PSP, iOS, PC, MSX, Wonder Swan, Gameboy Advance, Mobile Phones, and 3DS, so a lot of different platforms. I played the PS1 version on my PS Vita.
What is in a name? The game was titled Final Fantasy because it was the last chance for success before bankruptcy for Square Soft and potentially being fired for Sakaguchi Hironobu. It really was the final dream for a company, and I am glad the title is ironic at this point. This is the beginning to fantastic world of Final Fantasy.
“Turn those corners up!”
World of Final Fantasy is a love letter, more closely fan service, from Square Enix to long time players. What I mean by that is has cameos from all the heroes from the past Final Fantasy games helping you out. The game was released world wide for PS4 and PS Vita on October of 2016. I played my version on my PS4.
I have not played FFXII yet, so we are skipping to FFXIII…
Final Fantasy XIII is Square Enix’s debut to the new generation of gaming. FFXIII was released on December of 2006 for PS3 and Xbox 360, and was later ported to PC in 2014. The version I played were on PS3, and since it was on sale, the PC port.
This is not to be confused with Final Fantasy XII.
Final Fantasy X-2 came out in Japan in 2003 and rest of the world in 2004 on the Playstaion 2. It is once again made by Square / Square Enix. Then it was remastered for the PS3 and PS Vita in 2013, and was ported to PS4 in 2015. And the PC version was released in 2016. The version I played was on the PS4.
Well…. this is going to be a short one.
FFX Eternal Calm is a very short video that bridges the gap between Final Fantsy X and Final Fantasy X-2. It is about 15 minutes long. FFX Eternal Calm was included in FFX International version which was released in Japan back in 2002.
