Final Fantasy available on Japanese Virtual Console in May

May's Virtual Console lineup in Japan may be small in number -- just six games -- but it's packed with quality. Most notably, Square Enix's GDC-announced plan to release vintage Final Fantasies on VC starts next month with the obvious choice for the starting point: the first Final Fantasy.

Also very, very cool: SimEarth plus a samurai-themed River City Ransom sequel and the first game in the series that we would come to know as Advance Wars. This one's called Famicom Wars because, you know, it's on the Famicom.
