It turns out that maintaining the balance of light and dark is extremely important for the well being of the world's inhabitants. Who knew, right? Final Fantasy 3's world has an impending balance problem of its own, but it's nothing that a group of young orphans can't fix by banding together, inheriting power from talking crystals and buffing their skill set at the expense of a lot of monsters. Steam users can do all of the above starting on May 27, when Square-Enix brings the RPG to PCs for $15.99.

The Steam version will offer trading cards and achievements, with its store page also boasting "upgraded graphics for PC." Though we'll soon have a choice from the mobile, PC or Nintendo DS versions, it took 16 years for Final Fantasy 3 to reach Europe or North America after its 1990 Japanese debut.
