What a coincidence! Final Fantasy 3
was just released for Android
, and now Square Enix has announced a version for the rapidly Kickstarting Ouya
console, bringing the game full circle from its console (Famicom) roots. That development took Final Fantasy 3 through a circuitous path of "console to handheld to phone to phone to console."
"This will be the first time gamers outside of Japan can play FFIII on their televisions through a console," the Ouya team points out. It's also the first support for the unreleased console from a major publisher. We expect to see other big names follow suit in porting their Android games to the console.
