Final Fantasy III Joins the Ouya


Final Fantasy III

The Ouya, a new console based on Google's Android platform, has been gathering some attention lately, but it hasn't been relevant to this site until now. Square Enix has announced that it will release Final Fantasy III as a launch title for the new console. This will be a port of the mobile version of the game that is currently available on iOS and Android devices, which is itself based on the DS version of the game. The Ouya uses a TV and controller rather than a smartphone or tablet touchscreen, so this new version will use more traditional controls than the touch controls seen in the mobile version. Another change from the mobile version will be the addition of a free demo, so fans will be able to try the game before buying it.

The Ouya is currently being funded by Kickstarter, and more information on it can be found on its Kickstarter page. The Kickstarter project will close on August 8. The console is currently planned for release in 2013.

Square Enix has stated that it is considering titles other than just Final Fantasy III to put on the system. Considering the Ouya's use of the Android platform, it is likely that many of the companies other mobile titles have a good chance of being released on the new console.
