iPhone port of DS remake of Famicom Game

Today via their official youtube channel SquareEnix unveiled this trailer for Final Fantasy III on the iPhone. Final Fantasy III originated the fierce clothes changing Job System which has been an irregular though well known aspect of the franchise as a whole. This port of the pre-historic era 2006 DS remake will have a simultaneous worldwide release via iTunes in eight, count 'em, eight different languages starting tomorrow.

That's right, tomorrow! So if you've been hankering for something a bit more substantial to do in between dates with your Mini Gay Boyfriend, this might just be the title for you!

Actually, the Job System has been around since the very first game in the series. It allowed you to choose jobs for your characters, which then were upgraded later on in the game. FFIII was the first in which you could change jobs at will from the menu screen, if that's what you mean.

Also, strike-through text is very distracting. Consider this an appeal to cease its use.

I am really really disinterested at playing games like this on my phone. If they started optimizing these for tablets (ok, let's not kid ourselves, the iPad) however, I might start getting very interested, very quickly.

What ever happened to the Final Fantasy Tactics iPad port? That is so far the only thing that has actually gotten me seriously interested in an iPad (or the prospect of gaming on a platform running a mobile OS).

Um, no. The first game did let you pick classes, but you were effectively that class for the entire game, just like many (most) RPGs that came before it. If you consider what is in the original Final Fantasy to be "the Job System", then Dungeons and Dragons invented "the Job System".

What actually differentiates the "Final Fantasy Job System" from a basic RPG class system is the ability of a character to switch jobs somewhat freely, and usually use some subset of the abilities learned on their previous jobs when they switch. I'm not actually sure FFIII was the first game ever made that let you swap classes easily, but as far as the "Final Fantasy Job System" is concerned it is the start.

I love the strikethrough text, and think it fits fairly well with the occasionally-snarky tone of the site. Please continue its use.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
