Final Fantasy V Headed To European PlayStation Store
Just about every Final Fantasy classic from the original PlayStation and Super Nintendo eras is on the PlayStation Store, ready for download.
But thus far, only Japanese gamers have received the rarer and somewhat less popular Final Fantasy V. The game initially never made it to the US, and first saw release in the Final Fantasy Anthology on the PS1, which included FFV and FFVI.
Now, as announced at the European Square-Enix Members site, the digital form of FFV is breaking Japanese boundaries. This version will feature full FMV cut-scenes and of course, that old-school combat with the ATB (Active Time Battle) system. Like other titles, it'll be playable on either your PS3 or PSP and the release date will come in due time. Considering the source, we assume this is only confirmed for Europe but we'd like to take a guess and predict FFV will come to the US Store at some point, too. If you missed out on the great RPGs of the golden age of gaming, there's no excuse for missing them now; many are readily available for download.
Personally, FFV is at the bottom of my list when it comes to the Final Fantasy franchise, but I may be in the minority on that.
