Final Fantasy VI Lands On Japanese PSN On April 20
Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy III; call it what you will. Every veteran role-playing fan on earth knows what it is.
Not long after hearing Square-Enix would deliver Final Fantasy V to the PlayStation Store comes the news that Final Fantasy VI is headed to the digital realm, too. As revealed on the publisher's Japanese Twitter page and reported by IGN, Terra's adventure will land on the PSN on April 20. We don't know when or if the game will be released outside of Japan but considering the sheer amount of fan requests, we'd say there's a darn good chance. Many will claim this entry in the legendary franchise is still the best, although you'll easily find a strong FFVII contingent that often clashes with the more old-school FFVI support. If you're old enough to remember and aren't fully aware of the history, you might know this SNES classic as "Final Fantasy III," 'cuz that's the name it released under in the U.S.
Either way, it's a timeless classic and one you should definitely have in your collection, even if it's only a digital file.
