Square Enix has revealed that its classic RPG Final Fantasy 3 is coming to Android-based console Ouya at launch.
The game will be “fully optimized” for the mould-breaking console, and, as per requirements for all games on the system, a free demo will be available to download.
FF3 is already available on Android devices as a port of the 2006 DS rehash rather than a simple conversion of the original.
While this mightn’t have the impact of new IP, a sequel to a recent game or a rehash of something released on current-gen living room consoles, it’s pretty significant to see such a huge publisher showing some support for what’s a fairly unusual system.
Last week brought news of a partnership between OnLive and Ouya, which effectively renders hundreds of games playable on the console providing the user’s connection speed can meet the demand.
Ouya was launched via a Kickstarter pledge and is still making money ever after way surpassing the original $950,000 goal and making it up to $5.8 million. Eight days still remain.
