Well, it’s certainly been a long time coming, friends, but after many, MANY years of patient (and not so patient) waiting, Nintendo is finally releasing Final Fantasy VI on the US Virtual Console this week. Of course, to keep it consistent for us here in the the states, they were kind enough to keep its original release title, Final Fantasy III when it goes up for download.
But who cares about what they call it? The US Virtual Console is finally getting one of (and arguably THE) best RPGs ever released for the Super Nintendo. As stated, the game is set to launch this week and will set buyers back a simple 800 Wii points.
Along with this, the DS eShop will also be receiving some nice new goodies as well. Kirby’s Dream Land will be landing in the shop the same time as Final Fantasy III, as well as a new DSiware game, The Lost Town.
So start saving up those points, because it looks like the Wii isn’t going to retire quietly, and the DS eShop seems to be picking up steam. Here’s hoping for some more neglected classics hitting our shores sometime in the near future!
