Excerpt: Final Fantasy VI Advance is actually Final Fantasy III from the SNES (Super Nintendo). Before Squaresoft, and Enix merged Squaresoft did not release all of the Final Fantasy games in America, thus the numbering got off. This RPG (role playing game) is considered one of the classics by many. For those unfamiliar with what a role playing game is - it is a longer video game that tells a story. The player tries to save the fantasy world from a great evil.
Excerpt: Thirteen years ago one of the greatest games, Final Fantasy VI , graced mankind with its presence on the SNES. This year, an equally important milestone is set in place as that same classic game is resurrected and ported to the GBA as Final Fantasy VI Advance . For the first time ever, gamers can now take one of the most beautiful, memorable, and widely celebrated games with them wherever they go.
Excerpt: The Game Boy Advance is bidding the RPG world farewell with the release of what will most likely be its last RPG, Final Fantasy VI Advance . Many played this game years ago when it was first released in North America under the title Final Fantasy III for the SNES. For those that missed out the first time, they were given another chance as it was packed into the PlayStation compilation, Final Fantasy Anthology .
Excerpt: Square Enix finishes porting the trilogy of Final Fantasy games, originally for the Super Nintendo, to the handheld with the release of Final Fantasy VI Advance . Final Fantasy VI was originally released in North America as Final Fantasy III in 1994. Many of today's gamers' first experience with the Final Fantasy series began with Final Fantasy VII three years later. These releases give gamers a chance to see what the series was like before the jump to three dimensions.
Excerpt: When they decided to release Final Fantasy VI in North America, executives at Squaresoft felt like it would be too confusing to account for all of the games that didn't make it out of Japan, and consequently called the series' next installment Final Fantasy III . Unfortunately, they didn't foresee the inevitable confusion that would occur once non-Japanese gamers started hearing about the games in between what they knew as numbers II and III.
Excerpt: Nintendo and Square Enix have saved the best for last. After bringing enhanced ports of four of the first five Final Fantasy games to the Game Boy Advance, it's time for the last of the 2D Final Fantasy games to make the transition. Final Fantasy VI was first released in the US in 1994 as Final Fantasy III, but regardless of what you want to call it, this game is an unequivocal masterpiece and is arguably the pinnacle of the series.
Pros: Large cast of unique characters, Compelling story, Fantastic soundtrack, Excellent-looking graphics, artwork, and world design, Lengthy campaign full of interesting quests, dungeons, and side stories
Excerpt: Nintendo has been touting the latest port of Final Fantasy VI (for their GBA handheld) as the "definitive Final Fantasy experience." Many a petty flame war has started since the invention of the Internet and message boards over just this topic. Generally, when arguing over a "best" Final Fantasy, top contenders include VI, which ended the Nintendo era, and VII, which began the Sony era.
Excerpt: Let's go back in time to a simpler era, where games were limited to 16-bits and gamers had to use their imaginations to augment the graphical details, or lack thereof. This was the world Final Fantasy VI was born into (originally titled Final Fantasy III when it was first released in America in 1994) as it took the RPG world by storm.
