On April 27th, 1990, Final Fantasy III hit the Nintendo Famicom across Japan. While it didn’t receive an official English release until well over a decade later via the Nintendo DS remake, it was a smash hit in its home region, and has had an impact on the franchise ever since.
One of the ways the game has stuck around is through its music, because it contains more than a few iconic tunes that have cropped up since, especially in the MMO Final Fantasy XIV. Fittingly, Square Enix is using a handful of these tracks to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the game, bringing the Final Fantasy III -Four Souls- vinyl to North America and Europe later this month.
Original tracks and some new arrangements are included, as well as download codes so you can listen to the tunes sans record player. Check out a few of the tracks in the teaser below:
2020 marks 30 years since the launch of #FinalFantasy III, and we're celebrating the occasion with a brand-new vinyl record!
It includes newly arranged versions of songs from the 30-year classic, as well as the original tracks.
