FFIII preview: everything old is new again!

Though we could have used some screens, the Final Fantasy III preview at Gameworld Network does have a few juicy details, plenty to ramp up our already frenzied excitement for this title. For those who've lived and breathed Final Fantasy over the years, the turn-based battle system is old hat, but in this version it's served up with a twist: during battle, you chose every character's actions at the same time. Sounds like it's going to take a little getting used to, but when a game looks this good, we're up to the challenge.

The Gameworld preview gushes over the stylized new look, as expected. It's exciting to see these characters get their own unique faces, stories, and even names for the revamped game. It's a whole new world ....

Final Fantasy III Wi-Fi details [Update 1]

Fuzzy...bon bon thing...Those who have played Final Fantasy IX will vaguely remember a system called "MogNet", in which the player took up the role of carrier between moogles worldwide. There was also something about a purple moogle who used too much hair gel, or something. Whatever.

Anyway, the "MogNet" system will be making a comeback in the updated DS version of Final Fantasy III. In addition to performing said tasks to unlock various side-quests in the single-player game, players will have the ability to send messages via Nintendo Wi-Fi to other players of the game. Don't instant messages seem a little easier, though? If Square-Enix doesn't implement some sort of in-game incentive, it may be a fairly unused feature.

More details are still forthcoming, says Square-Enix, so keep holding your breath for a party vs. party battle system over Wi-Fi. Oh, how we long.

[Thanks, GamingBurrito!]

[LOL. GamingBurrito. Awesome.]
