Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Final Fantasy III". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.


The plot page is much to short. Could someone who's played the game include further details? Instead of ending with "this is only the beggining" you should continue with what happens after that. The other one's have far more detailed plot pages.

Might I recommend (I have no affiliation with that site.) Obviously I'm not suggesting copying it verbatim, but it might be useful in summarizing the plot. -- Dez 19:06, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

DS versions own page. Edit

I wonder. Since the DS was not the original game re-relaesed but a complete overhall with severl new additions. Should it get its own page? Anyone else have any suggestions? -RedFalcon

I'm going to say no, because that could create potential problems in the future. Never know when Square will remake another game (I & II are getting even more remakes for example). Diablocon 09:41, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Story Addition Edit

I majorly updated the story section. I'm about half way done, but if anyone wants to complete it for me or revise it so its shorter go ahead. Personally I think having the complete story laid out is a good thing because this is suppose to be an "all Final Fantasy inclusive" wiki.

Great work! I wouldn't have been able to make that much out of FFIII's story. And long ones are good, just look at mine on FFVIII's article. Keep it up. --Auron Kaizer 05:36, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

I just realised that III is one of the few (if not only) games where the Americans got a plain white BG & Europe got a pic; normally its the other way round.


All FFIII articles (Gulgan/Gurgan, Onion Knight/Onion Kid...) include names from a fan translation. I think that we can't count fan translations. These names are incorrect, created by a fan. For example, Gurgan is incorrect, like Ghurgan or Goolgan. The only official name is Gulgan. Can we include "invented" names? --Sinh 19:30, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Final Fantasy III for PS Edit

If anyone has any information on the creators thoughts on a PS version of this game, be it rumors or comments, I think it should be added to the article. I do hope that there will be an international console release so that I and many others can complete their collection for the playstation series. //A-Gen

It won't be because the PlayStation is OLD. Games aren't made for it anymore; they are however purchasable in PS online stores for PS3s. That's the only way FFIII for PS is gonna happen.  I Lion Heart I 16:24, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
There's no way that there's gonna be a remake for the PS. It was made something like more than 10 years ago, and there's already been a release for the DS recently. SE only makes remakes every 10-15 years after the last newest version (besides I and II). ScatheMote 16:28, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I was just thinking as they released Origins 3 years after the release of PS2 the hope for a PS version och FF3 was not entirely dead. That gap in the collection is really an annoying one ;/ //A-Gen

FFIV: The After does not say The Creator destroyed FFIII's dark worldEdit

Please see the relevant translations and discussion on the matter at the FFV Article's talk page.

The trivia is inaccurate and misleading. 20:09, 5 March 2009 (UTC)Makoeyes

Gameplay of ending?Edit

So, I'd like to add somewhere that the last 5ish hours of the game don't allow saving (a la the ending in FFX?). Where would this work in the article? Mckaysalisbury 20:53, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Trivia ?Edit

Couldn't it be mentioned that the nameless warrior is similar in appearance to the Onion Knight from Dissidia, along with the sword trivia? I wouldn't say exactly so, but the long ponytail, the number of gems around his hairline, along with having the same yellow sword... Chiit0h 04:08, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

(I just love crushing old comments into dust, don't I :P?) That's already been added into Luneth's page, and Onion Knight's design is based off of Luneth, so... (I'll let you fill out the blanks.) 20:03, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

iPhone Version Edit No word yet if it's being remade, the DS version, or the NES version. Andres 18:05, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

apparently its the DS version going to iOS SE being inconsistent again with 2D 2D 3D...--Spira 18:32, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

Why not PSP? Edit

About FF3 I love this game but it wasn't until I heard about FF4 Complete Collection for the PSP I realized the fact they completely skipped 3. I am like... Square purposely jumped from 2 to 4 it almost seems like they really don't like this game being re-released. I mean it took what? 15 years to bring it to the DS...?

I thought maybe they had an exclusive deal with Nintendo, or maybe they thought it was too much trouble reusing Luneth and Refia etc... (I assume if they were going to make a PSP version they might want go back to the classic default Onion Knight characters but since Luneth, Arc, Ingus and Refia are canon now...) But for whatever reason they completely skipped this game I just want to know... why?

I personally love the sprites for 1 and 2 PSP because just the sleekness of them makes the game feel cozy. And missing out on so many jobs sprites to use is kind of annoying. Passing up on another remake to such a great game feels just wrong, especially with all those people who live in america and don't play DS.

Is there a fanmade translation for the NES? I don't want to buy a Nintendo DS just for this game 07:54, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Only on emulators. sorry. Moogleknight24 09:17, July 24, 2011 (UTC)Moogleknight24

FF3 DS version is also on iOS if you have one.

(.....Nobody answered my question..... I guess no-one knows why it isn't on the PSP) Moogleknight24 12:20, July 24, 2011 (UTC)Moogleknight24

Looks like it's coming to the PSP. Source: Fenrir9 21:02, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Sadly, as much as I'd like to believe that, I can't. Because from what I heard PSP is already dead to Sony. It's all "vita" now. They even stopped production on PSP's from what I heard. Maybe I'm wrong? Moogleknight24 21:18, June 10, 2012 (UTC)Moogleknight24

Yes, you are. It's a magazine scan, it's been reported on other sites. Not a question of believing or not... Doreiku Kuroofangu 21:21, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Since I last replied I checked Gamefaqs and even they confirmed it. For someone who is desperate to get this game on PSP I sure sound like I don't want it :-/ But anyway... JOY!!! Moogleknight24 21:23, June 10, 2012 (UTC)Moogleknight24

Color me unimaginably disappointed. It's a PSP release of the DS version, not the glorious 2D PSP versions we got for FFI, II, and IV. I find myself trying hard to care about this. I wanted to see crisp, 2D sprites, not the blocky, ugly 3D things we got in the DS version. I saw that once, and while it was a welcome release where there hadn't been any official FFIII release before, it was enough the first time. It's a crying shame, and inexplicable, since they didn't do this with FFIV PSP. Oh, and here's the official site, in case there's any doubt - Espritduo 12:07, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

PSP Release Edit

I saw a trailer about it on Square's official YouTube channel. There isn't gameplay or anything yet, but there was a release date 9.20.2012.Tetraninja321 08:57, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

ORLY? Doreiku Kuroofangu 09:16, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
What the hell was that answer? Mister Tonberry 09:20, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
I believe it was a "Look 5cm up the page" answer. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:35, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, there is another section about the PSP-section. But the release date and the youtube-vid wasn't yet told so I believe 'ORLY?' was quite unnecessary. Not raging or anything, just didn't understand the answer. Mister Tonberry 09:50, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

A Question Concerning the Scholar Edit

I've always wondered, why is the Scholar lised as a physically-oriented class :/? Aren't they magically oriented? They can cast magic (in the DS/iOS versions only), their Intelligence is their highest stat, and their special weapons, books, which can only be equipped by Scholars and Onion Knights, boost Intellect and Mind. How in name of Sephiroth's mother is this job not magically-oriented? 17:59, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

I'd never thought about that...however, it's been some time since I've played III, so I can't remember myself. If you think the wrong info has been put in, feel free to change it. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:12, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
I guess it's off to editing then! I shall be back in around three days, in time for the Terminan Apocalypse :D! ... Why did I just reference Majora's Mask O.O? 18:23, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Done! I've edited the orientation of the Scholar and it's now in the Magic-orientation! And best of all, the moon isn't falling... yet... 18:32, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Good to hear the looming face won't be squashing us anytime soon. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:38, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it is :D. That buys me more time to search for the Gilgamesh mask! ... How in the heck did I get from editing articles for the better of the Wiki to predicting when a celestial body with a nightmare-fueled face will come crashing down on us? Anyway... If it does happen, at least I know where my Ocarina is! At the bottom of the bed, collecting dust while playing a somber, melancholical tune while I sleep :P! 19:36, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Kool-Aid Man: Oh, yeah! [Ouya] Edit

OMG!! XD I'm so excited about Final Fantasy III finally coming to the console in its original resolution (despite the fact that it's getting better graphics). I read that this game is described as the "missing piece." If that's true than this gives us one more reason to look forward to this game. =) --Ethanthegamer (talk) 03:48, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Japanese Version with English Option for TextEdit

Good news, if NA doesn't bring it over. You can always import it. PSP are region free, right? Source: Fenrir9 (talk) 20:23, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Warriors' gender in the NES version. Edit

I think they are all male. There is a line if dialog from the Japanese version that uses the word "shounen" meaning "boys" to refer to them. Here's a picture. The first sentence says "the boys received the crystal's light."--PN8 (talk) 23:51, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

Reason for Differences Edit

I've been wondering why there's so little character development in the DS version and why all the weapons/armor are different. According to here, they didn't use most of the text and weapon/armor list was just copied from another game. Should we include any of this info on any of the pages. -- 00:33, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Job maths Edit

How was the number 8,855 arrived at for the number of different party configurations? With 4 characters and 23 jobs I arrive at a value of 23^4 = 279,841. Even if we're only looking at "essentially different" parties (i.e. if we view Warrior-Warrior-Thief-Monk as being the same as Warrior-Thief-Warrior-Monk) then I arrive at a value of 14,950. I cannot, for the life of me, see how 8,855 is achieved. 18:20, July 24, 2014 (UTC)

It has been calculated (23 x 22 x 21 x 20) / (4 x 3 x 2 x 1) = 8855. How do you calculate 14,950? :) (I am not the one who did the original math. I used this maths guide.)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:55, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
That's the number of combinations ignoring repetitions. Essentially that's the number of combinations you'd get if you couldn't have two characters be the same class. We want to include the possibility of repetitions to allow the example I gave above. I won't go into the proof (although it can be found here) but the number we actually need to calculate is (23 + 4 - 1)!/(23 - 1)!4! = 14,95088.211.95.121 18:20, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
Nice. :) Thanks.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:24, July 24, 2014 (UTC)

remake titlesEdit

Regarding the subsequent remakes in 3D like which appears to even have 3D cinematics too like the DS do we have unique titles referring to these titles? You see unique names on the Kingdom Hearts wiki for example for their remakes for different ports.

Is it something like Final Fantasy III DS or Final Fantasy II PC ? I would be interested in reading articles about the changes made in each distinct port, or if they don't get entire new articles, unique titles redirecting to subsections on the game's page describing such differences. talk2ty 20:46, September 3, 2018 (UTC)

From what I understand, most of the differences should be covered on the Version differences page, but it appears that III doesn't have one. Most of the ports after the DS remake only have minor differences anyway, the most significant being changing how the Mognet quests are unlocked. It's not like the I, II or IV remakes which usually throw in something extra with each port. Still thrown off by the page not being there though.--ExitDoor 62 (talk) 01:15, September 4, 2018 (UTC)
The 3D versions of FFIII and FFIV (and after years?) should have separate articles really, but it's a big project to do so no one has wanted to start. At least with FFVIIR we can do it that way since the start. You could make a Final Fantasy III version differences article if you want.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 02:22, September 4, 2018 (UTC)
I'll get around to it. It seems odd that it just kinda got forgotten considering it's probably one of the more necessary pages given the sheer amount of differences between the versions. On a similar note, the dummied out text also needs to be looked into, but that's gonna be even more of a nightmare considering it's all in Japanese (I've been using a online translator, but the stuff I've been finding has been pretty significant, as you'd probably know from my edits).--ExitDoor 62 (talk) 02:56, September 4, 2018 (UTC)
No one's really played it much here, sadly. If the mobile/PC/etc versions also have differences to the DS version, I think a version differences page for FFIII is a good idea. If there are no differences there, then maybe not, because the 3D version is like a whole new game rather than a "version" of the NES one. But there are graphics differences and the DS online features were discontinued, right. If anything was censored between versions, that's another thing.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 03:08, September 4, 2018 (UTC)
They have differences, but it varies. The mobile and Steam version mostly makes it so that the Mognet quest is tied more towards Beastiary completion, skipping the wifi component. The PSP version appears to have more significant changes though, like an Auto-battle function, an art gallery and the ability to switch between the remake and Famicom soundtracks.--ExitDoor 62 (talk) 21:23, September 4, 2018 (UTC)
