Final Fantasy III is a top-tier game in the history of console video games. Ever since it was released for the Nintendo Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994, Final Fantasy III has emerged as a classic role-playing game. Featuring job class changes and an unforgettable story, the game surely stands out as one of the best of its kind.
The basics of Final Fantasy III revolve around players exploring a vast world filled with dungeons, monsters and treasures. In order to progress, players have to battle through these creatures and receive experience points along the way. These points can then be used to level up characters, who can eventually unlock new job classes with unique abilities and skills to further customize your party.
The job class system is arguably one of Final Fantasy III’s greatest features; with 20 jobs that span from archers to summoners to fighters, players can get creative with their party compositions depending on the situation at hand. With this versatility, no two playthroughs are ever quite alike.
The story follows four orphans who are bestowed mysterious magical powers known as “Espers”. With these powers they must save their world from destruction by an ancient evil force known as “Xande”. Along their journey they must battle against monsters, visit various towns filled with NPCs (non-playable characters) and explore numerous dungeons in order to find Xande’s lair and defeat him for good.
Beyond its gripping plotline, Final Fantasy III also offers plenty of side-quests throughout; ranging from helping townsfolk to seeking out rare items that offer permanent stat boosts upon completion.
