When it comes to Final Fantasy, Australians have long had to adopt a "better late than never" attitude, with games in the much heralded franchise often taking months longer to arrive on our shores than in the US. Such is the case with Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales for the Nintendo DS, which have just been given May release dates for Down Under--months after their respective releases in the US.
Publisher Ubisoft will be distributing the two titles in Australia, New Zealand, France, Benelux, and the Nordic territories. The Nintendo DS version of Final Fantasy III, which was originally available on the NES 17 years ago, is slated for a May 4 release date. Chocobo Tales has a rough ship date of late May 2007.
Final Fantasy III for the DS was released in the US in November last year, while Chocobo Tales is set for a April 3 release stateside.
