Nintendo Store Update: Final Fantasy III

Latest update headlined by Wii Virtual Console getting Super Nintendo version of Final Fantasy VI as 3DS retro shop welcomes Kirby's Dream Land.


No Caption Provided Though Nintendo has "no plans" to bring Xenoblade to North America, Wii-owning lovers of role-playing games might be happy to know a Super Nintendo classic is headlining this week's additions to the console's downloadable storefront.

Leading the charge today is Final Fantasy III (800 Wii points, or $8) for the Virtual Console. Originally released on the SNES, the game--known as Final Fantasy VI in Japan--has players discovering who or what is behind of the redeployment of magical creatures known as Espers.
