Final Fantasy 5 coming to your PSP (sometime)
Final Fantasy 5, originally released for the Super Nintendo exclusively in Japan has just been rated as a PSoneclassic for the North American Market. This is great news for RPG fans, because slowly but surely we’re getting all the Final Fantasy games released for our cute little PSPs. The game was released on the PSone in 1998 as an individual title, and later released as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology that also housed FF IV and FF VI.
We’re still waiting for Final Fantasy VI to be released of course, after waiting since before the Playstation Network hack back in Spring. There’s no way in telling when this game will be released as is the rub with ESRB ratings. One would expect that soon we’ll be able to play all the final fantasy games on PSN at one point, but don’t hold your breath, at the rate these are going, the PSVita will beat Final Fantasy V to release.
What is Final Fantasy 5 about? Well saving the world of course! But the cool thing about Final Fantasy 5 on the PSone was that they added two new full motion videos, one in the intro and one at the end of the game. Which is a decent little extra of course (especially in those days). This thing sold like a mammoth back in the day, so I’m sure that it will do great on the Playstation Network. It’s a really smart idea for the publishers to release all these old classics for the new systems, because playing these very games is a big reason why people were cracking their PSPs in the first place.
