A world once vibrant with the power of magic has plunged into an industrial age, one that has raped the countrysides, disempowered its people, and brought tremendous conflict that has touched every corner of the globe. All the lands are now governed by a corrupt empire, headed by Emperor Gestahl, who uses powerful machines to keep the world at bay.
There is also another weapon, one far more powerful than any conventional powers: a young girl named Terra whose blood is half of the mysterious creatures known as Espers, the last remnants of that magical time so long ago. They have turned her into a biological weapon with their mind-controlling slave crown.
But Terra will slip free of the Empire's grasp and meet up with a young rogue named Locke, a man living with the pain of a lost love who he could not help. Together they will begin an epic journey that will stretch across the land, perhaps even bringing it to its end. But the ultimate question is whether or not the powerful Empire is really the most dangerous threat to the heroes and the world, or if somehow there is a force even more powerful, chaotic, and deadly that is pulling the puppet strings from behind the veil.
So begins Final Fantasy III, known as Final Fantasy VI in Japan, the last domestic Final Fantasy to appear on the Super NES. Final Fantasy III is a role-playing game which spans the course of several years and incorporates sixteen different characters for you to play, each with his or her own back-story and plot. These episodes are introduced into the story as players achieve certain milestones.
The game boasts hours of gameplay and many different locations to explore. Familiar Final Fantasy faces and items make an appearance during the course of the game, from Chocobos and Mogs to airships, masamunes, and other objects. Most of the characters have at least one different and unique skill, such as the ability to do combo power moves, emulate other animals, and capture and summon the powerful Espers hidden around the world, from Bahamut to Ragnarok.
Final Fantasy III also has a magic system similar to other Final Fantasy titles, with basics such as Fire, Ice, Bio, Warp, plus a host of spells new to the franchise. It additionally features two different versions of the same world, before and after a war: The World of Balance and The World of Ruin. Final Fantasy III includes battery backup that allows players to save three different games on the same cartridge. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
