Squre Enix seems see bright future on Ouya, first Android-based game console, that they decide to bring FF III to it. According to their official spokeperson FF III will be available for Ouya console on March 2013. This is really awesome guys! I was not too optimistic when Ouya presented as cheap Android game console, but now that Square Enix decide to back up the, i start to have some faith on it.
