Originally released in late 1987 for the Nintendo Family Computer in Japan, the original Final Fantasy game became a major turning point for Square. Facing the imminent threat of bankruptcy, this game was intended to be the company's swansong but unexpectedly turned out to be successful enough to keep the company afloat.

The game received a complete makeover in 2000, when it was re-released in Japan for the ill-fated WonderSwan Color. Subsequent rereleases of this game were based on this remake.

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Square Enix released an official novelisation of the game written by Umemura Takashi. This book, titled Memory of Heroes, marked the first and only time the Four Warriors of Light were given names. These are as follows:

Zest, the Warrior
Sauber, the Thief
Floe, the White Mage
Daewoo, the Black Mage

Can't say I'm very excited about this mini console though. Other companies like SEGA and SNK have been doing this for years and people dismissed it as cheap and tacky - yet now Nintendo is receiving praise for doing the same. But I digress, I'm glad that this at least marks the first time the NES version of the game is officially released in Europe! I wouldn't mind the 3DS version of Final Fantasy receiving a physical release in the west. They could always bundle it something else.

Anyway, I was happy to learn about the Four Warriors of Light being given canon names and jobs. Can't believe it took me four years to find out about it! But it made me want to replay the game again based on this novella.

There is no 3ds version....the only 3DS Final Fantasy game is Explorers....

OH and it was on Famicom first, not NES. Even though both are the same version.

You do realize the Famicom is really just the Japanese NES, right?
Of course not a 100%, but...really.

You might want to make sure you're right before trying to correct others. As others have mentioned, there is a 3DS enhanced port based on the PSP version available for 3DS in Japan.

And if you're referring to my post regarding Famicom, it's mentioned in the very first sentence:
"Originally released in late 1987 for the Nintendo Family Computer in Japan"
