Perhaps one of the games many Final Fantasy fans who own a PlayStation 3 have been waiting for. Square Enix announced it is already working on a PS3 & PSP version of Final Fantasy V with “all-new CG cinematic sequences” exclusive to the PSN edition.” Though many young fans may not be familiar with the earlier games of Final Fantasy, this is a great opportunity to show them why people loved these games. It’s also an excellent chance for veteran fans of the franchise who did not get to play the Super Famicon version of the game in its earlier days. Originally released in Japan in December 1992, FFV was not released in the United States until years later in other platforms.

Update: The game will be released in Japan on Wednesday [http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/04/04/ffv_game_archives/].
