For a franchise wearing the name Final Fantasy, there sure are a lot of entries in the series. Most of those titles are available from the PlayStation Network – but there’s been one major omission for some time now. That’s set to be rectified next week, when Final Fantasy III travels onto the North American digital storefront.

The PSP re-release will include optimised widescreen visuals, an image gallery, the option to switch between original and re-mastered audio, and an auto-battle system that supposedly “doubles the speed of combat”.

There’s no word on a price, or whether it will work on the Vita just yet – but we have to imagine SCEA has some semblance of sense.
