The lights are on
Update: Signs are pointing to a U.S. version of the previously revealed Final Fantasy PSN re-release. The ESRB has listed a rating for the game on its website. The game, which is listed for the PS3 and PSP has been given a T rating. Now all we need is for Square Enix to just come out and say it's coming. We're all ears, guys.
Square Enix has confirmed via Twitter that the 16-bit classic Final Fantasy III will be coming to PSN...in Japan. However, odds are good that PS3 owners on our side of the Pacific will get a crack at it eventually.
By the way, in case you're still confused by the numbering, this game was the one that was originally released on SNES in North America as Final Fantasy III. It has Terra, Locke, Kefka... all that good stuff.
I know Square Enix gets accused of going back to the re-release well too many times. While that's certainly a valid complaint, Final Fantasy VI is among the best games in the series (or the best, if you ask me), so I'm happy for any excuse to play through it again.(Source: Joystiq, IGN)

This and Twisted Metal..PS3 here I come.
Holy $*&%! I didn't know Final Fantasy III is on Virtual Console! I gotta get right now!
ok... so everything on my snes is now available and its *** picky about its power cord... I might just retire it... course need 60 $ to buy everything on it again.
FF fans will look forward to this.
I do like the characters though.
I'm pretty sure Final Fantasy VI isn't on Virtual Console. IV is but VI isn't.
Finally I get to play this game!
Awesome. My favorite 16-bit FF game.
Or could just play the GBA game on my DS lite. Thank goodness I haven't traded it in for the 3DS.
I've been wanting to play FFVI for a while but could never find a copy. I love PSN more and more every day.
Nice, this is a great announcement since my SNES died years ago.
In my book FF6 is SLIGHTLY better than FF7. But personally FF4 and 9 are great as well. We all have different tastes I guess.
I never did play this one, I finally get a chance!!
I'm not surprised this is PSN only, but I wish it wasn't.
All I've got at this point is the GBA re-release, and that isn't going to work in anything over a DS Lite. :(
I need this!!!!!!!
