After 10 years of development, Final Fantasy XV is finally upon us, and it's quite good. In celebration of this game's release, we're taking a look back at one of Final Fantasy's highest points. Some of you who grew up with the Super Nintendo know it as Final Fantasy III, the youngsters who didn't play it until it was re-released likely call it Final Fantasy VI. Confusing naming conventions aside, this is one of the best role-playing games ever made, and is often cited as one of top Super Nintendo releases.

In this week's Replay, we take a lengthy look at the game's action-packed intro, show off the memorable opera scene, and give you a small taste of open-world exploration. We also dive into another lesser-known Super Nintendo RPG, and discuss other titles that released around the same time. It was a great era for gaming, and you'll soon see that Final Fantasy III hasn't lost much of its charm in the decades that followed.

Thanks again for watching our silly little show. We'll see you again in seven days.
