A fanmade English patch for the Nintendo 3DS version of Final Fantasy has been shared online.
The patch, which can be downloaded from GameBanana, uses files left in the Japanese version of the game. You can check out the English version of the game in action in the video below.
The first entry in the celebrated series by Square Enix was released on Nintendo 3DS in Japan only back in December 2014. It originally launched as a first print bonus for Final Fantasy Explorers before getting released separately in January 2015. Alongside 3D support, this version of the game includes all the additional content found in the PSP and GBA releases.
The original Final Fantasy has been recently remastered as part of the Pixel Remaster series. You can learn more about it by checking out my review.
The first three Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters are a somewhat solid remastering effort that could have been so much better with a few tweaks. While the amazing rearranged soundtracks sound great and the balancing tweaks make the three games still feel great to play, the divisive overhauled visuals reminiscent of the 16-bit entries, technical issues like the lack of a V-Sync toggle and display settings not saving and lack of additional content found in prior remakes make these remasters a truly worthy purchase only for those who live and breathe Final Fantasy.
