While most in North America were sleeping last night, Square Enix President Yoichi Wada took the stage at Nintendo's DS Conference in Japan and officially confirmed something that was recently hinted at in Shonen Jump: that Square Enix will be bringing both Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI to the Game Boy Advance. Both of these ports will come with content not found in the SNES and PlayStation versions, and will be released next year following the release of the GBA port of Final Fantasy IV this Holiday Season.
Wada also discussed the status of the Nintendo DS version of Final Fantasy III, which has seen little in the way of new information since its original announcement. Wada confirmed that the game is in development under the lead direction of Hiromichi Tanaka, the director of Final Fantasy XI. He also stated that the game will be remade using polygons for both the characters and the field similar to Seiken Densetsu.
Final Fantasy IV Advance will be released in North America on December 12. All of the other games currently have their prospective release dates set at some time in 2006.
