Final Fantasy V Coming to European PSN

TwinBahamutTwinBahamut Staff HealerRPGamer Staff
edited April 2011 in Latest Updates
It is a bit more retro than the usual PSOne Classic, but the greatest Final Fantasy ever made will soon rise again in Europe. Chocobos, pirates, princesses, and unstoppable evil overlords await.

    OH NO YOU DIDN'T! *Rage*

    So wait... Are they selling FFV separate from VI? But Anthology was one package... Oh right! This is Square Enix were talking about.

    Say hi to the random lockups on the save screen for me EU!

    ...I'm really sorry but every time I try to play the FF5 PS1 disk on my PS3 fat it randomly locks up when I try to get to the screen to save and I'm afraid I'm not the only one.

    I do quite like some of the things they did with the job system in V.

    I consider the FFV job system the best use of it in the series. It's my third favorite, after FFVI and FVII.

    It was an issue on the PS2 as well. Shouldn't be a problem on PSN though.

    Wasn't that just screen corruption? I seem to recall you could cancel out of the save and it would work fine if you tried to save again.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Sometimes you could back out (sometimes it would hang). Either way, different method of game delivery on PSN.

    What's up with FFV and save problems? I also had the same problem on the PS2 and my GBA version's save corrupted.

    Also, loading screens? In my SNES games? No thank you.

    It's possible that FFV and VI will be separately in Japan PSN but here it will be released as Final Fantasy Anthology bundle.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    The PlayStation version of Final Fantasy V was released in North America and Europe as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology collection.
    Oh dear, that mistake just going to confuse people.

    Europe got a different version of Anthology which does still have FFV, but only has FFIV with it instead. So in response to Oyashiro, yes it definitely won't come with FFVI.

    Obviously it won't come with IV when FFIV:tCC out soon. I'm surprised they didn't wait until after that is out before announcing FFV.


    Note: Before Anthology Europe had already gotten the PS FFVI port, which came with the FFX demo. (I'm sure that will be separated from a VI port too. ;))

    I liked it for the job system and for bringing Gilgamesh to the Final Fantasy multiverse. Everyone likes Gilgamesh! It's not nearly one of my favorite RPGs or even one of my favorite FFs, but I'd get it on PSN if I could. I loves me some job changing.

    Actually, if I recall correctly, it's because the PSX version is just an emulator streaming the ROM data from the disc, so every time the original game loaded something from the cart the emulator has to read from the disc.

    Hey now, that's a bit unfair to call it a mistake. Final Fantasy V was released in both North America and Europe as part of a collection called Final Fantasy Anthology. I was quite deliberate in avoiding any reference to the other game in said package, because I was quite aware that the other game in the collection differed between regions.

    I don't really see how it would confuse people. though, since this is an article about FFV getting brought over to the PSN, not Final Fantasy Anthology...

    With more and more classic Square Enix games heading to European virtual consoles, I'm wondering if Square Enix is having a grudge against the world's largest gaming market, North Americans?

    If they want to make money, they should focus on North American gamers first, Europeans, Australians, and everyone else next.

    I hope that from now on, if video game producers want to release virtual console games, they must release it for everyone, not just Europeans.

    Or perhaps Square has noticed higher revenues for their retro RPGs in Europe than they've gotten in North America. Just because there's a larger potential market doesn't mean there's a larger actual market. Seeing as Squeenix likes money, like, a lot, I'm sure there are reasons for games that are released in Europe but not in North America, and those reasons don't include, "We don't like Americans."

    They probably realize that we're still suckers for boxed retail releases

    EDIT: Also, USA broadband infrastructure lags behind the rest of the world. Not sure about Canadia, but they've got their own issues like bandwidth caps I hear.

    Also, we're a small market in Canada. Our broadband infrastructure is decent in the population centres where most people live (Canada has a more urban population than the USA because we tend to huddle on the border for warmth), but there's only 30 million Canadians total, and a significantly smaller number of RPG purchasers here.

    I love all this stuff being re-released. I never have to touch my PS1 discs again, and I can play them all on the PSP! Woo!

    Maybe they're making up for lost time. I don't think a lot of the RPGs getting re-released in Europe showed in the first place.

    Yep, that was another possibility that occurred to me. The initiative could certainly be primarily on Square Enix Europe's part, while Squeenix NA is more concerned with other releases.

    Eh, even if I lived in Europe, the GBA FFV does me just fine. Everything I've read says the translation is better, and it has some extra Jobs that are pretty nice.
    It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.
