First Fantasy March?

FFs I & II get PAL release date

Final Fantasy Origins, the package comprising the first two games in the long-running RPG series, is to be made available in Europe from March 14th, according to Sony's official press outlet.'s release date listings were recently updated with the information, although Sony UK's current release schedule makes no mention of it, and US reports suggest the games will be out in April over there.

Pricing is expected to fall into line with previous FF re-release packages. In other words, expect to pay a tenner for this dose of retro gaming fun.

However, one would argue that the first two games in the series are a bit too much time travel for the average gamer. Although Final Fantasy V and VI are both tremendous, and remain very playable, the same is rarely said about the first two.
