List of Final Fantasy media

This is a list of media related to the nihongo|"Final Fantasy"|ファイナルファンタジー|Fainaru Fantajī video game series. "Final Fantasy" is a series of console role playing games developed and published by Square Enix (formerly Square). Its first game premiered in Japan in 1987, and "Final Fantasy" games have subsequently been localized for markets in North America, Europe and Australia, on nearly every video game console since the Nintendo Entertainment System, including MSX2, Super Nintendo, PlayStation, WonderSwan (Color), PlayStation 2, IBM PC, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, and several models of mobile phone. Future games have been announced for Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3 game systems. "Final Fantasy" is Square Enix's most successful franchise, having sold over 80 million units worldwide to date,cite press release | url=http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=31672 | title=Press release: Relive the birth of a phenomenon with Final Fantasy & Final Fantasy II | publisher=Square Enix | accessdate=2008-01-01 | date=2007-12-19] including tactical role-playing games, portable games, MMORPGs, and games for mobile phones, in addition to console role-playing games. Its popularity has placed it as the fourth-best-selling video game franchise, among other honors.Citation |date= July 2007|title= Final Frontiers|periodical= Edge|publisher= Future Publishing|issue= 177|pages= 72-79|accessdate= 2007-10-07]

As of 2008, twelve games have been released as part of the main (numbered) series, as well as many spin-offs and related titles. Each game in the main series takes place in a different fictional universe, though beginning with "Final Fantasy X-2", video games set in main series games' worlds have been released. In addition to video games, "Final Fantasy" has spawned several anime, movies, novels and manga, as well as a few radio dramas. Many games, particularly the main series, have several companion soundtracks with music from the games. Since the announcement of "Compilation of Final Fantasy VII", Square Enix has focused on "polymorphic content", expanding each game world with material on many video game platforms, as well as other forms of media.cite web | author=Kohler, Chris | date=2004-09-24 | url=http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/action/dirgeofcerberusfinalfantasyvii/news.html?sid=6108651 | title=More Compilation of Final Fantasy VII details | work= [http://www.gamespot.com/ GameSpot] | accessdate=2006-08-10]

Video games

Originally, "Final Fantasy II" and "III" for the Famicom and "V" for the Super Famicom were not released in America. For number continuity, Square of America changed the numerals of the US releases: "Final Fantasy IV" became "II" and "VI" became "III". Starting with "Final Fantasy VII" the pretense was dropped, and all subsequent games used their original numbering, leading to an apparent "jump" over 3 games. This has been a source of much confusion, with many American fans continuing to refer to "IV" and "VI" by their American numbers. To solve this, many fans used to use the disambiguating suffixes "us" and "j" for American numbering and Japanese numbering respectively, e.g. "FF3us" and "FF6j" refer to the same game. This practice has practically ceased since the later ports began to include translations of the Japanese games with their original numbering.

title = Final Fantasy Legend "series
platform = Nintendo Game Boy
notes = They are not titles within the "Final Fantasy" series, but rather the first three games of the "SaGa" series; they were marketed in North America as "The Final Fantasy Legend" (1990), "Final Fantasy Legend II" (1991), and "Final Fantasy Legend III"' (1993), respectively. All three games were reissued by Sunsoft (again under the "Final Fantasy Legend" name) in 1998. None of the three games bore any "Final Fantasy" branding in their original Japanese versions. They were never released in Europe or Australia in any form (although imported North American copies of the reissues were sold in major UK stores such as GAME and Electronics Boutique, a common practice for Game Boy titles in the late 1990s, and one not discouraged by Sunsoft at the time). main|SaGa

Music and soundtracks

Most of the music of "Final Fantasy" was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Traditionally, each game has an original soundtrack, as well as a piano arrangement version. Recently, concert tours of "Final Fantasy" music have been organized, such as Dear Friends -Music from Final Fantasy-. Uematsu left Square Enix in 2004 and musical duties have been given to various composers such as Hitoshi Sakimoto, although Uematsu still does contract work through his company Smile Please.
