Genre(s) RPG

The Final Fantasy series is developed, and was originally published by, Squaresoft. After the merger with Enix, the video games were published by Square Enix (Final Fantasy IX was the first in the main series).

For the most part, Final Fantasy video games are traditional console RPGs, with the exceptions of Final Fantasy XI and XIV (MMORPGs) and the Tactics series of strategic RPGs. Most of the video games in the main series have been re-released in a series of collections for the PS1.

Video games with a Roman numeral are considered to be part of the main Final Fantasy series, though the video games have very little to do with one another (with the exception of the Final Fantasy X, VII and IV direct sequels). There are also several spin-off series, including Tactics and Crystal Chronicles.

Originally, Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III were not released in the US, so Final Fantasy IV was renamed Final Fantasy 2 and Final Fantasy VI was renamed Final Fantasy 3 when they were localized. Now that all of the Final Fantasy video games have been released in the US, they are referred to by the original numbers in all regions. Additionally, all four Game Boy video games are part of a completely different series but were rebranded as Final Fantasy games when they were localized from Japan.

Main titles[edit]

The Final Fantasy games are released in Japan first. Their original Japanese title is in English, with a Japanese translitteration (not a translation) underneath, so that Japanese-speaking players can easily read it, too.
