Ouya has been making waves recently, having reached 5.8 million in donations from their kickstarter program. And this past week, Square Enix, Red 5 Studios and Onlive all dropped amazing news for Ouya fans everywhere.
To start, Square Enix announced today that gamers will finally be getting Final Fantasy III. Originally re-released as a 3D remake on the Nintendo DS back in 2006, gamers will get their chance at this lost treasure in true high definition on Ouya.
And if you are not sure whether to drop coin on this missing link, there will be a demo available at launch.
If this wasn’t enough to get you excited, Mark Kern, the ex-World of Warcraft lead and current CEO of Red 5 Studios, had this to say to about FireFall possibly joining Ouya’s game lineup after an interview with Eurogamer.net;
For the price of the Kickstarter why not try it? Yeah, they may fail. Some people are saying ‘oh, it’s vaporware.’ But I want to get behind people that want to challenge the status quo, who want to try something different.
Finally to round all this out, Onlive has joined forces with Ouya to bring the entire library of Onlive games to the Ouya console.
Gamers will find a slew of games to play and up to 30 minutes of trials for the ones you are not sure about buying, yet.
Ouya is making great connections with gamers and developers alike, but it remains to be seen whether it will it be enough for this new console to carve out a place for itself.
