Save Editor for Final Fantasy III
One of the largest video game franchises in gaming history has made its mobile debut on Android with Square Enix’s re-release of the classic Final Fantasy III. For those who are unaware, the game was originally released in 1990 for Japanese consoles only. The game wouldn’t make it’s US debut until it was released for the Nintendo DS in 2006. Now, Square Enix has chosen it to be their first Final Fantasy release on Android. Of course, with video game releases come ways to cheat. In the past, we’ve brought you a way around bad drawing partners in Draw Something and a cheat engine that works on most games.
Now, Final Fantasy III gets its own save editor, where users can alter pretty much anything. Posted on the forums by XDA Senior Member adrianyujs, the save game hack can alter just about anything in the game. Included in the cheat thread is a comprehensive list of all item, job, magic, and equipment codes to help you customize your characters how you want to.
The process is relatively simple. Download the software, grab the save.bin from your device, edit it, and place it back with the proper permissions. Given that setting the proper permissions is part of the process, that means that users need to be rooted and will need their favorite root explorer app to set the permissions. In essence, it’s a Game Genie, but for one game and on Android. What better way to relive the SNES days?
