The Ouya project on Kickstarter isn't without its skeptics, but don't count Square Enix among them. In an update posted today, Ouya's developers announced a partnership with game developer Square Enix that will see Final Fantasy III among the growing number of launch titles, assuming the Android console ever comes to fruition in the first place.

Assuming all goes to plan, Final Fantasy III on Ouya will represent the first time gamers outside of Japan can play the title on their swank HDTVs through a console.

"But that’s not the end of it: We’re promising to deliver Final Fantasy III like you’ve never seen it before – Hironobu Sakaguchi’s third installment in the role playing game franchise will be updated to exploit Ouya’s high-definition resolution in glorious graphic detail," Ouya explains. "For those of you who are new to Final Fantasy, we’ll offer a free demo so you can give it a go!"

Ouya's Kickstarter campaign still has eight days remaining, but it has long since surpassed its initial goal of receiving $950,000 in pledges. At the time of this writing, Ouya has collected over $5.87 million in pledges from nearly 46,000 backers.

I am truly interested in this Ouya console. Promising an open-source, hackable experience, Ouya is not the first of the idea however it certainly seems like it can actually follow through and deliver and for $99 only!
