Nintendo has unveiled plans to re-release Final Fantasy VI Advanced on the Wii U Virtual Console, according to a product listing that surfaced earlier this morning on their official website.

The game, originally released as Final Fantasy III in North America, has seen a number of ports to other platforms, from the PlayStation One, to mobile devices and even earlier this week when it was released on Steam. The version being released on Virtual Console is a modified version of the Gameboy Advanced port, which includes the updated visuals found in the mobile and Steam versions of the game.

The game is set to release December 22nd on the eShop in Japan for 702 yen, the equivalent of $5 here in North America. It’s unknown whether this version will be released in either Europe or North America, but considering how Square Enix has acted in the past regarding their re-releases, it seems likely that the game will arrive on our shores sooner rather than later.

Stay tuned for more news on Final Fantasy 6 for Wii U Virtual Console as it becomes available.
