Square Enix has officially commented on the rumored release date adjustment for the North-American version of Final Fantasy III.
The title has indeed been adjusted from Nov 1st to Nov 14th. The ajustment is done because Final Fantasy V is slated to ship for the GBA on Nov 6th, and Square Enix didn’t want the two games competing for shelve space.

On the website a new little feature has arrived! A login script for the forums. If you have an account at our forums you can use this form to login. When logged in you can see how many posts you made on the forums.

Due to this new feature roms are no longer available for guests to download. Now you need to be registered member at our forums and have at least 50 posts (with no spam) to download the roms. I've changed this due to the lots of bandwidth the roms are using. And I don't want to exceed my bandwidth every time.
