Like the headline says, Square Enix finally updated Final Fantasy 3 with Cloud Saves, as well as support for many physical controllers. After booting up the updated game on my Nexus 5, I was greeted with the new and very blue cloud save icon on the top right of my screen.
|In case that you missed it, the cloud save icon is on the top right of the screen.|
I started a new game and played just enough to defeat the first boss of the game, and once in the overworld, I saved my file and tested the cloud save system. Afterwards, I quit my game, and logged onto my Nexus 7.

Once the game booted up on my Nexus 7, I once again pressed the Cloud Save icon and was able to continue from my save file. The interesting thing about this system is that it does not use Google Play games. It will instead upload to your Google drive account. I'm not particularly sure of why Square Enix would choose to take this route, but beggars can't be choosers, can they? Perhaps they will integrate support for Google Play games at a later date.
The other part of the update adds support for physical controllers. Currently, I have only tested it with my Gametel bluetooth controller, and the game worked fine with it. I was able to walk/run, enter and exit menus, and select items without issues.
As of today, the game is on sale for 50% off on the Google Play store and I can now highly recommend picking this game up. Not only have I tried it on many android devices with no issues to report, it's a great game in its own right. Cloud Saves and controller support now mean that you can play on the big screen if your device is equipped with HDMI out or supports video out via Chromecast/Miracast/WiDi. My recommendation is that you stick with a wired connection to the TV due to lag and timing issues with wireless displays when it comes to gaming.
The only things missing now are true Google Play games support and Immersive mode to hide the physical buttons. There are ways to force Immersive mode, but they are either incomplete workarounds or need root.
