Final Fantasy III: Old vs. New

I've been playing Final Fantasy III on iPad. I didn't realize that the original had ever been released in English, although apparently it must've since this playthrough shows it. Adorable 8-bit goodness:

Nintendo DS Remake of FFIII has given the characters personality, dialog, a dash of humor with letters being sent to you from NPCs via Mognet, some backstory and relationships, and FFIX style graphics. It's the same music if you listen closely, rearranged by Uematsu for a richer sound system:

The iPad graphics are brighter, clearer, and larger, but otherwise the same. But the music sounds so, so much better on iPad:

I woke up with this running through my head and didn't even mind the earworm. I lurve me some Uematsu.
