Final Fantasy III: Original Sound Version is the complete soundtrack of the original NES version of Final Fantasy III. It was actually not the first compilation album of the game, having been released a year after the arranged album Final Fantasy III: Eternal Legend of the Wind had been released.

The NES version of Final Fantasy III never made it to Western shores, and therefore it was not until the DS Version of the game that the soundtrack was widely distributed in America and the rest of the world.
