Forbidden Land Eureka

Eureka, the Forbidden Land.

The Forbidden Land, Eureka (禁断の地エウレカ, Kindan no chi Eureka?) is an optional dungeon in the game Final Fantasy III which contains some of the best equipment in the game. A gateway to it can be found at the bottom floor of the Crystal Tower, but the Eureka Key is required. Doga and Unei unlock the Eureka Key, and give it to the Warriors of the Light, granting them access to Eureka, knowing they need better equipment to fight Xande.

The shops of Eureka.

In the final area of Eureka the player can find three shopkeepers selling some of the best spells, summons, and equipment in the game. It is also worth noting that this is the only place where Shuriken can be purchased, though at a ridiculously high price.

Trouble with the audio sample?

Eureka has its own exclusive background theme, originally translated "Forbidden Land" in the Original Sound Version, but was retconned as "Forbidden Land Eureka" (禁断の地エウレカ, Kindan no Chi Eureka?) in the Original Soundtrack. It is available as a battle background music for Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy as part of a downloadable content pack of three tracks from Final Fantasy III.
