I’ve written about a bunch of Final Fantasy’s pixel remasters over the past year, and each time there are people in the comments saying that Final Fantasy VI is the best, they can’t wait for Final Fantasy VI, why isn’t Final Fantasy VI being remastered yet…
Well, here it comes. Final Fantasy VI is getting the pixel remaster treatment on February 23rd.
All of the classic 2D Final Fantasy games were previously available on Steam, but only as ports of the mobile versions which did horrible things to the original game’s pixel art. They were pulled from Steam last year, and remasters which perfectly maintain the original pixel art have been rolling out ever since. Originally released on the SNES in 1994, Final Fantasy VI is about a young girl with mysterious powers named Terra, a young man named Locke, and their escape from an evil Empire.
Alongside the pixel art polish, the remaster has a rearranged soundtrack overseen by original composer Nobuo Uematsu, a modern UI, and auto-battle options. Final Fantasy VI’s release will mean all the original games are now available on Steam, including as part of a bundle.
