Final Fantasy 6’s pixel remaster launches in February 2022
Square Enix said it’ll take the “required time to apply final polish” while finishing the game’s development, so stay tuned. If you pre-order the game separately or have previously purchased the bundle, you’ll also receive a special soundtrack containing remixes of Locke’s Theme and The Decisive Battle, as well as two exclusive wallpapers.
The pixel remasters of Final Fantasy 4 and 5 were released on September 8 and November 10, respectively, so you’re facing a longer wait this time, but, hey, Final Fantasy 6’s pixel remaster should be out around the same time as the Steam Deck, so that’s something.
We recently got a wee glimpse of what the dev team is working on in an issue of Famitsu. The opera scene, in particular, has a 2.5D pixel vibe that’s reminiscent of Octopath Traveller, though I’m keen to see how the rest of the game will look in comparison.
Final Fantasy’s pixel remasters have gone down well so far, with most of them netting ‘very’ or ‘overwhelmingly’ positive reviews on Steam. That said, a common complaint is that the text is just a wee bit too small. If Final Fantasy 6 launches with tiny text, though, I’m sure a mod to fix it will be along not long after, which has been the case with the other games.
Square Enix initially revealed that it was remastering Final Fantasy’s first six games in pixel style last year. While we got the first three games in one go, the following three have been staggered.
