There are two types of people: those who prefer the style of the later Final Fantasy like the FF VII Remake and those who prefer the classic style of the former. The latter received good news during the Square Enix E3 2021 conference: they will have a remake for mobile.
But not just any remake, but a pixelated remake, keeping the original style and unlike most of the mobile versions of Final Fantasy games that Square Enix has brought, often based on the 3D remake for consoles.
The Final Fantasy from 1 to 6 with all its pixels
Square Enix has announced the launch – or perhaps relaunch – of Final Fantasy from 1 to 6 for mobile phones in what it calls a “pixel-perfect makeover.” I mean, with a facelift, but based on the pixelated style from the original games.
This remake arrive under the name Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster and will therefore include Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI. All these games have already been released in a mobile version, without much consistency: some like Final Fantasy keep the original design, but others like Final Fantasy III are a port of the 3D remaster for consoles.
It looks like this Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will bring some consistency to the presence of Final Fantasy on mobile (and PC, it will also be released on Steam), although at the moment we don’t have much more information other than what is included in the video above.
Namely, there is no estimated date beyond “coming soon”. If you want to enjoy the classic Final Fantasy again and following its original essence, this remake is worth tracking down.
