A little 2D, some 3D on top, and a layer of makeup on top. For fans who miss the look of the original games, the company announced the pixelated remakes of the first six Final Fantasy.
These pixelated remakes will be released throughout the year, and the first three Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters are already on Google Play, App Store, Amazon App Store and Steam. Nostalgia will be a bit expensive, since the price ranges from 12.99 euros for Final Fantasy I and II to 19.99 euros for Final Fantasy III.
Curiously, these versions do not appear in the stores mentioned with the name “Pixel Remaster”, but Square Enix has decided to keep the original name and rename previous 3D editions with the nickname (3D Remake).
