Final Fantasy 1-6 are experiencing a second spring as Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster. The reissues of the JRPG classics were announced during Square Enix’s E3 show.
This is not the first time Square Enix has tried to revive the earliest branches of the Final Fantasy franchise in a new version. The first six parts originally came on the market between 1987 and 1994 and at that time could only be played on Nintendo consoles. Since then, there has been a remake of Final Fantasy 3, among other things, which replaced the pixel look of the original with 3D graphics and also made it available for PC gamers on Steam after Nintendo 3DS. Some titles have also been optimized for mobile devices and, for example, parts 1-4 can now all be played on the iPhone.
Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will bring the popular RPG series to Steam and Mobile. Each game is supposed to be published separately, so it won’t be a complete collection. As the name of the project suggests, Square Enix remains true to the charm of the pixels this time around and only wants to make minor cosmetic adjustments. By the way, parts 1 and 2 will be playable on Steam for the first time as part of this revision, while part three will then also be available for purchase in its original pixel look.
How the remaster will look in detail and what specific changes it will bring with it is not yet entirely clear. It is the same with information about a release date.
