The first six titles in Square Enix’s JRPG series will be back in a revamped version. Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will propose a return to the origins, with sprites closer to the originals. They have not opted for a style like that of the Dragon Quest III remake, similar to that of Octopath Traveler, but for a version something more faithful the classics. However, it is not currently planned for all platforms. That may change in the future.
According to the frequently asked questions section published on the video game’s official website (in Japanese, yes), these classics may end up reaching more systems than PC and iOS and Android mobile devices. They do not assure anything, but they do anticipate that if the demand is high enough they will consider moving the video games to other platforms.
Other confirmed news
Additional details have also come to light. Square Enix has done some fine-tuning work to balance the various titles, while Kazuko Shibuya, the veteran of the company who has worked on the saga since the first Final Fantasy, has been in charge of designing all the new character sprites. On the other hand, Nobuo Uematsu has arranged the soundtrack. It is also revealed that they have also reproduced the sound effects again. There is a monster registry that allows you to mark them on the map, as well as art galleries and keyboard and controller support.
Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will be sold as a bundle, but the games will begin releasing separately. New versions of Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI have been designed. And when will they arrive? As of this same July 28. It should be noted that the old versions will disappear from Steam, although those who have bought them will have the option to download them again whenever they want.
