The final of the classic top-down Final Fantasy games released prior to the transition to fully-3D visuals in Final Fantasy VII, Square Enix has today rolled out their new pixel remaster version of Final Fantasy VI onto the PC via Steam, and mobile platforms. In this release, players can embark on the classic journey with improved visuals and audio.
For the first time, FINAL FANTASY VI pixel remaster will also introduce the beloved opera scene in reimagined majesty, including new vocals and animation. Fans can now enjoy the iconic scene with vocals in Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Korean. The voice track language of this scene will be determined by the language selected on the game’s configuration page. While other text languages are available, those who select those languages will default to either English or Japanese.
Other improvements made to Final Fantasy VI include:
- Universally updated 2D pixel graphics, including the iconic FINAL FANTASY pixel character designs created by Kazuko Shibuya, the original artist and current collaborator.
- A beautifully rearranged soundtrack in a faithful FINAL FANTASY style, overseen by the original composer Nobuo Uematsu.
