Final Fantasy VI remake coming to Android with sharper graphics, less grinding

Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy fans have a reason to get excited. Developer Square Enix will be remaking another game for our favorite mobile platform. This time, the remake will be of Final Fantasy VI. The game won’t be a straight port, with some modifications done to it just like the other games that have been released on mobile.

First of all, the battle systems have been modified to make leveling up easier. Previously, the game required grinding to level up, but the developers removed that so the core game will be more enjoyable and so the focus will be on the gameplay itself. Second, the 2D graphics have been sharpened for a better look on today’s high resolution displays.

The game shall be out this winter for both Android and iOS, for owners of both types of devices. And when asked about a remake of Final Fantasy VII, in case you were wondering when the next one would be out before this one is even released, Square Enix director and producer Takashi Tokita says that they would want to make a remake for mobile someday, but first comes Final Fantasy: The After Years.

    Not for nothing, but it’s coming…soooo close….a FF7 remake on android…it’s soooo close =)

      That would be the greatest injustice to the game! It needs to be rereleased on PC, but it would be AMAZING if they just opened the game up for the modding community to have a massive crack at it. Each time the PC community has tried to work on the game Square comes out of left field to shut the project down. Rat bastards won’t remake the game and won’t let anyone else remake it either!

    i hope it’s not $19.99. i love most of square’s games, but sometimes the price is just too steep.

    • uknowme

      Yes that’s understandable. The flip side its if we want quality games in android we have to pay quality prices.

      • Tookule4skool

        You mean repay? over and over and over again… I’m not sure how many times i’ve purchased their games on multiple platforms, the greed is kinda ridiculous. They just need to have a Square account, once you’ve purchased a game from them they just let you download it on what ever platform, I wouldn’t even mind paying a discounted price but full price for a game i’ve purchased at least 2 – 3 times… come on…

          You mean remake? over and over and over again…We’re not sure how many times we’ve made games for different platforms but their greed is kinda ridiculous, to expect us to put all those man hours in for free.

    So they say winter, that means we should see it by summer of 2014. I’m still waiting for Deus Ex, which was supposed to be released in September.

  • Alonso R.

    Wow! I’ve been waiting for this game all along. I loved it when it was released on snes as FF3.
    The story is simply amazing and the ending is so far the best ending I’ve seen to date.

    Will definitely buy. I’m really excited with the updates it will bring.

    Thanks SquareEnix. I hope to have it soon.

    FF6 needs more love. It needs the love FF4 received! FF6 is totally an AWESOME game! for those who haven’t played it, support square and show them your love for the game by getting this remake! I dislike the idea for a mobile remake, but its a start…

    • Elskidor

      FFVI is the masterpiece of the series! I would have nergasms for a week straight if we got a ps4 remake.

  • zozo

    Mmmm. Well its a start. This is a game that should be remade. Like how they did FF4 complete collection, but make it better.

  • OUTraged
