Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is launching on February 23 for the PC and Mobile Devices (iOS and Android) and Square Enix has left fans with a final teaser of the game, showing the iconic opera scene updated with the HD-2D treatment from titles like Octopath Traveler and the upcoming Triangle Strategy.
The opera scene will also do away with the MIDI audio from the original and replace it with an actual vocal track translated in 7 languages (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean.)
Here’s an overview of the upcoming release:
The original FINAL FANTASY VI comes to life with completely new graphics and audio as a 2D pixel remaster!
A remodeled 2D take on the sixth game in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series! Enjoy the timeless story told through charming retro graphics. All the magic of the original, with improved ease of play.
The War of the Magi caused magic to disappear from the world. A thousand years later, humanity relies on machines – until they find a young woman with mysterious powers. The magicite system allows players to customize which abilities, magic spells, and summons the party members learn. All the playable characters have their own stories, goals, and destinies. Journey through their interwoven fates in this sweeping melodrama.
Revisit the critically acclaimed FFVI – this remastered version also includes the beloved and iconic opera scene in reimagined majesty, including new vocals and animation.
Arguably one of the best Final Fantasy games in the franchise, there is a disappointment in some console players (including myself) since the release is only for PC and Mobile, but we’re hoping Square Enix decides to release the full Pixel Remaster set across other platforms soon.
