While not quite the same attention paid to more recent remakes of Final Fantasy, Square Enix gives the first six games in the RPG series a “pixel remaster” treatment. During the company’s presentation at E3, it announced that these pixel-perfect editions would land on mobile and Steam platforms. Other details, however, were scarce.
This should help set expectations: it’s not another FFVII Remake. Games like Final Fantasy VI could benefit from an updated edition – its Steam iteration (and its “updated” graphics) was not fully well received.
Faithful reproductions might be well received, especially when smartphones can easily run games originally created decades earlier – and present them to new generations who might not have played them. (And don’t tell nobody, but I never finished Final Fantasy II. This might be my chance.)
