Good news for all Final Fantasy fans. The lead designer of “Final Fantasy IV” and long-time developer working at Square Enix, Takashi Tokita, confirmed that Final Fantasy VI remake will be released on both Android and iOS by the end of this year.
The game was originally released for SNES back in 1994 and in the beginning it was known as Final Fantasy III in North America, as players didn’t get to play the original FF III that was not released outside of Japan at the time. Final Fantasy VI was later ported to Sony Playstation in 1999 and by this date, both versions count nearly 35 million copies sold worldwide.
As Tokita mentioned, the game will undergo a few changes to make it more appealing for mobile gamers.
“The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VIwill be the same. For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don’t have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is.”
We can also expect overhauled and sharpened graphics, similar to what we saw in the fifth game of the series that was released on Android about a month ago. Tokita also added that if this “Legacy” project works out well, we are most likely going to see the port/remake version of Final Fantasy VII as well in future.
