To make room for the new Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series, Square Enix has released the old remasters of Final fantasy v and Final Fantasy VI on Steam.
The two old remasters for FF5 and FF6 have not been particularly well received, with most criticism focusing on pixel art. The negative response even prompted the modding community to try to “fix” these ports themselves. It looks like Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster could be Square Enix’s response to these criticisms.
Square Enix teased Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster at E3 earlier this year. These will be the final 2D remasters of the first six games in the series. Square Enix said it aimed to “perfectly capture the spirit of these original games”, in a official press release.
Currently, the Steam pages for both games show an expected release date of 2021. Both games are also already available for pre-order through the Final Fantasy I-VI Package.
However, Square Enix will not be removing 3D remakes for Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV of the Steam storefront. People planning to play these versions will still have the option to play these versions.
The year promises to be busy for the Final fantasy franchise. the Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade Recently released DLC. Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster be there soon. Final Fantasy XIV Online is releasing a new expansion in November. All of this, and fans are already waiting for the next entry in the legendary franchise, Final Fantasy XVI.
