It will be interesting to see the reception to the pixel remaster of Final Fantasy VI. It’s easily one of the most popular Final Fantasy titles of all time and follows a young woman named Terra a thousand years after a great war where magic vanished.

In addition to the updated 2D pixel graphics and rearranged soundtrack, the Final Fantasy VI pixel remasters will also include “improved gameplay” like a modernized user interface, auto-battle options, and more. Additionally, there will be supplemental extras included in the video game like a bestiary, music player, and illustration gallery.
As noted above, the Final Fantasy VI pixel remaster is set to release for PC via Steam and on mobile devices on February 23rd. This is just the latest in a string of Final Fantasy pixel remaster titles featuring new graphics and audio among other improvements. That said, Final Fantasy VI is the last title announced to release in the pixel remaster series thus far. While it would be unlikely for further mainline titles to receive the same treatment, there does exist the odd spinoff title here and there that could possibly be announced in the future.
