Square Enix announced that February 23 will be the date in which the Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster will be released. This return of the classic JRPG will be out on Steam and mobile platforms on this date.

Final Fantasy VI was first released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1994. This release features updated 2D pixel graphics, a rearranged soundtrack, a modernized UI, options for an auto-battle system, and extras like the bestiary, illustration gallery, and music player.

Players will embark on a timeless story following The War of the Magi, which left little but ashes and misery in its wake and magic itself vanished from the world. A thousand years later, humanity has rebuilt the world relying on machines and technology – until they find a young girl named Terra with mysterious powers. The evil Empire has kept her enslaved in an effort to harness these powers as a weapon, leading to a fateful meeting between Terra and a young man named Locke. Their harrowing escape from the Empire's clutches sets in motion a series of events that touches countless lives and leads to one inevitable conclusion.

Regarded as one of the most beloved games in the FINAL FANTASY series, FINAL FANTASY VI features a robust roster of playable characters, each with their own stories, goals and destinies. Players will be able to customize their party members’ abilities, magic spells and summons with the acclaimed magicite system. In addition, players can look forward to many improvements and updates for FINAL FANTASY VI, including:
  • Universally updated 2D pixel graphics, including the iconic FINAL FANTASY pixel character designs created by Kazuko Shibuya, the original artist and current collaborator.
  • A beautifully rearranged soundtrack in a faithful FINAL FANTASY style, overseen by the original composer Nobuo Uematsu.
  • Improved gameplay, including modernized UI, auto-battle options and more!
  • Supplemental extras like the bestiary, illustration gallery and music player.
