Final Fantasy VI coming to iOS/Android this winter photo
Final Fantasy VI coming to iOS/Android this winter
by Steven Hansen

Final Fantasy VI, arguably the series' zenith, hasn't been milked and re-released to the same extent as other titles in the franchise. Even the harder to obtain Final Fantasy V has come to iOS. Well, no more, says Square Enix, because an updated version of Final Fantasy VI is coming to iOS and Android this winter, Square director and producer Takashi Tokita told Kotaku today.

"It is basically like a remake of the original VI," Tokita said, "But there have been some enhancements. The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will 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."

The visuals will also see a smoothing out like the somewhat uncanny-looking Final Fantasy V iOS. Speaking of doing things with legacy titles, when asked if the Legacy series could include games from VII on, Tokita responded, "We are aware that we have tons of VII fans. We have VII fans in our own company. If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII."

Still want that Final Fantasy VII remake? Interested in Final Fantasy VI on mobile?

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD has over 60 remastered tracks

Curious why Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy X-2 HD are taking so long? Square is doing quite a polish job on them, that's why. In addition to doing things like adding a whole new 30-minute scene. This latest video, whic...

If you're a long-time shmup fan, you may remember a largely forgotten Genesis classic called Steel Empire that dropped in 1992. Well it appears as if said classic was fondly recalled by someone, as it's heading to the 3DS in ...

Here's what the Wii U Wind Waker HD bundle looks like photo
Here's what the Wii U Wind Waker HD bundle looks like
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

This past week Destructoid was the first to bring you news on an upcoming Wii U bundle that would be bundled with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. Today Nintendo released a new trailer for the upcoming game showing off Hero Mode, but then quickly pulled the video down. Why? Because the special edition Wii U bundle was featured in the video before it's been officially announced by Nintendo. Oops!

The video was caught by NeoGAF user D-e-f, and has since been reuploaded for all to see. It will probably be pulled again, so here's a screencap showing off the Wii U featuring special Zelda-themed artwork like the Triforce.

No further details were revealed in the trailer, such as price or release date. We expect this bundle to be out this Octoer with the release of the game, and that the bundle will go for $349.99.

Wind Waker HD is a 2.6GB download of fuzzy feelings

I don't think I ever get tired of looking at Wind Waker. Winder Waker HD is dropping soon (October), so you better set aside a good chunk of time to delete all those games off of your Wii U to make some room. The game, now ov...

DuckTales flies in August, boxed PS3 version incoming
by Tony Ponce

You know what I never had a chance to do at E3 this year? Visit Scrooge McDuck's money bin. Not my fault that iam8bit planted the installation friggin' miles away from the show floor! Those jerks!

Anyway, Capcom has finally announced launch dates for DuckTales Remastered. Wii U, PS3, and PC players can solve a mystery on August 13, but Xbox 360 players will have to wait until September 11 to rewrite history. But wait! There is an additional surprise in the form of a limited-edition boxed release, exclusive to the PS3, arriving August 20. Okay, it's just a download code rather than a physical disc, but you get sweet cover art and a special DuckTales collector's pin!

To hype yourselves up, check out the first part of WayForward's documentary chronicling their whirlwind development journey. Also remember to set aside some fowl funds -- $14.99 for the digital release, $19.99 for the PS3 box.
