Final Fantasy VI coming to iOS/Android this winter

2013-10-09 16:15:00·  2 minute read   ·  Steven Hansen@poverotti

A Final Fantasy VII re-release of some kind could appear in the future

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?
