Super Nintendo RPG Epic 'Final Fantasy VI' Arrives On Android

Final-Fantasy-VI-AndroidAlthough many retro gamers will fondly remember Final Fantasy's seventh outing as the greatest adventure ever, its predecessor is also often found topping RPG lists. As of today you can finally settle the score and decide which comes out top as Final Fantasy VI has been remastered for Android based devices.

Instead of doing a straight port of the Super Nintendo adventure or even relying on emulation, Square Enix have gone all out to ensure Final Fantasy VI has been given a complete refresh.

Similar to some of their other re-masterings, this all new release smooths out the once-pixelated visuals and introduces a more modern vector look. While this may be alarming to some retro gamers, you can relax knowing that Kazuko Shibuya, one of the original artists who worked on the title, was drafted in to ensure the RPG was done justice graphically.

But if that wasn't enough already, Square Enix have also included the additional content from the 2006 Game Boy Advance re-release, along with several adjustments to help redefine elements of the game for touchscreen controls.

The only downside to this new release is that it seems to be sporting one of Square Enix's infamous mobile application price-tags. Gamers wanting to get in on the action will need to set aside a massive £10.99, something which in Square Enix's defence, is a fraction of the cost of the Super Nintendo version.

Me too! It'll be well worth the pricetag if the controls are decent (I was stung by Chrono Trigger) and there isn't that ridiculous battle load time that we saw in the PS1 version!!

It really looks quite good actually, man.

Don't go all purist on me now, it's a remake. A damn good one so far.

Only changes I mind are a couple that were implemented to keep it the lowest maturity rating.

(dont go writing me an essay about how you played this on whatever bla bla bla, I'm old and have played everything and I deem it EXCELLENT!) (hehehehe ;)

No man, it really doesn't look awful.

Loving this port. Not perfect but definitely improved in some great ways!
I wish it weren't so expensive but I bought it day one anyhow.

Looks like a fan remake using RPG Maker. Looks like garbage to me. I'll take any other port over this one.
