Final Fantasy 1, 2, And 3 Pixel Remasters Releasing Later This Month
Square Enix’s E3 2021 presentation was full of divisive reveals, one of which being the announcement of the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters. A remastering of the first six Final Fantasy games, the project represents yet another re-release of some of the Japanese publisher’s earlier games, this time with updated sprites and a rearranged soundtrack. Now, it’s been revealed that the first three games in the set will be releasing later this month.
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3 will be releasing on July 29 on PC through Steam and mobile platforms. The first two games will run for $11.99 each, while Final Fantasy 3 – 6 will each cost $17.99. The good news is that there’s currently a bundle available on Steam that offers a 22% discount on all the games, dropping the price from $95.94 to a still weighty $74.82.
If the reader is wondering why the games are so expensive, you’re not alone! The games feature updated pixel art by original artist Kazuko Shibuya as well as a rearranged soundtrack overseen by Nobuo Uematsu. They also feature refreshed UIs for “improved ease of play” as well as controller support and touch controls for mobile, as well as a few other goodies like a bestiary and illustration gallery. Still, some fans have already expressed some misgivings about the questionable font shown in the trailer. Additionally, these are remasters of the original Final Fantasy games, which means that any content added into the games in subsequent re-releases won’t be present here.
The price is rather steep for the entire collection of Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster games, though if this is your first foray into Square Enix’s earlier FF titles, this may be the bundle for you. As for the rest of us, we should be able to make due with our existing remasters.
The Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3 Pixel Remaster games will be releasing on July 29th, 2021 for PC through Steam and mobile platforms. Final Fantasy 4 – 6 will be releasing later this year.
