fantasy 6

Back in October, Square Enix director Takashi Tokita announced that his team was working on a mobile version of its popular Final Fantasy VI title. The game, he said, will be landing on iOS and Android platforms “this winter.”

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know right now, and the winter timeframe means we may not see anything until mid-March. But we have seen a couple of screenshots from the game, and this week Square Enix posted a trailer…

Unfortunately, just like the screenshots, not much can be gleaned from the clip. It’s an odd trailer, with just a snipped of gameplay video showing in a tiny window for 20 seconds. But then again, Square Enix isn’t exactly conventional.

We do know that the game isn’t going to a straight port of the original though. Tokita has said that it’s going to be more “like a remake of the console version of Final Fantasy VI,” with some enhancements and re-polished 2D graphics.

As usual, we’ll let you know as soon as we have more details about the release of Final Fantasy VI. In the meantime, feel free to check out these other Final Fantasy releases: Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iOS.

    Square Enix can suck my …..

    They are lazy pieces of monkey crap that simply come out with a new game for a quick buck, then leave it for dead and NEVER update it again.

    Example: Final Fantasy 1, 2, 3, Secret of Mana, and Chrono Trigger STILL haven’t been updated to the 4 inch screen of the iPhone 5/5s and it’s been TWO YEARS.

    Imagine once iOS 7 controllers become more and more popular for gaming and how nice it would be to have support for it on a Final Fantasy game. Nope! Since it’s Square Enix you can bet your ass they won’t ever update their games with anything meaningful down the line.

    Until they change their ways Square Enix doesn’t deserve a dime from me or anyone else.

      You do realize they are constantly trying to develope new games and update current ones right? They don’t want the game to seem stretched and thus ruin the experience of the game. I prefer it not to fill my screen if it’s going to look stretched and disproportionate. Maybe you shouldn’t need the latest and greatest iPhone? Square Enix makes great games that are very complex. If you don’t like what you see you try develope something as complex otherwise keep that shit to yourself. You do realize they aren’t forcing you to buy it? You do also realize the ported games weren’t meant for hi res right?? They would need to redo all the graphics on the entire game. It’s just a port!!
