Square-Enix has announced that the release of Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster will fall into February 2022.
The delay was announced in a tweet from the official Final Fantasy Twitter account on Tuesday. The statement noted that the team is aiming to “bring you the best experience possible” and therefore needed a bit more time to “apply final polish while finishing development on the game.” In addition, the tweet included promises of bonus items for those who have pre-purchased the game. A Steam news post has shared that these items will include a timelapse remix of Locke’s Theme, an instrumental version of Aria di Mezzo Carattere, and two additional wallpapers each for all six of the games included in the Pixel Remaster series.
Final Fantasy VI will be the final release in the Pixel Remaster series, which was first revealed during E3 2021. As with Final Fantasy I-V, the sixth entry will bring a variety of visual and audio upgrades to the classic Super Nintendo title. Seeing as Final Fantasy VI is widely considered the best game of the pre-3D series, it stands to reason that Square-Enix wants to ensure they get things just right on this remaster before releasing it to its hardcore fans.
Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster will launch in February of 2022 on PC and mobile devices. You can add the game to your Steam wishlist right now.
