We’ve got some good news for retro RPG fans: Square Enix has announced that they’re bringing Final Fantasy VI to iOS by the end of the year. The game, originally released in the US as Final Fantasy III for Super Nintendo, will also include some “enhancements,” like requiring less grinding for experience points, as well as a graphical update, similar to Final Fantasy V on iOS.
Final Fantasy VI is widely considered one of the best RPGs of all time, with a large cast of characters, a sprawling world to explore, lots of side quests, and even an interactive opera. What more could you want in a game?
On a related note, long-time Final Fantasy producer Takashi Tokita told Kotaku, “We are aware that we have tons of [Final Fantasy] 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.”
Personally, I think VI trumps VII, but the way I see it, the more Final Fantasy games on iOS, the better.
