Square Enix announces Final Fantasy pixel remaster release date

Six game bundle costs £54.

Square Enix has announced a release date for three games in its Final Fantasy pixel remaster collection.

The pixel remaster Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 2, and Final Fantasy 3 will all launch on 28th July for mobile platforms and Steam.

The remasters feature updated 2D pixel character and background graphics, rearrange soundtracks, overseen by original composer Nobuo Uematsu, improved gameplay, auto-battle option, illustration gallery, music player, and the ability to save at any time.

Release dates for next three games, Final Fantasy 4 to 6 are still to be announced.

Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer said: “This project began because we wanted to create a convenient way for fans and new players to enjoy these original classics, with consistent graphics and a unified user interface.”

Uematsu also confirmed that Square Enix will be rearranging all of the collection’s music tracks. “One of the first ideas I had was to make sure to stay faithful to the originals,” he said. “But of course, I couldn’t just leave it in the original three-tone sound, so they have been built up into full-scale tracks.”

He added: “I have made sure that the original atmosphere has been retained and each can be listened to as separate music pieces, so that fans can enjoy.”

All six titles are available for pre-purchase on Steam and those who pre-order will receive exclusive wallpapers, music tracks, and 20 percent discount for each title. The full bundle cost is £54.54, with individual games priced between £8.99 and £12.99.
