Final Fantasy 6’s pixel remaster will be available to pick up on Steam in February 2022. Square Enix says it’s giving itself the “necessary time to apply final polish” while completing development on the game, so sit tight. You’re also getting some new items if you pre-purchase the game individually or have already bought the bundle, such as special soundtracks with remixes of Locke’s Theme and The Decisive Battle alongside two unique wallpapers.
The pixel remasters of Final Fantasy 4 and 5 were released on September 8 and November 10, respectively, so you’re facing a longer wait this time, but, hey, Final Fantasy 6’s pixel remaster should be out around the same time as the Steam Deck, so that’s something.
We recently got a wee glimpse of what the dev team is working on in an issue of Famitsu. The opera scene, in particular, has a 2.5D pixel vibe that’s reminiscent of Octopath Traveller, though I’m keen to see how the rest of the game will look in comparison.
