SQUARE ENIX today announced that FINAL FANTASY I, II and III are coming to Steam and mobile platforms on July 28. The pixel remaster series delivers all the magic of the originals with quality of life upgrades done in a way that doesn’t detract from the retro feel of these masterpieces. Fans can look forward to a host of updates, including:
Re-drawn 2D pixel characters and backgrounds, featuring iconic FINAL FANTASY pixel designs by original artist Kazuko Shibuya.
Beautiful new arrangements of the soundtrack, curated under the supervision of original composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Improved gameplay, including controller and touch controls, modernized user interface, auto-combat options and more.
Enjoy the adventure with additional extras such as the bestiary, artwork gallery, music player and the ability to save at any time.
Reflecting on the long history of the beloved series, the “father of FINAL FANTASY”, Hironobu Sakaguchi, says, “When I was working on the originals, I never imagined that the FINAL FANTASY series would be remastered nearly 35 years later. The video game industry was still in its infancy at the time. Since there was no leader to follow, we had to occupy the frontline ourselves and keep moving forward. I remember how we did that with a lot of trial and error. I am very happy and grateful that Final Fantasy has survived for so long.” FINAL FANTASY brand manager and FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE producer Yoshinori Kitase added, “Every time a new Final Fantasy title is released, I think people are also curious about the origins of the series. This project started because we wanted to provide fans and new players with an easy way to enjoy these original classics, with consistent graphics and a unified user interface.” Nobuo Uematsu, the series’ composer, has this to say about the famous soundtrack of the FINAL FANTASY series: “We have rearranged all the music tracks this time. I knew from the start that I wanted to stay true to the originals, but of course I couldn’t just play the music in the original 3-tone sound, so they expanded to full-scale tracks. I also made sure that the original atmosphere was preserved and that each piece of music can be listened to separately, so that fans can always enjoy it.”
Those who pre-purchase the game on Steam will receive two exclusive wallpapers, three music tracks and a 20% discount per title. It is also possible to pre-purchase all six titles as the FINAL FANTASY I-VI bundle for even more discount.
