Good to see Cecil’s Darkness attack in there. One of the early reports suggested the port is based on the NA EasyType (SNES) version, which had that attack and many other moves removed.

Note that the Easytype version was based on US II, not the other way round.

Oh so the original Japanese version Cecil had the group dark attack? I love it and thats why I love the psp version.

They seem to have been including as much as they can from the previous iterations besides the after story stuff from the FF1 and FF2 psp release. I’m a fan. More things in the game is generally better.

I just REALLY wish they'd give us a goddamn date, cayse ain't no way in hell these games aren't done already and they're just teasing us Even SteamDB thought the release was gonna be today, but nope, still nothing

Given the forest tiles are bugged in the screenshots and the video footage they released recently, I’m pretty sure they’re working right up to the wire on these.

It updated from "Planned Release Date:2021" to "This item is not yet available"

Super frustrating that they won't just put out a date though.

Looks pretty good to me! I want to play FFVI the most.

When is it comming out? 🙂

ID: h9kgzjw

Early September

Idk, it just says 2021 :/

ID: h9k4hy2

It was rumored to drop today as Steam had it as the listed release date, but it should come very soon.

What’s happening in the second to last shot?

ID: h9l66bl

That’s the bestiary. Every Pixel Remaster has one and that’s what it looks like on all of them.

Why do they not spend even 5 minutes on the text in these things

I wish these were on the switch. I also wish they would do a remake for 6 similar to the DS version of 4.

ID: h9kmifp

I’d prefer to see 6 done like Octopath Traveller

for 6 similar to the DS version of 4.

Not with those bighead small limbs models please

So there is a product called the razer Kishi for phones that I use with steam link. It works great (I do have good internet in my house) and opens up a huge library of games I can play anywhere in my house from my pc to my phone to my big screen tv. If you are finding that you often say I wish this was for switch this might be a good solution and often the games are lower cost on steam as well.

The release date was updated from “planned 2021” to “soon”. I cannot wait 😀

The sprites look good, but what is that screenshot with a magnifying glass and some enemies on the world map?

ID: h9kgp0q

Bestiary. It’s in all of the Pixel Remasters

The overworld looks a lot brighter to me. Am I crazy?

ID: h9kll81

You’re not crazy, they used brighter colors across the board, but there’s also several color combinations that were flat out impossible on the snes.

Have we got a release date for the second half of the trilogy? The first one was great!

13 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:20 ID: h9kzz3a

Super excited! after play PR for 1,2&3 I’m excited to see what quality of life updates they add if any at all. PR of 2 is the best version of the game and removing CP or Job Sickness from 3 has made that a much more comfortable experience.

What is the second last picture with bombs and goblin about?

I can't wait for this and all other pixel remasters to come to console.

ID: h9kmzln

This exactly, when I can sit on my couch and play this on my PlayStation then I will buy all 6 but not until then cause I already have multiple copies of each game as it is. I just want to easily play it on my big screen.

I’m digging the backgrounds but damn do the PSP sprites look so much better

ID: h9lcpsj

Psp are gorgeous but they are not pixel art. These are incredibly close to the snes sprites, a testament to the quality of the originals.

Why is this font SO HARD TO READ?!?!?!

ID: h9l612d

Hard to read? What are you talking about? I can read it just fine.

18 : Anonymous2021/08/19 16:56 ID: h9jxii9

Still with the shitty English font.

Yeah, I know there's an easy fix, but I just hate the fact Square Enix is doubling down on it.

ID: h9kwg9g

Okay I really don’t understand why people don’t like the font. Can you explain. It to me? It looks like JRPG don’t. I can read all the letters. What’s the issue?

ID: h9k8bqh

It's really not a problem at all and once you start playing it you completely ignore it. It's such a nitpicky thing that doesn't affect gameplay at all

ID: h9k4v20

The font sucks, but tbh it sucks less in-game than in screenshots.

19 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:05 ID: h9kxwaj

bruh couldn't they just port psp version, it looked hell better. Would love to see 6 remastered in a same way

ID: h9lczw9

I also would like to see a port of the psp version, but i am happy to have a pixel remaster of ffiv too.

20 : Anonymous2021/08/19 16:56 ID: h9jxggw

So, so lazy. They just raised the color values to mess up the shadows, as if they were porting it to the GBA and had to account for people not having backlit screens. Look at that overworld shot outside of Baron compared to the original.

ID: h9k5rwv

So what? I can see it’s brighter now, but it still looks damn good.

The job titles are there, I wonder if the job titles will be in FFVI. That's one of my favorite parts of the Japanese release and I'm so happy that these remasters seem to be direct JP ports. I wonder about the esper names.

Is anyone else wondering why 3/4 are getting pixel remasters when they have 3D remasters already that act as fairly definitive versions of the game? I dunno, I think the pixel work is pretty and if that’s your jam then cool, but I find the 3D remasters more appealing

31 : Anonymous2021/08/19 20:28 ID: h9ks94k

The 3d chibi remakes was honestly not my thing. So I'm excited for a more remastered original feel like the pixal remaster.

32 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:05 ID: h9kxuoz

There is a good chunk of the Final Fantasy fan base who didn't like the art style in the 3d remakes. (I also found the voice acting terrible and the remastered music worse than the originals, and the overall arty style to simply not match the tone of the game correctly in the case of 4. But that's just me.) The gameplay in them is great, but I'd rather go back and play the GBA ports instead because I liked the graphics of the originals far more.

I think most of the people who fall into this category with me are the people who played them back when they were originally released. We enjoyed the way they looked and we're all old codgers now who are stuck in our ways yelling at kids to get off our lawns, lol.

The 3D remasters also touched up the story and pacing of the game quite a bit. IMO, those changes made both games much slower and more dull. I prefer the 2D versions by far.

34 : Anonymous2021/08/19 21:53 ID: h9l4pbs

Aside from just trying to have a more definitive collection of pixel remasters of all sprite based FF games, I personally think these are looking to be nicer versions of 4 and 5. The 3D DS era chibi sprites might have their charm, but the UI in those older versions were honestly a mess.

Never hurts to have more options at the end of the day though, I personally don't find the new font and UI to be all that offensive like everyone's making it out to be, and personally am stoked for the release.

35 : Anonymous2021/08/19 22:58 ID: h9ldiuy

I love how snappy combat is in this series. The 3d combat is incredibly sluggish in comparison. The new combat makes playing these games so much more pleasant. Also the music is incredible.

36 : Anonymous2021/08/19 19:56 ID: h9knihv

I don't know, I kinda like the DS version graphics better...
