For the past two years now, Square Enix has been trading on its storied past, releasing classic Final Fantasy games on mobile platforms. The publisher this week finally reached Final Fantasy VI, which can now be bought for $16 through the Google Play app store.
Final Fantasy VI is the last of the series’ sprite-based 2D games and is considered by many fans to be one of the best (if not the best) games in the series. The game’s story revolves around a young girl named Terra and a larger cast of memorable characters while also touching on the interplay between magic and steampunk.
For its mobile release, Final Fantasy VI has gotten a visual makeover, including smoothed characters and art. The game’s controls have also been significantly altered for touch interfaces, which does have an effect on certain in-game events.
Fans who can look past the game’s new visuals may be able to enjoy the 2006 remake version of Final Fantasy VI anywhere they take their smartphones. Meanwhile new fans to the series willing to cough up $16 for a mobile title will be able to experience one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made.
