Update: Final Fantasy VI is now available in the Play Store. We’ve bought the game from Europe and the US, so it’s safe to assume this is a worldwide launch. Our review will be coming later today!
An enhanced version of Final Fantasy VI will be released this evening in the Play Store in several European countries.
Square Enix first announced it would bring Final Fantasy VI to Android in October of last year, and in December we got to see the first trailer for the game, embedded below, albeit in an unofficial, poor quality version.
Update: official trailer:
Now it seems that FF VI for Android is going to hit the Play Store in a matter of hours, as announced on Twitter by Square Enix Europe.

The game will be available in English, German, French, and Spanish, but it’s not clear whether other European countries will get it in un-localized versions. As usual with Square Enix’ Android ports, Final Fantasy VI will be carrying a hefty price tag of £10.99/€14.99.
The gaming coming today on the Play Store is an enhanced edition of the landmark title first launched in 1994. FF VI for Android will still be 2D, but it will have better graphics and feature a tweaked battle system to make advancing through the game less tedious.
No news yet on the international release of the title – Square Enix has been keeping mum on when we can expect FF VI (or Final Fantasy III, as it’s sometimes known) in the United States, but the European release is an encouraging sign. Our Joe Hindy can’t wait to review the heck out of it, and we’re sure many of you in the US are just as excited.
We’ll update this post with the Play Store link as soon as Final Fantasy VI for Android goes live.
