Square Enix shows off first video footage of the mobile version of Final Fantasy VI

by: Andrew GrushDecember 23, 2013


It’s been two months since we first heard that Final Fantasy VI was making its way over to Android (and iOS). At the time all we knew is that it would arrive sometime in the winter. Not much has changed.

We still don’t have a solid release timeframe, other than we know it will arrive to Japan sometime this winter. While we know the game will be released outside of Japan, it’s unclear if Europe and North America will see the release simultaneously with Japan or if we’ll be stuck waiting a bit longer.

Square Enix might be keeping mum about when this epic classic will be arriving, but the company did show off its first mobile trailer at the Jump Festa 2014 expo in Japan. While video stream capture isn’t the best quality, it still gives us an official look at what to expect when the game does make its way to Android.

What do you think, are you excited for the mobile-optimized, enhanced version of Final Fantasy VI or do you feel playing the untouched original through an Android emulator is the better route?

    I don’t know. Sure it’s the official version but SE doesn’t give support which is really bad given the price of their games. For an example, I bought Chrono a while ago. Since 4.3, it doesn’t open and it had a lot of problems opening on tablets for a while. I’ve sent many many emails to SE and each time they say “we are working on it”. No they’re not, this is a snes game. If moving from 4.2.X to 4.3 and 4.4 requires many weeks of development, that means they have a poor core of IT developers OR they don’t care once they get your money. Plus no cloud saves is really disappointing given the amount of time a game requires.

    TLDR : Yes I want it but it is too highly priced for the little to no support they give. Never know if it will break for many months. No cloud saves sucks.

    Honestly, for nostalgia sake, I’ll stick to the emulation. And I’m using the PSX version. :-) So..really…they can stick their high priced version somewhere else.

    For a game released almost 20 years ago it should cost less than $10.
    They should really lower the price, otherwise people will stick on the original rom.

    I don’t know where is the beauty in this game.

    I don’t see significant difference between enhanced smartphone version and original. So no, I’ll stick with GBA version (psx version text is too small on my phone).
