Square Enix has revealed that a modified version of Final Fantasy VI will be released for iOS and Android this winter.
Director and Producer Takashi Tokita told Kotaku that “it is basically like a remake of the original VI but there have been some enhancements.”
“The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will be the same. For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don’t have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is.” The graphics will still be 2D but sharpened.
Tokita also revealed that the next release in the Legacy series will be a 3D remake of Final Fantasy: The After Years. When questioned about other plans for the future, Tokita said, “We are aware that we have tons of VII fans. We have VII fans in our own company. If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII.”
