Final Fantasy VI Heads to iPhone and Android – Final Fantasy VII Could Be Next

Final Fantasy VI

Many gamers have raged on the debate between Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VI, which is the best FF game of all time? Well, if you’d like to give this game a run on the go, I think you’ll find that it’s definitely an incredible open world / linear hybrid experience that will forever be in the Role Playing Game hall of fame ever since its debut in Japanese as well as English on Super Nintendo / Super Famicon. I even got chiphop / nerdcore artist MegaRan, who created Black Materia: Final Fantasy VII, to discuss the possibility of making FF6-inspired hip hop in the future in our first RGN Interview with Random AKA MegaRan.

For those who never played the game, it is an incredible experience involving powerful human philosophical thinking resulting from a chaotic inner struggle within the species. At its core its gameplay is the foundation of the JRPG sub-genre in every way. Some of the themes of the storyline include corruption, the land of the living vs land of the dead, the nature of magic and its effect on human kind throughout the times, the magical gods incarnate and as summons, a factory harvesting magic energy from a living race from another realm, and even playing the game before and after it was completely destroyed. Beyond that, there are some of the most memorable RPG characters in existence, hidden characters and many easter eggs, an open-world map with lots to discover via Airships, on foot, and other methods beyond the Chocobo. Truly a game Final Fantasy or RPG fans in general should not miss out on.

Final Fantasy VI is currently available from Square Enix on PlayStation Network (compatible with PS Vita, PS3, and PSP devices) and will now arrive on Android and iPhone’s Apple App Store for iOS devices. Originally released in 1994, and never remastered to this date, this version of the game will be slightly tweaked for enhanced smartphone graphics marking a precedent for enhancing the visuals of a game that has been set in stone and is also classic.

It is likely, based on Square Enix remakes on smartphone as of late, that the graphics will be very true to their original appearance back in ’94 on SNES. Square Enix has done a good job of bringing earlier 8-bit titles to the smartphone market over the past few years particularly. Square Enix will consider remaking Final Fantasy VII for smartphones soon, possibly made possible only because of the tech advancements and early adoption culture of the smartphone market.
