Square-Enix have seen fit to rerelease FFVI for smartphones and have lovingly redrawn the beautiful pixel art of the original to look much worse.
It’s a shame that this is the “remake” FFVI is getting after so many years of waiting. One could almost overlook the poor art direction if the game was on an actual games device- this would be perfect for a downloadable game on 3DS and/or Vita.
Personally, I will be buying this despite how much I dislike how it looks. I know that makes me “part of the problem”, but FFVI is just one of those games for me that I’ll buy every time it’s rereleased. I even own the terrible PS1 port!
And you, dear readers, will you be picking up this new version of Final Fantasy VI? Why/why not?

Sure! Sadly I looked everywhere and could only find the cloud pattern, but it’ll be easy to make a background like ours out of it so I think it’s no problem:
We appreciate so much your message! ;-;
Here are some original/remake comparison screens.
If you want to play through FF6 (and you do) the way that we (I) recommend is still the original SNES release (available to download through the Wii shop!), though the GBA version will do fine as well. Avoid the PS1 version at all costs! The load times between every single battle and every time you open the menu will make you want to throw yourself out of a window.
Turn the brightness down, Square! This game is supposed to have a dark colour palette!
