Square Enix wants £245 for its Final Fantasy 1-6 Pixel Remaster 35th Anniversary Edition

Square Enix officially unveiled its Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 over the weekend.

This collection is slated to release digitally in the spring and consists of Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 2, Final Fantasy 3, Final Fantasy 4, Final Fantasy 5, and Final Fantasy 6. Each game is said to offer “vivid 2D pixel graphics and the soundtrack- its beautifully rearranged”.

Square Enix says each of these remasters, which can be purchased as a single bundle with all six games or individually, will feature improved gameplay, a “modernized user interface” and other amenities such as a “bestiary, gallery of ‘illustrations and a music player’.

However, if you want to get your hands on the Final Fantasy 1-6 Pixel Remaster 35th Anniversary Edition, I’m sorry to say it won’t come cheap. In fact, you’ll consider parting with £244.99.

This anniversary edition is currently available for pre-order exclusively through the Square Enix Storewith limited stock available.

It includes a physical collection of all games for PS4 or Nintendo Switch, as well as the Anniversary Edition merchandise box. This package contains a vinyl record set containing newly arranged game music (see header image), an art book featuring character pixel art (all artwork in this collection has been “supervised by pixel master, Kazuko Shibuya”), and eight stylized pixel art characters. All of this comes with a lenticular sleeve for the game package.

If you’re not worried about all the extra bells and whistles that come with this anniversary bundle, there’s also the option of buying a standard physical edition of the games for a more modest price of £64.99.

As with the Anniversary Edition, however, these physical copies are also Square Enix Store exclusives, with limited stock available.

“For those who haven’t experienced these incredible games on PC and mobile, the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series… [gives] fans a chance to relive some of the most beloved RPGs of all time in a way that perfectly captures the spirit of those original games,” says Square Enix.

“But if anything, we’re even more excited for new fans to experience them for the very first time.”
