The critically-acclaimed Final Fantasy VI will be available on Steam in 16 December. This PC version of the game will apparently feature modified graphics done by character designer Kazuko Shibuya. The controls and the “active time battle system” will be PC-optimised as well. Final Fantasy VI will also support Steam trading cards and achievements.
Originally released for the SNES back in 1994, Final Fantasy VI is about a group of rebels seeking to overthrow the Imperial dictatorship. It is considered to be a “landmark title” for the RPG genre, in addition to being IGN’s best RPG game of all time. The game has numerous re-releases for several platforms such as the Game Boy Advance and the Wii.
Actually, the game is already on Steam, except that you can’t play it until its official PC release. For Malaysian Final Fantasy fans, you will be a little disappointed because if you try to take a peek at the game in the Steam Store, the site will say that the item is “currently unavailable” in your region.
As for our views on its graphical changes, the game doesn’t really look as impressive as in the original port. The art style looks similar to the iOS and Android versions, and when it is smoothed out, it still makes the game a little less beautiful. However if the graphics are a small concern to the fans, then good for them.
