The long-awaited Final Fantasy VI has now been released for the iOS Appstore on the 5th of February. Being regularly voted among the best of the Final Fantasy series, the sixth in the Final Fantasy instalment promises a great time of fun and one of the best RPG games on the iOS for 2014.
The launch of the Final Fantasy VI for iOS devices has been long coming. With news of its impending launch since last October by long time Square-Enix producer Takashi Tokita during an interview, who had also mentioned about the potential launch of the Final Fantasy VII in the series.
Features of Final Fantasy VI
- Game data saved with iCloud can now be shared across devices! At home or away, on your iPhone or iPad, pick the play style that’s best for you.
- All graphics have been painstakingly recreated, bringing the world of FINAL FANTASY VI to your mobile device for the very first time! Kazuko Shibuya, one of the graphics designers involved in the FINAL FANTASY series from the very start, personally worked on the main characters and supervised the recreation of the game’s graphics.
- Square Enix’s vast experience in A-list smartphone RPG titles has been harnessed in implementing intuitive user-friendly controls that make the game easy to play on touch screens. The battle interface has received particular attention, with a complete overhaul for use on your smartphone.
- This smartphone release includes the new magicites and events that were introduced in the 2006 remake.
In addition to the above, Final Fantasy VI also features two new systems to make the game much more enjoyable and playable. Firstly would be the ability to tap a question mark icon, which will give you directions on where to go next. Secondly, comes an album feature that lets you see the major elements of the story. Now, these might seem to be minor improvements, but will help much, as compared to going to GameFaqs or similar websites for walk-through and flipping between sites as we seek to not miss anything.
If you have looked for something in the realms of old school RPG games, with a lot of grinding (reportedly this version for iOS and Android will have less grinding) and yet having much game longevity, Final Fantasy VI might be something you would be looking for.
