When Will Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters Be Available for the Switch and PlayStation?
The release date is – April 19, 2023! That is a month earlier than the previously predicted date. Now its official – all six Pixel Remaster Final Fantasy games will be released on the same day for Switch and PlayStation and will be offered as a bundle for $75 or individually for $12 to $18.
When we talked about these remasters before, there was a concern that these games would be simply ported from PC and mobile platforms without many changes. Fortunately, from Square Enix’s latest announcement, it was revealed that Switch and PlayStation versions will come with a few new changes:
- New Pixel Font will be added (on PC this had to be modded because the default font was awful)
- The option to switch between original retro music and newly arranged versions of the OST
- More options to make the games easier by adjusting encounter rates, Gil, EXP gain, etc.
