Final Fantasy VI comes to the PSN
Final Fantasy VI is now available for PlayStation 3 and PSP owners to purchase via the PlayStation Network at £7.99 (€9.99) in Europe and other PAL territories.
Well let’s face it, it wouldn’t be Square Enix if they didn’t re-release a Final Fantasy game on a different platform and for those who have missed out (or decided to hold out) on the PSOne, Game Boy Advance and Virtual Console versions, well here is your chance.
The more observant ones among you will have noticed that Final Fantasy VI has been released before Final Fantasy V, with the latter only available in Japan. Why this is the case remains to be seen.
The PSN version is a port of the PSOne Final Fantasy VI, which is the same as the SNES version except that it included full motion videos for the opening and ending sequences, new effects for the start and end of battles, loading times (yay!), bug fixes and a bestiary and an artwork gallery and the infamous “memo save” (allowing players to save to the PlayStation’s Ram). Feel free to comment if any noticeable changes/features have been included (or taken out).
While this may not be the definitive Final Fantasy VI, it’s a good start if your curious about past Final Fantasy games or just want to re-live nostalgia. Again.
