Square Enix announced today that it will release Final Fantasy VI for iOS and Android devices this winter. Square director and producer Takashi Tokita told Kotaku that the game will be "like a remake of the original VI."
The mobile version of the game will feature sharpened 2D graphics and an updated battle system.
"The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will be the same," explained Tokita "For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don't have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is."
Tokita also said he would consider releasing VII in the future depending on the success of VI"We are aware that we have tons of VII fans," he noted. "We have VII fans in our own company. If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII."
Square Enix is also preparing to release a 3D remake of Final Fantasy: The After Years to mobile devices in the near future.
