After its announcement during E3 2021, Final Fantasy fans have harshly criticized the strategy implemented by Square Enix towards Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, not only on the aesthetic side, but also on the lack of availability of the new collection on consoles. Well, Square Enix would be more than willing to bring the old titles to other consoles like PS4 and Nintendo Switch as well, as long as certain conditions are met.
Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster may release on consoles, Square Enix says
In a recent Q&A post published on the Japanese site of Square Enix, the software house said that it may consider bringing Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster on consoles only if there is “enough demand” from the public.
For the time being, the Japanese company has confirmed the release of the title only on Android, iOS, and Steam, but soon this could change.
In this case, Square Enix expects big sales results before they can release games like Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy VI to gamers on modern consoles. In any case, Square Enix has not confirmed the release date yet for the following games in the series.
Among other details revealed in the Q&A, the presence of new OSTs re-arranged by Nobuo Uematsu, a re-balancing of the games, and the possibility of taking into account the monsters encountered during the adventure through a monster book was confirmed.
