Master of Pixels
The Final Fantasy series is older than a lot of gamers out there. It had a heavy hand in shaping RPGs as we know them today. However, many of us haven’t played the early games. You don’t need to buy a NES or SNES because they are coming out on newer platforms in Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series.
The remastered collection was first released on PC and mobile devices over the course of 2021-22. Square Enix has now announced that all six games in Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will be coming out at the same time later this month for Nintendo Switch and PS4.
The announcement of this release is notably sans-Xbox. While Square Enix has not directly addressed why, there is a trend of Square Enix skipping Xbox when it comes to Final Fantasy releases. Some absences can be attributed to Sony’s timed exclusive deals, but with Nintendo Switch in the mix, it’s hard to nail down a reason this time.
The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series launches on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch at 8am PDT / 4pm BST on April 19th: https://t.co/uCTUAPYoRk
