Square Enix Adding Wrong Final Fantasy VI Version To Steam


Final Fantasy VI finally heads to Steam, even if it’s the least enjoyable version of the game.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Final Fantasy VI is not only the best Final Fantasy game, but it is my favorite video game of all time. I’ve played and replayed it countless times, even introducing the story and gameplay to my fellow colleagues here at GameSided for the very first time. The announcement that Final Fantasy VI is finally coming to the PC via Valve’s Steam service should be music to my ears. Alas, it is a port of the worst version possible; the iOS and Android release.

That’s right, the inexplicably-priced $15.99 USD version of Final Fantasy VI that currently plagues Google Play and Apple Store is coming to Steam. That means the original SNES version, the Game Boy Advanced version (which could have been audibly improved to have the original SNES sounds by Square Enix themselves) and the PlayStation anthology versions all remain in the Square Enix ether, sitting as currently unavailable options that would greatly surpass the glossy, smoothed-over, babby easy mode enabled mobile version.

Final Fantasy VI for PC will be released on December 16th at an unknown price, with the PC system requirements for Final Fantasy VI are below. I’m not quite sure how it takes up almost 1 GB of hard drive space, but since this version includes Steam achievements and trading cards, I’m sure that is taken into account.

  • OS: Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1
  • Processor: Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Storage: 950 MB available space
