Final Fantasy I through VI are getting remastered again, this time with 2D pixel graphics

Final Fantasy I through VI are getting remastered again, this time with 2D pixel graphics

Square Enix announced at E3 that it's remastering its classic Final Fantasy games with 2D pixel graphics. Final Fantasy I through VI will see all new releases on mobile and PC, each as a separate title. Clearly, Square is looking to sell these games all over again since many of the previous remasters offer graphics fans don't like, whether that be the dated and undetailed 3D graphics of III and IV or the much-hated redesigned mobile graphics used in V and VI. So even though it's nice to see that Square has finally figured out that its classic pixel graphics are what fans want, it's pretty tiring to see Square constantly reselling its older games over and over.

The latest Final Fantasy port to hit the Play Store is a fan favorite

In 2016 Square Enix released Final Fantasy VII and IX on Android, but VIII was still missing from the collection, a point of contention with fans over the last few years. Well, out of nowhere, Square has just released Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on the Play Store, and it's on sale for $16.99 until April 4th, which is when the price of the JRPG will jump up to $20.99.

Two new Final Fantasy VII games are coming to Android

Sony recently held a State of Play digital livestream where a host of developers and publishers announced new games for Sony's platform, and so Square Enix revealed an enhanced and expanded version of Final Fantasy VII Remake while also taking the time to announce two new mobile games that are themed around FF VII. The first is called Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier, and it will be a battle royale. The second game is called Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, and it will offer a single-player experience. Both titles will be free-to-play.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is finally here, and the wait wasn't worth it

We've known since June of 2019 that Square Enix would bring Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition to Android, and after several more announcements, we learned the game would be released on August 27th, 2020. In case you didn't realize, that's today, and so Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is officially available on the Play Store as a free-to-play release, with cross-platform co-op available to free and paid players alike. This setup affords fans an easy way to test the game while also boosting co-op for everyone, and if you'd like to unlock the entirety of the title, you'll have to plunk down $25.99.

Tales of Crestoria is the latest gacha RPG to land on Android, and it's a buggy mess

Tales of Crestoria is the latest gacha RPG to land on Android, and it's a buggy mess

Yesterday (July 15th), many of those who pre-registered for the release of Tales of Crestoria received a notification the gacha RPG was available on Android. Of course, Bandai Namco decided that Google's pre-reg system exists to be abused, so the game wasn't actually available, but was instead released while the servers were still in maintenance. This resulted in the Play Store listing being flooded with 5-star reviews before the game was playable since the "release" was tentatively called a pre-load by eager fans sticking it to anyone that left a 1-star review after receiving a release announcement for an unreleased game.

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

SINoALICE is the latest RPG from Yoko Taro, and it's available today for the first time in the West

Yoko Taro's mobile RPG SINoALICE will finally see a worldwide release after an indefinite delay last year. The game was initially published in Japan back in 2017 by Nexon, and yet it would appear that the publisher wants nothing to do with the title anymore, and so Nexon is transferring the license to the original developer Pokelabo. Interestingly Pokelabo has just announced that it's cooperating with Square Enix to bring the game to the West on July 1st, though I have to wonder if this announcement is simply a last-ditch effort to make money with an aging mobile game that even Nexon couldn't bring to fruition as a global release.

Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is a collection-based RPG from Square Enix, now available worldwide

Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is a collection-based RPG from Square Enix, now available worldwide

Much like Dragon Quest of the Stars (coincidentally released today), Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe is an older gacha RPG that's coming to the West. You see, Square Enix actually released Romancing SaGa Re;UniverSe in Japan back in 2018, and apparently the title is coming to the West with an English translation in tow sometime this summer, and guess what, this English version just landed on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is available for download a day early, but you can't play it yet (Update: Out now)

Square Enix has revealed this morning that its mobile RPG Dragon Quest of the Stars is officially available on the Google Play Store for pre-download. We last heard about Dragon Quest of the Stars back in January when Square announced that the title was available for pre-registration and that it would be officially released on February 25th. Well, clearly today isn't the 25th, but you can indeed install Dragon Quest of the Stars a day early if you'd like to prepare for tomorrow's release.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Square Enix just announced that its free-to-play role-playing game Dragon Quest of the Stars will come to the West in early 2020. On top of this announcement, the developer has stated that starting today mobile gamers in select regions can register to participate in a closed beta test for the Android version of the game. Supposedly this is a "critically acclaimed" title in Japan that's racked up over 20-million installs, though, from the looks of it, the game is a casual RPG with a popular brand slapped on top.
