Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster will launch on PC and mobile devices in November, upgrading one of the best entries in the series for modern platforms.
Square Enix has revealed that Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster is launching on PC and smart devices on November 10. Square Enix has been gradually releasing Pixel Remasters of the first six Final Fantasy games, which feature pixel artwork that updates the visuals of the original games, new QoL options, and improved remakes of the original scores.
Final Fantasy 5 was released for the Super Famicom in ’92, but it never received an official English localization during its launch window. The game received an English fan translation in the early days of SNES emulation, and it would later see an official release on the original PlayStation, as part of the Final Fantasy Collection. The game follows an adventurer named Bartz, who discovers a plot to destroy the four elemental crystals, as they are imprisoning an evil warlock, named Exdeath, who wishes to use the power of the void to return all of reality to nothingness.
The release date for the next Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster has finally been revealed. According to the official Steam page for the game, FF5 Pixel Remaster will launch on November 10. The game currently has a 20% pre-purchase discount on Steam, and those who buy the game ahead of launch will receive a special soundtrack consisting of three songs, along with two wallpapers.
Final Fantasy 5 is one of the most beloved entries in the series, thanks in no small part to its job system, which expands on the concepts introduced in Final Fantasy 3. In FF3, the player only had access to the abilities of their current job. In FF5, the player was able to mix and match abilities to an extent, allowing for all kinds of custom builds. This highly customizable system meant that FF5 is also one of the easier entries in the series, as there are many broken skill combinations that can be used to easily defeat any boss in the game.
The Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters are lacking extra content that was added in remasters and ports that were released after the original game. FF5 Pixel Remaster will suffer from this a great deal, as the Game Boy Advance version of the game added new classes, stronger versions of the superbosses, and a brand new superboss, in the form of Enuo the wizard. The lack of this extra content stings, but it was mostly contained within the post-game, so not all fans engaged with it after the credits finished rolling.
