Square is giving Game Boy Advance loyalists another chance to fire up the portable with the expansive adventure Final Fantasy VI.
Final Fantasy VI was originally released in the United States under the title Final Fantasy III for the Super Nintendo, marking it as the last U.S. title to follow the differing lineage prior to the franchise’s infamous jump to part seven.
The game’s story revolves around the War of the Magi, in which the world was torn apart by creatures known as espers. When it had seemed like the espers and magic had vanished from the world, 1,000 years following the war, an esper is found frozen inside of a mine. Players embark on an epic quest to uncover its secrets and protect it from the Empire along with a large cast of playable characters.
The Game Boy Advance release marks the first time Final Fantasy VI has been available in portable form. Rolling out the red carpet for the release, Square is adding new dungeons into the mix as well as a few other new features.
Enhanced graphics flesh out the package as Square looks to release the title, which may be the system’s final big-name game, on Feb. 5.Powered by Sidelines
