The most anticipated of the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster releases will finally be releasing later this month after previously being pushed into 2022.
To celebrate, Square Enix released the news alongside a remastered arrangement of Terra’s Theme, still regarded as one of the most beautiful tracks in gaming history.
This isn’t just another wild goose chase, it’s time to move out.
The Final Fantasy VI pixel remaster launches on Steam and Mobile on February 23rd PST/GMT. In the meantime, enjoy the rearrangement of Terra’s Theme in all its majesty.

First announced in 2021, Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster was subsequently pushed out of 2021 in order to apply additional polish. The first five games in the series are already available.
The delay appears to be drawing lessons from the previous Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters, which were generally well-received but nevertheless required several patches to deal with various bugs. This is on top of ongoing complications from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Best Games of 2021
To make up for the delay, Square Enix is adding additional items for those who pre-purchase Final Fantasy 6. They include the following (bolded tracks are new):
・Locke’s Theme (Timelapse Remix)
・The Decisive Battle (Timelapse Remix)
・Terra’s Theme (Timelapse Remix)
・Searching for Friends (Timelapse Remix)
・Aria di Mezzo Carattere (Instrumental)
・FF6: 2 types of wallpapers
・FF1-6: 2 types of Pixel Remaster series wallpapers
The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series is a special collection of HD remasters featuring updated art, music, and quality-of-life improvements. The first five entries are currently available on PC, iOS, and Android. Final Fantasy 6 will launch in February 23.
