Final Fantasy V gameplay makes it the most exciting Pixel Remaster for me yet

Yesterday, Square Enix announced the release date for the Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster. While we didn't get a trailer showing off the game or its gameplay to go along with this announcement, Final Fantasy V is a known quantity by now, and we know what to expect. Even though the original SNES game never made it Stateside, Final Fantasy V eventually came to the US thanks to remakes and compilations on other platforms. With Final Fantasy VI's Pixel Remaster still some time off, Final Fantasy V might be the most exciting re-release to date, thanks in large part to its gameplay.

Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster release date revealed for Steam and mobile

Throughout the latter half of this year, Square Enix has been releasing Pixel Remasters for the first six Final Fantasy games. Square Enix started things off with a bang, releasing the Pixel Remasters for Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, and Final Fantasy III all at the same time this past summer. Final Fantasy IV followed several weeks after, and now we know when Final Fantasy V will be launching.

Final Fantasy XIV Online: Endwalker hands-on through the eyes of a complete noob

Final Fantasy XIV Online: Endwalker hands-on through the eyes of a complete noob

2021 really feels like it's been Final Fantasy XIV Online's year. The game has enjoyed an uptick in popularity and visibility, both as a place for World of Warcraft refugees who are either disappointed in Shadowlands or sick of Blizzard, but also as a game that can stand on its own as an excellent MMO. Square Enix is set to cap off a good year with the release of Final Fantasy XIV's fourth expansion, Endwalker, in November, and I recently had the chance to sit down with the expansion to test it out.

Back at E3 2021, Square Enix announced what it calls "Pixel Remasters" for the first six Final Fantasy games. The first three Pixel Remasters then launched at the end of July, with Square Enix saying that the final three were coming at a later date. It looks like Square Enix plans to release the final three Pixel Remasters one-by-one because it has now dated the Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster for PC and mobile.

Well, I’m addicted to Final Fantasy XIV Online

Well, I’m addicted to Final Fantasy XIV Online

At the moment, the MMO scene feels very robust, especially for a genre that seemed like it was on the way out just a little while ago. There is, as always, World of Warcraft in both of its retail and Classic flavors. In addition, New World is (presumably) coming out at the end of September, and Lost Ark is finally heading west sometime this fall thanks - strangely - to Amazon, even though it has its own in-house MMO to focus on. However, perhaps the most noteworthy MMO right now is Final Fantasy XIV Online.

Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters begin releasing in July

Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters begin releasing in July

Earlier this month, in the middle of Square Enix's E3 showcase, we saw a very intriguing (albeit brief) reveal. Square Enix revealed that it's remastering the first six Final Fantasy games and bringing them to PC and mobile. These so-called Pixel Remasters would remake the graphics for all six games once again, attempting to update the look of each game for modern platforms while staying at least somewhat true to the originals.

Final Fantasy I to VI are getting a Pixel Remaster series

Final Fantasy I to VI are getting a Pixel Remaster series

Square Enix just announced what may be a controversial new "spinoff" in the Final Fantasy franchise. But while Stranger Paradise Final Fantasy Origin still has to earn fans, there is little argument that the first six installments in the series don't need to prove themselves. They do, however, probably need a little brush up in terms of graphics, or at least that's what Square Enix seems to be saying in announcing the rather mysterious Pixel Remaster series for Final Fantasy 1 through 6.

Final Fantasy Origin brings Nioh’s darkness to the franchise

Final Fantasy Origin brings Nioh’s darkness to the franchise

It seems that Square Enix is really branching out its Final Fantasy series to more genres and styles of gameplay beyond its typical JRPG flavor. Last February, it announced Final Fantasy VII spinoffs that dip into action RPG and even MOBA styles of gameplay but this recent announcement might be the most un-Final Fantasy game it has ever made. With Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin, the game takes on a dark, gritty, and almost angsty turn, making it look and feel more like a Souls game and than an FF title.
