Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster during its livestream earlier this week, but fans are baffled by the publisher’s platform decisions. The trailer – which has a near-50 per cent dislike ratio on YouTube – shows how classic RPGs Final Fantasy through Final Fantasy VI are getting a re-release – but on PC and smartphones only.
Many had expected this to deploy on consoles as well. “This is like finding a lotto ticket and realising it expired yesterday,” one poster wrote. “The best part about this trailer is the punch to the gut at the very end,” another added, referring to the platform logos at its conclusion. Given the robust feedback, we’re confident a port to PlayStation 5 and PS4 will happen eventually – but this announcement was, shall we say, misjudged.
