Were you aware that there's currnently a Final Fantasy VI [$14.99] event taking place in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius [Free], Square Enix's popular social RPG? Well, even if you don't play that game and are not aware of the event, you can benefit from it if you don't already own the iOS version of the full Final Fantasy VI port. In celebration of said event, Square Enix has dropped the price of Final Fantasy VI down to $6.99 from its normal price of $14.99. The game has been on sale plenty of times before, but this is in fact the lowest it has ever been, and while 7 bucks is still considered high in the world of mobile games, your money is getting you one of the all-time classic RPGs with dozens of hours of gameplay.

It's also a really fantastic port, and not only did we enjoy it in our review when it first released in early 2014, but a significant update later that year added all sorts of nice quality of life improvements like revamped virtual controls, support for MFi controllers, and some reworked UI elements. Coupled with iCloud progress saving and the iOS version is a great way to relive this classic and tote it around in your pocket. For even more in-depth info about Final Fantasy VI, check out Shaun's RPG Reload on the game as well as the RPG Reload Podcast about it and take advantage of this latest sale if you don't already have this one in your collection.

      How is this port bad? I just played through it, it was amazing start to finish.

      • korossyl

        !!!!! Was this your first time playing VI, period?

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        No!

      Except for the graphics being arguably less beautiful, whats worse than the original here ? All I see is :

      Much better UI, balanced gameplay, glitch fixes, amazing sound quality, etc. Whats worse ?

      • fabell

        I'm happy with the graphics, because they at least made the hair color the same as the unit portraits this time (unlike the blunder they made with FFV when they used Amano's concept art but failed to inform the development team they hired responsible for the animated pixel models in-game). No complaints, really. Even though it's more than 20 years old, the game still impresses. That's more than you can say for a lot of people.

      I never played the original, so for me, this port is fantastic! Sure, the SNES & GBA sprites are more appealing to my eye, but it is quickly forgotten once I dive in.

  • Milotorou

    As long as you can get over the overhauled graphics (They look worse than the original, they really do, theyre not that ugly though, I think people exaggerate things)

    The Quality of Life improvements are real though, I find it really hard to play another version now for this alone.

    • korossyl

      I actually prefer these graphics -- EXCEPT -- the color of the sea in the WoR.

    • Marvin

      I'm not a fan of the new graphics, but I don't really care. The game is phenomenal.

  • Bunion

    Was this updated recently enough to include 64 bit support or are we taking a risk by picking this up?

    • Klonis

      The game has a 64 bit update!

      • Bunion

        WEW! I'll grab it, thanks for the reply

  • Dr T

    I just finished my play through earlier this week. Well worth $7.

  • korossyl

    I really don't know if there's ANY better use of $7 on iOS, at all.

  • Kefo

    How are the controls? I hear conflicting reports about how controls are set up and how they can be horrible at times

    • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

      Had no problem with them, I really feel like I played a different game when you compare my experiences with going through this port and what other people think of it.

      • Kefo

        Is it floating joystick? Set dpad or something else?

      • jamesgecko

        Floating joystick. A bit fiddly to face the correct direction in the correct location sometimes.

      • Kefo

        Thanks

    • Onikage725

      The pad defaults to 8 directions. I find it very useful to switch it to 4. The game is designed for 4 axis movement. My son, young and intuitive mobile gamer untainted by nostalgia that he is, recently started this game and complained about the movement. I said, "Oh, wait a sec," and changed it. He's had no issues since.
