Following the news from earlier today with Final Fantasy 6 ($14.99) and Final Fantasy 5 ($14.99) confirmed to be delisted on Steam to only have the new Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster versions available, Square Enix has put up Steam pages for Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 2, Final Fantasy 3, Final Fantasy 4, Final Fantasy 5, and Final Fantasy 6 confirming the prices, features, pre-order bonus on PC, and more including the launch date for the first three games in the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series. The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series begins on July 28 with Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3 all available to pre-order on Steam right now while Final Fantasy 4, 5, and 6 will follow later. The new features for some of the games on Steam indicate a rearranged soundtrack, improved interface, autobattle, extras like a music player, gallery, and more. Watch the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster trailer below:

The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series is priced beginning $11.99 each for Final Fantasy 1 and 2. Final Fantasy 3,4,5, and 6 are priced at $17.99 each going by the Steam bundle page. Final Fantasy are available to pre-order at 20% off on Steam right now. The mobile pricing will most likely match Steam. On Steam, pre-ordering nets you some music and wallpapers. This is also available for the bundle. On iOS and Android, the apps have been updated to reflect that they are (Old versions) just like Steam confirming that they will be delisted and replaced with the new Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster versions. If you own and have them installed, you should have updates indicating the name change now.

As of now, there is no clarity on whether iOS and Android get a discounted bundle like Steam. Square Enix says people who own the current versions will be able to redownload them but they cannot guarantee the games will work across different devices and operating systems in the future. Definitely not a good thing considering these were premium priced games. The Steam store page has some screenshots and they look great barring the font which looks awful near the pixel art and in the menus. Check out the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster games on Steam here. What do you think so far and will you be buying the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster games on iOS if you already owned prior versions?
