See classic FF heroes reimagined in 16-bit from All The Bravest
January 18, 2013
We haven't posted news about it - or much of anything else - but Square Enix released a new Final Fantasy title for iOS devices earlier this week, Final Fantasy: All The Bravest.
The game aims to mix the FF series' trademark ATB system with fast-paced, touch-based iOS gameplay, allowing up to 35 characters in your party for hectic-looking battles. The game is also a retro FF fan's dream - it's largely built using the sprites, music and other assets from the SNES era of Final Fantasy, with new things built out in that style to represent newer games.
The game itself actually isn't all that great,
as IGN explain in this video
, but worse still it features some
in-app purchases - the kind of things you'd expect from a free-to-play game, not one with a charge attached even for the base game. We'd recommend you not buy it.
With that said, there is one particularly cool thing fans will be eager to see - those in-app purchases unlock 35 classic FF characters, all of them reimagined in 16-bit sprites. If you've ever wondered what Red XIII, Steiner or Balthier would've looked like on the SNES, now you can find out.
) has captured images of these sprites - so now you can check them out outside the game and without having to buy in to that scandalous in-app purchase scheme. Pretty cool, huh?
