As we all know, the Nintendo DS was the only console/handheld to receive a completely remade and remastered version of Final Fantasy III for the DS. When asked if they would remake other entries in the series they had said "if the remake of FFIII sells well, we would love to".

So FFIII sells extremely well and sticking to their word, Square-Enix releases Final Fantasy IV DS. Not only is it remade and remastered but it has voice acting as well! It not only sold well, but got excellent reviews too. So it would only make sense that they'd release FFV and then FFVI, right? Well after the success of FFIV, we heard nothing from Square-Enix about giving the last 2 SNES classics the same treatment.

Now that the DS's life has come to an end, we know they won't be released for that system. However, now that we have a more powerful handheld, I think we might actually get FFV and VI. I wasn't a big fan of V but it had some solid gameplay and an awesome soundtrack. What I'm waiting for is the remake to the greatest Final Fantasy of all time... VI. For all of us that grew up with the SNES you know what I'm talking about.

Even to this day it's still regarded as one of the best in the series. So my question is, do you think Square-Enix will deliver? I was disappointed that they never got to it in the DS days however I'm actually glad they didn't now that I think about it. Why you ask? Because I don't think the DS could handle it. Sure FFIII and FFIV came out pretty good but they were still somewhat limited. And we all know how big of a game FFVI was (it had 12 main characters and 2 hidden ones). After seeing what the 3DS is capable of I'm thinking that FFVI on this system was just meant to be. We all know that Square-Enix loves to develop for Nintendo's handhelds (even moreso than their consoles) so I actually think it's a possibility. What do you guys think?

Also if you haven't heard of this game, check out the FMV intro...

Just imagine how awesome this would look on the 3DS...

Final Fantasy VI should not be done on the 3DS. It deserves the same budget as Final Fantasy XIII to do properly. Which it wouldn't do unless it was on PS3 and/or XBOX 360.

FFV is a basic game (but still great) so I wouldn't mind it coming to 3DS.

I actually would love if they made it for PS3. But it seems like Square-Enix is set on doing FF remakes on Nintendo's portables. I think the 3DS is capable of PS3 graphics though. I heard Resident Evil 3DS was basically using the same engine as its console counterparts. Plus the one thing the 3DS has over those other systems is glasses free 3D. Seeing FFVI in 3D would be amazing...

Now how in the world could you do 6 on one of the HD systems?!. Unless you redo the graphics completely from the ground up. Millions are waiting for 7 to get redone on the HD systems before 6 would even be a thought.

As for the 3ds version of the game I would buy it in a heartbeat. I had the first two you mentioned and loved 4 since it's one of my all time favorites in the series. 3ds could only do it justice. However I read somewhere that square heads aren't all the impressed with the 3d graphics yet. Hopefully the system sells well enough to change their minds. Of course I believe that was just one or two peoples opinions.

Edit: and one more thing. All I have to say about IV is spoony bard is one of the best qoutes in video game history!!!

A 3DS remake of FFVI will be nice, but are we not forgetting about the PSP2? :P FFVI can be remade for one of those handhelds and I would cry tears of joy. :D We also need remakes of FFV and FFVII on either the 3DS or PSP2.

Either way, it is going to be awhile because we are going to see a FFV remake before a FFVI remake.

yeah a 3D2 (double 3D?) FF VI would be awesome. Like they did with III and IV, but time VI AND in 3D2, (WHAT?!) would be defiantly awesome.

Well yeah, the graphics obviously would have to be remade completely. Have you seen FFXIII? Imagine that but with the familar locations and artistic style of FFVI.

I think something like FFIV: CC on PSP could work. On the PSP. And not the 3DS.

I don't think we have to worry about Square-Enix doubting the 3DS. They have worked wonders on inferior handhelds (GBA and DS come to mind). The 3DS is the most powerful Nintendo console/handheld to date so I'm sure Square-Enix will make some amazing things for it. The FFIV remake for the DS was epic. Even to this day it still holds up pretty well.

For some reason I don't think they'll make V and VI for the PSP2. Reason being, Square and Nintendo have a very good relationship when it comes to handhelds. GBA got FFIV, V, and VI. DS got a FFIII and IV remake while the PSP got ports (not of the remakes, but of the original versions). PSP did have Crisis Core and Dissidia though (both awesome games in their own right). But the DS had so many FF titles that I lost count! FF: Chocobo Tales (awesome game by the way, I'm playing it at the moment), FF Tactics, FF: Crystal Chronicles (another Nintendo exclusive FF series), etc. So I believe it'll be the same way this gen. Just look at this. PSP recently got this updated FFIV game...

While DS owners got this version...

DS version is clearly superior even though PSP is a more powerful system. That just goes to show that Square-Enix favored the DS. I predict the same thing will happen with the 3DS.

Square won't do this because it takes too much time and costs too much money.. This is why we still haven't seen a remake of VII, despite the fact it would sell billions. A lower budget remake/supped up port on the PSP or 3DS for either game is far more likely than a hugely expensive full remake.

For VI, I'd much rather see a version with nice HD sprites, rather than being fully remade in 3D. I don't think it really worked with IV.

@Vinstigator-How do you know for sure that the DS version of Final Fantasy IV is superior? I have played both the DS and PSP versions, and I personally think that the PSP is the best version of FFIV out there.

First of all, the DS version's 3D graphics are ridiculously ugly. I rather have the updated 2D graphics of the PSP version compared to the ugly 3D graphics of the DS version. Second, the DS version's difficulty is also BRUTAL, and it would turn off anybody who has never played FFIV before (like me at the time). I played the PSP version and the difficulty is a lot more bearable compared to the DS version and personally to me more fun. Third, the PSP version also includes Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, and the DS version does not include that at all.

It's true that Square Enix and Nintendo now have a good relationship with each other, but you need to remember that was always not the case. Nintendo and Square Enix had a huge falling out with each other during the 32 bit era because SE decided to develop their FF games for the PS1. Nintendo did not like that, and their relationship shattered until the next generation of consoles.

But my point is that Square Enix has just as good of a relationship with Sony if not better compared to Nintendo's. Just because things are one way in this generation does not mean Square Enix will do the same thing in the next generation.

Also, the quality of Square Enix games for the PSP seems to be of a much higher quality compared to Square Enix's DS games, but maybe that is just me.

@Highwinter-Final Fantasy III got remade for the DS, and that was a heck of a lot more basic game compared to FFV. Either way, I know FFV will be get a remake before FFVI, it just a matter of when and how.

That would be awesome. They could do a lot with this. Terra and Celes in the early days of the empire wreaking havoc, Kefka and General Leo as new recruits rising up the ranks. Sabin and Edgar before Edgar took power. Young Umaro as he snacked on Narshians lol. Shadow before he became who he is etc. etc.

If they did it for FFVII, then they should definitely do it for FFVI.

No idea Tasuki. It would just be real easy with FFVI because most of the characters already had a ton of back story in the game.
