Three NES games, three SNES games.

The ones not originally released in America would be translated and the title screens would show the correct numbering in the American release.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

No, but that's largely because I own most of them already.

also because we can't trust SE to do re-releases nowadays

They'd probably just prefer to sell you all the mobile remakes individually.

But without touch controls. Because that'd be extra effort.

I would buy the heck out of that collection, if only for the ability to play Final Fantasy 6 on Switch. I know that the NES games are pretty primitive, but the SNES games are by all accounts pretty wonderful, FF6 especially.

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

Maybe.

II is garbage no matter how you play it.

I and III are ok even with the PSP enhancements. Not ones I'd ever revisit.

IV is at its peak with the DS/PSP versions and I don't need another.

V and VI have their excellent GBA versions too, I don't need another.

I don't need any more versions of FFIV to FFVI, even if I love those games. And if they ever use the godawful mobile/PC ports of FFV and FFVI, I'm definitely not buying it. But if they put actual effort into those ports or just use the original sprites, then I'll consider it.

II is still extremely underrated I see.

@Meowpheel FFII's biggest problem is the sheer amount of grinding needed to "level up" stuff, which was even worse than FFI or FFIII's grinding. The idea was fine - do something more often, you get better at it. That makes sense, Rune Factory 4 did that same thing and it worked naturally because the curve was way better. It made every character that took up your fourth slot just so much effort to train up.

And the story was at least pretty decent for a pre-SNES RPG, but the grinding problem single-handedly kills the game so hard. The only way to make the game tolerable is to exploit the programming so you learned magic quickly, but they fixed that with the GBA release so now that's just completely gone and terrible.

I can say some nice things about FFII, but my experience with the game was just so terrible I strongly recommend against the game.

I don't really see the need to grind at all. (Or at least more than in other final fantasy games).

Just specialize your characters in one thing and play the game.

There's no need to maximize your characters. Specially the guests (except for maybe Minwu if you plan to play the extra game).

That depends on how much they updated the graphics and until we see something this is all rumors right now.

I probably would. It would be a smart move especially since SE never put these games on the n3DS/3DS or Wii U eShops.

Now playing: Pokemon Shield, Assassins Creed III, Turok 2, Contra Anniversary Collection

Anti-Matter

Eh... maybe No.
Reasons :
1. I have never played FF 1 & 2. Not really interesting for me.
2. I have FF 3 & 4 NDS version.
3. I have less interest with FF 5 & 6 since the Remake on Mobile were Terrible. Unless, if FF 5 & 6 at least got SAME treatment as FF 4 Remake (Proper 3D Rendering in HD, Chibi looking, Voice Actor, New FMV Scenes)

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

@Anti-Matter It's true that the mobile/PC versions of FF 5 and 6 were awful, but please don't dismiss them entirely. They are truly phenomenal games, FF6 probably being the best RPG I've ever played. Also, the original sprites for the games were pretty beautiful to begin with, and also have a slightly chibi/anime style, albeit a bit blocky. Square doesn't even need to remaster them. And seeing how their mobile and PC versions turned out, I'd prefer that Square leaves them alone and releases the originals!

The mobile ports weren't even that bad tbh

Specially VI is still really good (the art was more faithful to the original version than V).

If you ask me the ports with reused DS graphics look ten times worse.

Yes please. I still haven't managed to play IV-VI at any point, and it's not exactly like there's any way to play those with a controller right now afaik. FF1 would be fun to jump back to again anyways, and I've never finished III.

I'd buy a collection but I don't know if I'd buy the original games. I remember buying Final Fantasy on Wii's Virtual Console after playing the GBA remake and I stopped playing very early on because of the grinding you needed to do to advance. Leveling up was way too slow in the original game.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

To be honest I'm only interested in either FF9 or the newest... Kind of 0 interest in the old one so i probs won't, but it'll be good for people that want it of course

Yes !

But I don't see it happening as they didn't even bother to localise the Seiken Densetsu Collection !

SwitchForce

Until they make a NS demo that is the only way to gauge FF player interest. I'd give that a try.

V on Switch? I'd be down with that.

Oh, and I guess the rest can come too.
