Topic: Would you buy a Final Fantasy I - VI collection?

Already have I, II, IV and VI on mobile, so not sure I'd buy a collection on Switch - though I am definitely interested in playing FFV. Also, playing the NES version of FFI intrigues me. The first game, as tarted up and softened for the PSP and ported to mobile, still stands up as a good time - but I'd love to sample the original, brutal NES version.

The real question is: DQI-VI or FFI-VI? But let's not revisit that old chestnut.

I am desperate for retro support on Switch that isn't 80s arcade ports, so yes, almost certainly I would buy this.

I would be down to this if they used the GBA versions and update them. All they would need to do is have better quality music, a higher screen resolution, have proper tile and sprite colors so they're not as overly bright, and fix some of the minor bugs. Since the 3rd one was never released on the GBA (for unknown reasons), just remake the game in the same style as the others.

Another exceptional thing they could do with the bundle is remake 1-6 in the Octopath Traveler engine.

But knowing Square Enix, they'll most likely just port the terrible mobile versions and leave at that.

It'd be a weird collection given that the best versions of each game are from such different sources. So you'd have no visual consistency if you wanted it to be a good collection.

It'd have to be

FF1: PSP
FF2: PSP
FF3: DS
FF4: DS or PSP
FF5: SNES or GBA
FF6: PS1

What a mess.

The only one of those games without a "mobile" 2D style available (which started with the PSP remakes) is III.

You have I, II, IV, V and VI with relatively uniform styles already. Just stick III there as is, or do a quick 2D remake.

@Dezzy I actually suspect, if this were to happen, Square Enix would go down the Seiken Densetsu Collection path, and emulate the originals, so it would be NES and SNES only. I'd prefer that, TBH - the polygon revamps are not to my taste. That said, the PSP/mobile versions of FF1 and FF2 represent a significant polish.

The only issue with just emulating the originals, is that you miss out on features and/ or bonus content. I'd rather they base their versions off of the GBA versions of the games, and just create a new unified look for the collection (kinda like the FF IV Collection).

3 can still be the “black sheep” visually, unless they're OK with creating a 2D version (maybe they have that canceled Wonderswan version floating around somewhere to use as a base?)

I still can't believe they decided to remake IV's sequel and made it look exactly like the DS game... Long long after the DS game came out... On systems capable of way better graphics.

A 1-6 or 1-10 would be neat. I think it would be better on 3ds than Switch though.

I have FFI through FFIX on my PSP.

I wouldn't be very interested in Switch ports of those games.

Unless they were remastered from the ground up on Switch hardware, then maybe.

I would buy all the SNES FFs. I'd like to see X on the Switch though and the KH series since they're porting FF games.

GBA and mobile (if you don't mind the character sprites) are the best versions of 6.

Quick, responsive, extra content, less glitches.

to be honest the mobile style is pretty much just a continuation of the PSP remake style.

3 is the only one missing out.

The characters are taller, smoother, and kinda generic looking. Specially in V.

@Dezzy 6 PS1? The 6 GBA was the best by far

I never played it. Thought it was just the same as the SNES version?

I put the PS1 version ahead because it had a few cgi cutscenes. I really appreciated those because you can give so much life to things with 3D than you can with 2D.

@Bass_X0 As a collection on Switch? In a bloody heartbeat! Preferably on a physical cartridge.

@Dezzy It's got some improved graphics, a few extra quests and spers, a new big postgame dungeon and a better translation. Not to mention less glitches.

Compared to the PS1 version, it's considerably faster with basically no loading times.

All the new content is also in the mobile port, since it's based on that version.

@Yosheel

Can you point out an example of the improved graphics?

I didn't know about more quests though. I'll emulate it on my Vita or something.

Hm I was under the impression that the character portraits were added to the gba. But no they're there in the snes.

I think Nintendo stands to make a killing from fans who want to continue to play the classic JRPG. The GBA titles were fantastic and I agree to using those versions because they are smoother and updated, but they also maintain the pixel graphics that made the games charming and artistic. I really hope Nintendo hears fans and brings FF I-VI and Chrono Trigger forward to the Switch. It would be amazing to have them all portable in one place.
