After previously being delayed into 2022, Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster will finally be released this month.
Square Enix shared the news along with a remastered rendition of Terra's Theme to celebrate. This track is still considered one of the greatest in gaming history.
This is not a wild goose chase.
Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster launches on Steam and Mobile February 23rd, PST/GMT Enjoy the majesty of Terra's Theme's reorganization.

Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster first appeared in 2021. However, it was delayed to 2021 due to additional polish. The first five games of the series are available already.
This seems to be an attempt to learn from the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters of old, which were generally well-received and required many patches to correct various bugs. This is in addition to ongoing complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Best Games of 2021
Square Enix will add additional items to Final Fantasy 6 pre-orders in order to make up for the delay. These are the new tracks (bolded track):
・Locke's theme (Timelapse Remix).
・The Decisive Battle (Timelapse remix)
・Terra's theme (Timelapse Remix).
・Searching for friends (Timelapse Remix).
・Aria di Mezzo Carattere (Instrumental)
・FF6: Two types of wallpapers
・FF1-6: Two types of wallpapers from the Pixel Remaster series
Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster is a special series of HD remasters that includes updated art, music and quality-of life improvements. You can currently access the first five entries on Android, iOS and PC. Final Fantasy 6 will be available on February 23.
