Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Bundle Rated For PS4 And Nintendo Switch

Square Enix's remasters were rated by the ESRB, suggesting a possible launch on consoles.

The Final Fantasy series has aged beautifully since its inception, altering its formula with the changing times while retaining the essence that made it stand out. The initial titles are still reminisced by fans, and Square Enix brought them back in the form of remasters. The bundle launched to critical acclaim on the Steam Storefront last year. 

The fans of the alluring turn-based roleplay titles have missed out on the Pixel Remaster bundle on consoles so far. However, the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster bundle has recently been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch consoles.


Major Rundown

  • The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster bundle has been rated by Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch consoles. The bundle includes remasters of 1-6 Final Fantasy titles.
  • The rating hints toward the imminent launch of the bundle on the aforesaid platforms. The next-gen consoles, like the PlayStation 5, remain a mystery, as there were no mentions of them.
  • Square Enix has not made any official announcements, but we expect that will change in the coming weeks. We could see an official reveal on December 18th, which is the series’ 35th anniversary.
  • The Pixel Remaster bundle was also initially rated for the PC before it arrived on the platform, which further strengthens the whirring rumor.

Initially spotted by the Reddit user, cefaluu, the rating hints at a possible launch on the old-gen console and the Nintendo Switch. The Switch harbor a huge chunk of the Final Fantasy fanbase, so the fans have commemorated the news on the forums. There were no ratings for the next-gen platforms, but that could change in the future.

Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters (1-6) have all been newly rated by ESRB for the aforesaid platforms. The Teen Rating is due to the entries featuring some partial nudity and fantasy violence. The rating for Final Fantasy VI (Pixel Remaster) by the ESRB can be viewed below.

The games were previously only released on PC and Mobile, and now, console players will also have a chance to play the rejuvenated version of the nostalgic turn-based battlers. 

The rumors of the Pixel Remaster bundle’s arrival on consoles have spanned across the Final Fantasy community; it was kind of expected, considering a slew of fan requests wanting to enjoy the HD pixelated experience on consoles.

We can hope for an official reveal to arrive on December 18th since that entails the 35th anniversary of the Final Fantasy franchise.

Despite the high prospects of the bundle launching on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, we suggest taking the ratings with a slight grain of salt, as Square Enix has not officially confirmed anything thus far.

If you are unfamiliar, the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster bundle breathes a new spirit into the wistful games. The remasters feature a new take on pixelized visuals and updated audio to take you on an adventure unlike anything before. The Steam storefront defines the bundle as follows:

The original FINAL FANTASY comes to life with completely new graphics and audio! A remodeled 2D take on the first game in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series! Enjoy the timeless story told through charming retro graphics.

The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster is a fulfilling experience on PC, letting players revisit the old memories surrounding the classical masterpieces. Its impending appearance on consoles is a much-needed ode to the original entries.
