Final Fantasy I-VI Pixel Remaster series installments are scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on April 19th. The Pixel Remaster Collection physical release for Switch with English-language compatibility is available for preorder through distributor Play-Asia.

The Pixel Remaster editions of the first six mainline Final Fantasy titles are presented in a sprite-based format reminiscent of the Game Boy Advance ports, while also adopting a widescreen display.

Features include sprite art overseen by Kazuko Shibuya, a fast-forward option, mini-maps of dungeons and towns, and a music player and bestiary. The console release adds a new pixel-based font, the option to turn off random encounters and gain more experience from battles.

Excerpts of all music tracks from Final Fantasy I-VI Pixel Remaster Collection, composed by Nobuo Uematsu, are streaming on digital music store Ototoy.

From the product page:
The Pixel Remaster series features utterly superb new orchestral arrangements of FINAL FANTASY I - VI’s soundtracks. However, we know some of you may want to recreate the original experience of playing these games, so you’ll be able to switch between the original and rearranged soundtracks. The console release of FINAL FANTASY I - VI gives you the option to switch between two different fonts: the default font and a new pixel-based font that recreates the feel of the original games.

Turn off random encounters: Sometimes you just want to explore in peace, so a feature in the Pixel Remaster games lets you turn off random encounters completely. This means you can roam the world without being harassed by monsters. That also means you won’t get stronger, so be careful how you use it… Speaking of getting stronger, want to speed things up a little? Boost features let you adjust the experience gained by up to four times. Perfect if you want an easier run through the games.
