Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster I-VI Rated for PS4 & Switch

Reddit user cefaluu recently spotted that the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series of all six games have been rated by the ESRB for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

So far, these games have been exclusive to mobile devices and PC via Steam, and seeing them make their way to consoles has been long requested. We’ll be sure to keep you updated regarding the additional releases of this title.

The ESRB rating descriptions for all games are quoted and linked below:

Final Fantasy I

This is a role-playing game in which players embark on a journey to find magic crystals. Players move small characters around 2D maps while exploring and engaging in battles with enemies. Combat is turn-based, with players selecting attacks/spells from a menu to use against characters (e.g., small monsters, zombies, pirates).

Enemies blink and dissolve when defeated. Some female creatures have bodies or wear outfits that reveal moderate amounts of cleavage (e.g., bikini-style tops).

Final Fantasy II

This is a 2D role-playing game in which players help rebels on an adventure to save the world. As players traverse a fantasy kingdom, they can interact with characters and engage in turn-based combat against fantastical creatures (e.g., golems, zombies, goblins). Players use a menu screen to select weapon attacks/spells; enemies generally dissolve or fade away when defeated.

An item that players can use during combat to enhance abilities is called “Bacchus’s Wine.” One snake-like female creature is depicted with a partially exposed breast—though with no discernible detail. The words “hell” and “damn” appear in the game.

Final Fantasy III

This is a 2D role-playing game in which players control characters trying to save the world from destruction. Players engage in turn-based battles (e.g., selecting attacks/spells/skill from a menu) against various fantastical enemies (e.g., goblins, demons, dragons). Cutscenes include descriptions of violence in text/dialogue (e.g., “attacked with a knife”; “turned the knife on himself”).

Some enemies are depicted with bloodstained swords. A female creature (depicted in gameplay and an art gallery) appears to be topless—though there are no discernible details. A drunk character appears in a tavern (e.g., “Nothin’ left to do but drink away my worries…*hic*”).

Final Fantasy IV

This is a 2D role-playing game in which players lead adventurers on a mission to stop an ancient evil. Players explore a fantasy world, interact with characters, and engage in turn-based combat against enemy soldiers and creatures (e.g., plant monsters, robots, zombies). Players select weapon attacks and magic spells from a menu screen to perform attacks.

Players can also access an art gallery that includes drawings of characters, one of which is a depiction of a bleeding door. One line drawing depicts a small female creature that appears to be topless—though there are no discernible details. A handful of characters and creatures wear revealing outfits (e.g., deep cleavage). During one sequence, players can encounter a drunk character in a pub that states, “Booger off! *hiccup* I ain’s afraid of you.” The word “bastard” appears in the game.

Final Fantasy V

This is a 2D role-playing game in which players lead adventurers on a quest to stop an evil force. As players explore a fantasy world, they interact with characters and in engage in turn-based combat against fantastical enemies (e.g., wizards, dragons, zombies).

Final Fantasy VI

This is a role-playing game in which players embark on a journey to stop a villain from destroying the world. Players engage in turn-based battles (e.g., selecting attacks/spells from a menu screen) against various enemies (e.g., bears, mech-robots, knights) that disappear when defeated.

Cutscenes also contain instances of violence: a jailed character getting punched; a character getting stabbed. A handful of characters are dressed in outfits that expose deep cleavage; gallery images depict line drawings of partially nude characters.
