In a recent tweet via the official Final Fantasy Twitter account, Square Enix has announced that the iconic train suplex performed by Sabin in Final Fantasy VI will be further polished in time for the Pixel Remaster’s release. This statement was made in response to fans’ collective displeasure with how it has been preemptively depicted. As stated in the tweet, “…we saw some of your comments that the Phantom Train didn’t flip during Meteor Strike. The video was taken from a pre-release version, and will be adjusted in time for launch!
With the release only a week away, let’s hope the animations are enhanced to a more desirable level. You can view the initial tweet updating fans on this occurrence below:
