They've renamed the existing release of 3 & 4 to say 3D Remake... but also used lowercase lettering so it doesn't match up with the rest of the series.

They've changed the name of 5 & 6 on the Store page only to say Old version.

 

Final Fantasy V on the Steam store also now has this note:

As does Final Fantasy VI:

So if you want the existing versions of the game, better jump on them while you can, you've got less than a month.

FF1 & FF2 are $12 each, FF3-FF6 are $18 each. Seems very steep in my opinion.

 

Also the choice of font is horrendous once again. It's way too compact and tiny and just doesn't go well with any of the games. Square-Enix and fumbled these games again.

Another comparison. Suggests Square-Enix got lazy and really only updated the sprites for the main characters while re-used most enemy sprites as they were. Backgrounds were of course updated mostly to support 16:9.

Meh, doesn't really seem worth getting if I've played them in a previous format. These remasters hardly look any better than previous versions. Maybe if the new sprites were MORE detailed than the original snes sprites, but they don't look it. Just a higher resolution is not a draw for me.

Final Fantasy V Update 2

  The main content of the update is as follows.
 

Battle Adjustments
  • The ability ""Cover"" has been altered so it now activates when in critical condition.
  • In battles that cannot be escaped from, the ability ""Hide"" has been changed so it continues, even when all characters other than the hidden character are wiped out.
  • The ability ""Barehanded"" has been adjusted to reduce correctly when certain command abilities are used, such as ""Rapid Fire"" and ""Jump"".
  • The HP reduction effect of ""Thornlet"" now continues throughout battle.
  • A fix has been implemented meaning that when a character wearing an accessory that grants additional effects is KO, Petrify or turned into a zombie, and those effects are ended, the effects will now automatically return after their status is restored to normal.
  • The status ailment resistance of some monsters has been decreased.
  • The behavior of certain monsters using non-standard counters when hit by special kinds of attacks, such as multi-hit attacks, has now been fixed.
  • For some enemies, the conditions for a special counter occurring, for example, when defeated) have been adjusted, and if there is event, it will trigger correctly without skipping.
  • There is an issue where counter actions and events may no longer occur if three or more consecutive attacks are performed. We plan to fix this issue in future.
Map/Event Adjustments
  • Movement speed has been decreased for the ability ""Dash"".
  • Black Chocobo movement patterns have been adjusted, making capture easier.
 
Bug Fixes
The following bugs have been fixed.
We apologize profoundly for the inconvenience caused.
 
Battle
  • There were some cases where using the abilities ""Control"", ""Catch"" and ""Release"" in succession would cause the processing to slow down.
  • There continue to be some cases where the behavior of ""Release"" is affected when the selected monster disappears before ""Catch"" is carried out, and a different monster is caught. Additionally, if a character leaves the party while monsters are caught, then they will have lost those monsters when they rejoin the party. We plan to fix these two issues in future.
  • The turn order may have performed unusually when using the time magic spell ""Quick"" with the ability ""Dualcast"".
  • The game may have performed unusually when the ability ""Mimic"" is used under certain conditions.
  • Using the ability ""Lance"" on an enemy whose movements have been stopped would prevent the game from progressing further.
  • There were some cases where parameter changes for abilities and equipment may not have been properly reflected.
  • There were some cases where the ATB gauge was not correctly maintained when performing a counter action.
  • The enemy skill ""Danse Macarbe"" also targeted party members who had temporarily left the battlefield.
  • When using a “Gold Needle” against certain monsters like ""Stone Golems"", the game may have performed unusually, preventing the game from progressing further.
  • There were some cases where the effect of the ""Gold Hairpin"" that reduces MP consumed by half did not function correctly.
  • There were some cases where additional effects on equipped weapons did not occur correctly when afflicted with the ""Zombie"" status ailment, causing the game to perform unusually.
  • The motion when using the ability ""Time Magic"" ""Iainuki"" was incorrect."
Map/Events
  • There were some cases where the battle with the boss monster, ""Necrophobe"", would not trigger under certain conditions. We have adjusted it so that this battle will trigger again if you load a save from before you entered the final floor, or if you load a completed game save created after this update has been released. If the bug has already occurred for you, then we apologize for the trouble, but ask you to use the above methods to resolve the issue.
  • There were some cases where the landmass settings on the world map and the movement speeds for vehicles were not correct.
  • The changes to landmass on the world map were not correct at a certain time.
  • There was a place on the sea at the beginning of the game where unintended battle encounters would occur.
  • There were some cases where you became unable to return to the vehicle that you were previously riding after certain events had occurred.
  • After exiting certain dungeons, the teleport destination may have performed unusually when using ""Teleport"" from another location.
  • In certain maps including the ""Tower of Walse"", moving whilst afflicted with the ""Toad"" or ""Mini"" status may have prevented the game from progressing further.
  • There were some cases where certain conditions during dungeons or battles with a time limit would prevent the game from progressing further.
  • There were some cases were certain control inputs would cause events to occur repeatedly.
  • Reloading a quick save from certain points caused some battles that should have occurred to not trigger.
  • Reloading a quick save from certain points prevented the game from progressing further.
  • If you recovered to full HP (for example, by using a ""Cottage"") whilst afflicted with the ""Zombie"" status ailment, then you would become unable to cure it with ""Holy Water"".
  • In the sound player, some songs had errors in their play time.


We plan to continue performing updates in future, in addition to the content adjusted in this patch.
Thank you for your ongoing support of FINAL FANTASY V and the Pixel Remaster series.
