    Agreed. It would have been a bigger deal if these were getting remade for their 30th anniversary.

    Oh, there's much worse out there – Wizardry IV, for instance. But that's probably cheating; the authors there purposely set out to make something stupidly inscrutable. Drakkhen, maybe.

    I remember the ridiculous way Tim Rogers once put it. ("Ridiculous" being his default mode.)

    It seemed to me at the time there were reams of articles being put out about how the graphics where sloppily upscaled and filtered. People seemed particularly upset about how background tiles no longer seamlessly connect to one another. See for instance https://www.fortressofdoors.com/doing-an-hd-remake-the-right-way-ffvi-edition/ .

    FF5 had an additional dungeon (from GBA) and 4 classes you can't really use since you get it too late. They probably should have made those 4 classes a new game+ feature.
    FF6 had an additional dungeon (from GBA) iirc and more censorship (at least in Japan).

    What a cash grab. They should have made it DX or colored.

    The graphics, which are all sprites, have all been redrawn. They aren't simple upscales.

    Cool. I had no idea there was major new content like dungeons added. I'll have to look into where they are in the game to make sure I don't miss them on my playthrough. I recently purchased both FFV and FFVI for Android and are already some hours into each.

    I might get this as I'm sucker for nostalgia. I don't know if I've played any of these games, but what I mean is retro. I noticed that they have romancing saga 3 on the eshop as well. it's the odd price of $28.99. it looks a bit like Final Fantasy VI graphically.

    Why would anyone buy/play this over the full fledged breathtaking remakes these games got on Nintendo DS.
    Hell, why aren't THOSE in this collection.

    Every collection game on switch feels like a soulless, cheap cash grab.
    They're so out of it they made the borders look like freaking game gear

    At least there's fan translations for the DS remakes.

    I wonder how long until the current rights holder does a lufia collection and fails to include the DS remake ( which is the best game in the series by a long shot.)

    The second and third were already remade for the DS (and they are great!).

    The first one has a much less impressive remake on the Wonderswan Color.. they should have at the very least included that version.

    I want this, but I don't buy games digitally.
