Are the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters a big deal?

There are so many upcoming games that the world is looking forward to seeing in 2023 with Final Fantasy XVI being one of them. As we know the Final Fantasy XVI is going to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive but we have recently learned that Square Enix will be releasing remastered versions of the first six Final Fantasy titles from ’87-’94 collectively in one game for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. Based on what we know the 35th Anniversary Edition of the Remastered Pixel Edition of the first six Final Fantasy games will include items such as a goods box, artbook, 2-disc vinyl record with arranged music courtesy of Kazuko Shibuya and a lenticular sleeve for the game package. Its was also revealed that “extremely limited” quantities of physical standard editions will be available on the day of its release. The physical standard editions of the game will be available exclusively on the Square Enix Store online. While many people are excited about the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters there are numerous upcoming releases that could end up overshadowing the nostalgia of Square Enix’s beloved 2D JRPG’s. We have games like Street Fighter 6, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Suicide Square: Kill the Justice League, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and more that are set to appear throughout 2023. While the 35th anniversary of Final Fantasy is a big deal its likely to be overshadowed by the FFXVI game that is set to be released in June 2023. Making the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch makes sense because more gamers have access those consoles versus the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X. If the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters break one million in sales that would be impressive considering the fact that all six games are more than 25 years old.
