■ Alterations relating to battles
*A visual effect was added where the screen flashes if an allied character’s attack scores a critical hit.
*The time taken when transitioning between screens after escaping from battle has been reduced.
*The command “Row” is now no longer selected when using auto-battle.
■ Alterations relating to maps and events
*It has been changed so that information about locations it is no longer possible to travel to due to story progression can now be checked on the world map when using “Sight” or “Gnomish Bread”.
*Alterations have been made so that weapons and armour are sorted into attack (or defence) power order within their type category when using the auto-sort function on the menu screen.
*The waterfall graphics on the world map have been altered to make them look more natural.
■ Bug fixes
The following bugs have been fixed.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that these issues may have caused.
＜Battle related issues＞
*There were situations where progress became impossible under certain conditions when using actions such as ""Raise” or similar that have revive type effects to instantly kill enemies that split or multiply.
*Sometimes the notice “Couldn't steal...” would be shown when trying to steal a second time from an enemy that had already been stolen from once. This has been fixed so the notice will now always show “Nothing to steal!” instead.
*The effect of a Knight’s “Guard” ability would also trigger for “Petrified” allies when close to death.
＜Map and event related/ other issues＞
*After a Scholar had used “Alchemy” in battle, sometimes the same effect would also trigger when using items from the menu screen.
*Some armour did not sort into the correct defensive power order on the equipment menu screen,
*Sometimes it was possible to perform specific inputs when disembarking from a boat, that resulted in the characters disembarking into the sea and preventing further progress.
*Sometimes some event scenes would not display properly under specific circumstances.
*Some text was not displayed in a suitable manner.
*Some graphics were not displayed in a suitable manner.
*Some BGM and SFX were not played correctly.
*Sometimes it would become impossible to proceed after transitioning to the Monster Bestiary map screen under specific conditions.
Fixes to other minor bugs.
Further updates are planned in future.
Ratings and Reviews
Love, love, love it!
Final Fantasy III is a title that I’ve always wanted to play, but I’ve never really got on with the 3D remake. It felt too slow for me and an absolute grind fest.
The Pixel Remaster has certainly lived up to my hopes. Whilst there is still a degree of grinding required, such is the case with most Final Fantasy games at one point or another, it doesn’t feel like a chore.
The sprites are charming and the remastered soundtrack makes it feel as though you’re playing a newer title. It doesn’t feel as antiquated, which is a good thing in my opinion.
I would strongly recommend playing the Pixel Remaster version as opposed to the 3D remake.
Perfect RGP to for the phone!
I’ve completed 29/30 achievements and the final one doesn’t trigger. Which is stupid since it requires you to have earned the other 29…. all done on one save file, the achievements are just bugged.
