Mysterious Square Enix Teaser Appears
Some mornings I wake up and take a look at the stories we’re going to try to tackle for day and see something that makes me scratch my head. This morning was one of those mornings. The link was to this Japanese Square Enix Site, and what seems like a reveal planned for Thursday, January 17.
The URL provides some hints, as the end of it says “ff_atb.” For longtime fans of the series, “ATB” can only mean “Active Time Battle,” the combat system introduced in Final Fantasy IV, which broke the tradition of simple, turn-based combat. The silhouettes on the teaser page also seem to have an 8- or 16-bit pixel-art feel to them, suggesting that we’ll be hearing about some kind of classic Final Fantasy remake. After poking around for a few minutes, I see that Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy V have already been redone, while a 3DS version of Final Fantasy VI has been discussed, but not formally announced…
My money’s on a Final Fantasy VI remake. But, also, I’m really tired, and I haven’t had any coffee yet. I’m using this as an excuse for some kind of obvious clue or previous news that I’ve missed that would help me solve this mysterious mystery.
What do you think?
