Nintendo has revealed that Final Fantasy VI Advance will release through Wii U’s Virtual Console service in Japan next week. Remembered as a landmark title in Square Enix’s long-running RPG series, it originally saw release on SNES and was later ported to Game Boy Advance.
That port, developed by Tose, will be gracing the Virtual Console service, which had improved visuals, a new translation, and implemented several bug fixes. It also introduced four new espers – Leviathan, Gilgamesh, Cactuar and Diabolos – three new spells, a bestiary and music player, and is widely regarded as a definitive version of Square’s classic RPG.
Tose also developed Final Fantasy IV Advance and Final Fantasy V Advance, which were similar ports for the handheld. But, at this point it is unclear as to whether there are plans for these to follow on.
