Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster has changed the intro to the game by taking out the credits scroll, ruining one of its most iconic moments.
A change has been made to Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster that has ruined one of the most iconic moments in the game, as the opening credits crawl has been taken out, meaning developers aren’t being properly credited for their work on the title. FF6 Pixel Remaster is a remake of FF6 for PC and mobile devices, which is based on the SNES version of the game.
The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series are remakes of the original titles. The intention is to keep the gameplay and story from the original versions of the game, while improving the sprite work, updating the music tracks, and including quality-of-life features that alleviate some of the more frustrating aspects of the gameplay. The FF3 Pixel Remaster is actually the first English localization of the original game, as the previous version on the Nintendo DS was a 3D remake with numerous changes to the story and gameplay. The reception to the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series has been mixed, with many complaints leveled at the font used for all of the text being too small.
According to Shinimomi on Twitter (via IGN), FF6 Pixel Remaster has removed the credits scrolls from the opening scene of the game, with a comparison video showing all of the different versions of the FF6 intro seen on the Mog Times YouTube channel. FF6 Pixel Remaster is already missing content, as it lacks the post-game dungeons and bosses from the Game Boy Advance version of the game, though it seems that there is more missing from the game than fans originally realized.
The opening of FF6 Pixel Remaster doesn’t have the actual credits show up in the horizon so you just… walk.

FF6 begins with Biggs, Wedge, and a brainwashed Terra traveling to the city of the Narshe. The three are wearing powerful Magitek suits that they use to traverse the frozen wilderness outside of the city. In FF6, this was shown with a Mode 7 cutscene, where the three travel to Narshe with the city’s lights glistening in the distance. While this cutscene played, the game’s credits appeared in the sky. The cutscene is one of the most memorable moments in FF6 and the removal of the credits is easily one of the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster‘s worst changes to date. Now, the player just stares at the Magitek suits as they slowly walk across the snow, taking away from its cinematic feeling.
It’s unclear why this change was made, but it’s obvious that the devs have put more work into FF6 Pixel Remaster than the other entries in the series, seen with its vocal recordings for the opera scene in seven different languages, which takes a lot of work to put together. It’s possible that Square Enix could rectify the problem and add the credits in via an update, giving the developers much-needed recognition for their work on the game. Sabin’s train flipping position in FF6 Pixel Remaster was corrected following fan backlash, so the same could happen with the intro.
Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is available now for Android, iOS, and PC.
