Announced during E3 last month, Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster is a collection of the first six games in the Final Fantasy series, remastered with beautiful 2D pixel art. It’s meant to give players a chance to re-experience the classic games on modern platforms and redone visuals, but there’s just one glaring problem: the font is really ugly.
The mobile version of FFVI is notorious for its ugly pixel art and ugly mobile phone font, but the one used in Pixel Remaster looks even worse than that, if that were possible. As you can see from the screenshots down below, the font looks way too tiny and smushed together, making it hard to read what’s onscreen.
And fans on Twitter definitely don’t like it either, as many of them have taken to the social media platform to comment on just how ugly and unreadable it is based on the screenshots themselves. It’s possible that Square Enix could still opt to change the font before release, but that remains to be seen.
That said, the remasters will have some new features like a redone UI, auto-battle options, and a remastered soundtrack, which should be pretty sweet.
The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster store page is now up on Steam, and will be available on July 28.
