Final Fantasy VI Locked For Virtual Console Re-Release


celesSquare Enix has been re-releasing their collection of Final Fantasy games as Virtual Console downloads in Japan. The only game in the series from a classic Nintendo console that isn’t available for Wii is Final Fantasy VI. That’s going to change next month since the Super Nintendo RPG with a taunting octopus popped out of the ocean and onto Nintendo’s March Virtual Console calendar.


Last Resort, the arcade version of Puyo Puyo, and Ufouria are slated for release too. Yes, we got Ufouria before Japan did. Jaleco kicks March off with Fire Fighting, a Super Famicom fire fighting game better known as The Ignition Factor in the West. It costs 800 Wii Points ($8). Final Fantasy VI is considered a premium title and costs 900 Wii Points ($9) in the region.


A handful of Square Enix games are available for Virtual Console in North America. Final Fantasy, the original NES game, is among them
