Final Fantasy VI is a console role-playing game developed and
published by Square (now Square Enix) in 1994. The game initially
appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and has since been
ported by TOSE with minor differences to the Sony PlayStation and the
Nintendo Game Boy Advance. It was first released in North America as
Final Fantasy III, although the original title has been restored in
later releases. The game's story focuses on a group of rebels as they
seek to overthrow an imperial dictatorship. Final Fantasy VI was the
first game in the series to be directed by someone other than producer
and series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi; the role was filled instead by
Yoshinori Kitase and Hiroyuki Itō. Originally released to significant
critical acclaim, it is still regarded as a landmark of the series and
of the role-playing genre. It had a significantly greater number of
battle customization options than its predecessors and the largest
playable cast in the Final Fantasy series to date, excluding spin-off
titles. It remains widely praised for its storyline, characters and
non-linear style of play.
