Fans do not like the small print in Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters, but that does not stop them from fixing it.
On Wednesday, Square Enix released Pixel Remasters Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 2, and Final Fantasy 3 on Android, iOS and Windows PC. The games include updates such as a renewed look and a recently remastered soundtrack. Although many of the changes brought a much-needed facelift to an old franchise, not everyone was welcome. People took the problem with the font, and now they find smart ways to fix it.
It started back in late June, when Square Enix first posted screenshots of the remasters. When they saw the screenshots, the fans immediately examined and criticized the font. Many fans were upset that it was small and complained that it would be difficult to read, and presented a possible accessibility problem that could make it difficult for some people to play. The new font also does not retain the pixelated look of the original games, and it generally looked out of place in a remaster of a retro title. A few fans even made memes to make fun of it.
Some hoped that Square Enix would respond before the July release and fix the script. But then the game came on Wednesday with the same old script, and the fans expressed their disappointment.
As it turns out, it will be relatively easy for fans to change the font ̵
Polygon contacted Square Enix for comment, but the company did not get back to us in time for publication. We will update this article as we hear from them.
