Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster adds exp boost, random encounter toggle, and more on PS4



In case you missed the announcement overnight, the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster games are launching on PS4 later this month. We’ve been waiting for confirmation of that April 19 release date for a while, but that’s not the only headline-worthy news regarding the collection.

In fact, Square Enix has also revealed that all six remasters will include brand new gameplay modifiers. A simple ‘boost’ menu lets you turn random encounters on or off at any time, and you can increase the amount of experience points, money and ability points you earn from fighting. You can multiply these values ​​up to four times, which largely eliminates the need to grind for levels or resources. Or at least, it makes the process very much smooth

Oh, and if you’re looking for a challenge, you can use these settings to reduce or completely disable things like exp and gil. Then, it’s a fully customizable experience.

Speaking of customization, Square Enix has added the ability to switch between remastered, remastered music, and original tracks for each game. You can also toggle between the new (rather divisive) font and the classic style. They have thought of everything!

We don’t know yet if these modifiers will affect trophies, but we are assuming That they won’t. After all, the boost in previous Final Fantasy re-releases didn’t affect digital trinkets, so we don’t see why it would be any different with these remasters.
