Final Fantasy VI - T-Edition + EX (English Translation)

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

FF6 T-Edition is a popular Japanese ROM hack of Final Fantasy VI for the Super Famicom. It’s intended for Final Fantasy VI fans who would like to play the game with new twists.

Think of Final Fantasy VI T-Edition as a fun, lengthy, and more difficult version of Final Fantasy VI from an alternate universe.

In simple terms, this ROM hack:

  • Retains the original story, but adds a LOT of new content *around* the main story, including side quests, locations, dungeons, super-bosses, unlockable character costumes (each with stat changes), a music player, and more
  • Celebrates the Final Fantasy series in countless ways, including hundreds of pieces of music from other games in the series
  • Updates the game’s mechanics with bug fixes, difficulty modifications, new spells, new attacks, new items, and a whole lot more

This patch should be applied on a UNMODIFIED ROM of FF6j, not on FF3us.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Database match: Final Fantasy VI (Japan)
  • Database: No-Intro: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (v. 20210222-050638)
  • File/ROM SHA-1: 1C6A6DD90D3463F4532202199885A2C0E9A485F6

Polished hack that adds a lot of endgame content

Reviewed By: Ticron on 06 Dec 2021

A big thanks to Tomato for translating this!

This is one of the most complete and polished hacks I’ve played, and isn’t too far away from feeling like an official SE release. While it does add some QOL changes that other hacks have done before (like always on Sprint Shoes), about 90% of the content comes at the end of the game. A lot of it is beating powerful bosses in order to get items to beat more powerful bosses. It’s not incredibly unfair - but it is a big step up in challenge compared to the original game. I grinded up to level 90, and some bosses will still destroy you with bad luck or the wrong strategy - and some of those strategies are incredibly inventive, and make you feel like a genius after figuring them out. But even completing the base game will put you through the paces. Kefka’s tower isn’t much harder than the base game, until you get to his final phase where he is stronger than “super bosses” like Shinryu and Omega Weapon.

Speaking of, this hack borrows a lot from other games in the series. It fits in mostly seamlessly, but there is a stylistic difference between the original FF6’s “dark” style and the more “bright” imported sprites. It’s a minor gripe that doesn’t distract from the monumental amount of work that was put into this. The bosses from FF1 to more modern releases are also here, in a secret area that unlocks additional artwork as you defeat them.

In the end, that’s what a lot of this hack adds - endgame side quests that often culminate with really, really difficult bosses that net you powerful gear. That isn’t to say there isn’t more it adds on the way (for example, Esper level-up bonuses being cut really changes character progression), but that’s most of the content. It took me a little under 100 hours to finish, much of which was grinding with fast-forward.

In short, it’s recommended if you love FF6, want to see the base game “remixed”, want more content, and don’t mind a challenge. While newcomers to FF6 (but not RPGs in general) could probably finish it, this is a hard game that would probably be more suited to veterans.
