Variants

The music CD is only available in the black label release, featured above.

Final Fantasy Anthology was released under the original Squaresoft name for it’s Day 1 release, but switched to the merged Square-Enix logo with the Greatest Hits. The initial Greatest Hits release is standard fare, minus the music CD.

The 2nd and 3rd re-prints would come from Square-Enix’s online shop. These are unique in that they are silver bottom CDs – something that goes against Sony’s original black / blue dye methods. The color of the Greatest Hits banners changed between reprints, otherwise they’re the same.

Trivia

  • You’re thinking, “I don’t recall this being 2 players…” and you’d be right. It’s a weird option in the menu screen where you can assign different team members to their respective controllers. So in a fight, Player 1 could control several characters, and Player 2 could control the rest. It’s silly, but it’s there.
  • In Europe, the included games were Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy V. Final Fantasy VI would be released separately with a playable demo of then upcoming Final Fantasy X (as a PS2 demo disc, of course).
  • The loading times in this collection are pretty staggering when compared to the original Super Nintendo cart versions. An older side-by-side comparison using the infamous raft EXP exploit over a period of 24 hours showed the PlayStation version of FFVI was behind in progress by double-digit levels.
  • Final Fantasy VI was originally released in America as Final Fantasy III on the Super NES.
  • Taking in only the Final Fantasy games available on the system, the PlayStation is only missing the true FFIII among the first 9 numbered games.
  • The games may have glitched menu systems when played on certain models of the PlayStation 2 and 3.
