Final Fantasy VI - Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

Back when Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III US) was released the game was heavily toned down, censoring graphics and the like. When it was re-released for the Playstation, the graphics were uncensored but toned down script remained. Then came Final Fantasy VI Advance with a newer (though some consider drier) translation, but the color palette and music were altered for the handheld console. Others have made re-translations, such as the great work by RPGOne, Lina Darkstar, and Kwhazit.

Now this is Final Fantasy VI: Ted Woolsey Uncensored Editon. The goal was to make the SNES version uncut and to clean up the script but keep the nuance used by Woolsey in the original game’s release. Using the original Woolsey script as a basis to analyze, the entire game was looked through, line by line, using FFVI Advance, RPGOne, and Lina Darkstar to accomplish this. Recently, the game’s script was also heavily analyzed by Kwhazit and Mato (Legends of Localization). With these newer and more heavily detailed looks into the game, the script was again updated to provide a much more accurate version while still remaining true to the original game’s release.

Also used was various tools and patches to uncensor the graphics, restore Character Class names, extend spell names, rename monsters and items, and make hopefully the version of Final Fantasy VI that everyone will play.

Any bug fixes or additions that were used were chosen not for any balance changes, but to fix persistent issues in the game, as to not change the experience of the original too much. This even includes the long list used in the optional Bug-Fix versions of the game.

Additional Add-Ons are also optionally included. These tweaks bring an overall complete experience that many would say should have been in the original game to begin with.

The Music Player included with the game has been altered for compatibility with Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition.

A new love for this game

Reviewed By: ReggieTheRetrogaminDork on 15 Jul 2019

Hello I just did a playthough of FF6 on my FB page (Reginald Entertainment Salad) using this much needed patch. I was using the version that still had the Bolt sCroll typo, but still enjoyed all that was put into this improvement of the game. I loved the subtle changes of everything in this, especially in the dialogue of the main characters. (i.e. Kefka called Celes the B-word) I also loved that the evade stat was fixed along with the darkness status. But anyway I just want to personally thank you for the work involved in making a nearly forgotten classic shine again. I enjoyed recording this version from start to finish and it kinda shows on the finale video. I was clapping at the end not for finishing the game but in honor of those who made this patch so awesome. It was an honor and privilege to not only play FF6 but to play it with the improvements on SNES version versus any of remakes and/or different ports. I like the sound and visual effect that occurs when the party has to battle in the original versus the modern remakes and seeing that this patch doesn’t try to modernize that is so much to me. Anyway thank you for the patch and the 36 video playthrough is on my page.

Best Wishes and Thank You (Again), RB2- Reginald Entertainment Salad @ Facebook
