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.

The BEST version to play!

Reviewed By: phantom_with_a_rose on 16 Dec 2018

“Final Fantasy VI” (re-named III during its original North American release back in ‘94) remains as one of my favorite FF titles of all time and this retranslation makes it even better than ever! While the original SNES Ted Woolsey translation was good for its time, it still had plenty of spelling/grammar errors that needed to be fixed. This particular retranslation does EXACTLY that by improving much of the dialogue spoken by the characters, while still keeping the charm of Woolsey’s translation.

In addition, the ‘dash’ button (only available in the official PSX and GBA re-releases of the game) has been inserted into this version, which means that you will not need to equip the Sprint Shoes every time you just want to get through a dungeon or town as quickly as possible (this should especially be beneficial for those who are new to RPGs). Sadly, you cannot double-dash once you have bought and equipped the Sprint Shoes (whereas in the PSX and GBA renditions, you could), but this hardly detracts from the overall convenience of having the sprinting feature included from the very beginning (yes, you can also run while in the Magitek Armor at the start of the game).

As a bonus, the lyrics in the Opera House performance scene have also been updated to their original GBA counterparts, the censored graphics of certain sprites (e.g. Esper Summons) have been FULLY RESTORED, and the overall storyline, itself, has also been expanded upon a little further, ultimately making this THE “Perfect” version of FF6! Please, PLEASE, do yourself a favor and play this version NOW!!
