Final Fantasy Anniversary Edition's presentation keeps a classic vibe while making a few enhancements. The game retains a 2D look and replaces the original sprites with high resolution ones. Backgrounds and characters looks just the way they did in the original, only with more detail and a clearer look. Spell effects have a haziness to them that makes them look more like magic effects rather than a simple drawing of a lighting bolt or flame. Backgrounds also feature small, noticeable touches like cloud shadows. A few bosses have even received a complete visual update and look even better than previous editions.
Music, which is always one of the series' highlights, has been cleaned up as well. The arrangements are still synthesized and remain the same, but Final Fantasy fans will not be disappointed.
