Filly Fantasy VI is a romhack of Final Fantasy VI. It began as a remake of Pony Fantasy VI, inspired due to my discontent with its story and casting, but at this point it really is its own project and is better thought of as an alternative to PF6 than a remake. It is currently in development by myself and RydelFox with an intended final release for later this year, and in the meantime a public beta is available.

 

Filly Fantasy VI features a new cast, including Princess Cadance, Flash Sentry, and Maud as new playable characters. Shining Armor, Radiant Hope, Octavia, Fancy Pants, Kibitz, Zecora, Sunset Shimmer, Prince Blueblood, and a few spoileriffic familiar faces make up the supporting cast. They'll be facing off against Discord, King Sombra, Queen Chrysalis, Tirek, the Tantabus, the Diamond Dogs, the Shadowbolts, Gilda, the Ursa Minor, the Mane-iac, and a few more spoileriffic faces from the distant past that have returned to cause chaos.

 

The best way to describe the story is "an AU fic spawning off of Season 3 with a bit of alternate history." King Sombra has returned. He's seized control of the Crystal Empire, freed Discord from his petrification in exchange for servitude, and is on the warpath to conquer Equestria. Standing in his way are the Two Sisters, their rebel army the Mane Force, and a young unicorn named Twilight Sparkle who has a mysterious connection to the beings called "Espers," legendary magical ponies rumored to be the Crystal Ponies that vanished from Equestria after Sombra's defeat long ago. What does Twilight have to do with Espers, what does King Sombra know of them, and what is Discord plotting in the shadows? The answers will decide the fate of Equestria in a war that pits Canterlot and the Mane Force against the Crystal Empire and Sombra's army of magitek ponies.

 

More information about the hack, including download links for the current beta version, can be found at our Fimfiction group. Trailers and gameplay exhibition videos can be viewed on my YouTube channel. Finally, DM-PON3000 has done a full Let's Play of the current beta that can be seen here.

 

EqD has previously posted the beta releases, so stay tuned for the final release later this year. :awesomedash:

At the artist for this hack, to celebrate the release of the new Equestria Daily forum,  I thought I'd show off some of the new enemy graphics that should be appearing in the next release.

These aren't released yet, so the design is subject to change if needed.

Super cool. Seeing this hack a years and years back got me thinking about making a pony RPG. Exciting to see it finally finished!

This isn't exactly the same one from years and years back - It's a new hack of the same game by a separate team.

 

Drakey started at a good time though; the site for the older hack seems to have gone down, with the only copy still around being a slightly buggy attempt of me trying to replace graphics for some of the enemies that were still human.

 

The original Pony Fantasy VI inspired me as well - I created EquestriaBound as a direct result of playing it.

Man, I remember playing the original PFVI a while back and loving it even though there were a lot of things that were either missing, or didn't make sense! I think it was a nice little piece to try out!

And yep! EquestriaBound was pretty frickin' cool! You did an excellent job with that; I had tons of fun playing that! It will forever be ingrained into my mind as I played it in those cold, cloudy mornings!
