RPG Hack Showcase: Filly Fantasy 6 (SNES)

Hack Showcases and RPG Hack Showcases are a series where I show off various game and rpg hacks. I try to stick with hacks that improve gameplay or add quality of life features, completely or partially change the plot and characters, along with additional content, dialogue, graphical and sound improvements. Non-rpgs I try to give a full run to, or at least enough for a solid review. Rpgs I will stick with titles that have enough changes in the beginning to show off, and when I can, show parts later in the games where more differences appear. There may be spoilers in the reviews and videos. Some of these I may stream fully in the future or play on my own. Reviews are open to later revisions due to bug and content updates or me playing them and finding anything new I wish to bring up.

Filly Fantasy 6 by DrakeyC is a hack of FF3/6 themed around the reboot My Little Pony series. The main plot beats of FF6 remain, but everything else is changed from the heroes and villains, locations, gear, Espers and more. This hack is more themed towards fans of the MLP reboot, but anyone who isn’t a fan can still find enjoyment in it (like myself). The readme file included lists the bulk of the changes, but there is a grand database google file (link below) with all of the other changes, fixes and additions. Many enemies were changed to MLP related as drawn graphics compared to sprite work. Also worth noting this hack can tend to be on the hard side, and an easy mode patch is included. Since the list of changes is pretty long, for a preview I’ll stick to the changes of the main cast of FF6 to their pony counterparts:

  • Terra, as Twilight Sparkle
  • Locke, as Flash Sentry
  • Edgar, as Princess Celestia
  • Sabin, as Princess Luna
  • Celes, as Princess Cadance
  • Cyan, as Applejack
  • Shadow, as Fluttershy
  • Gau, as Scootaloo
  • Mog, as Pinkie Pie
  • Setzer, as Rainbow Dash
  • Strago, as Rarity
  • Relm, as Sweetie Belle
  • Gogo, as Trixie
  • Umaro, as Apple Bloom

With most romhacks, strongly suggested to check out the readme files for advice on the changes to hacks and any gameplay tips, especially with rpgs. Readme files for rpg hacks can contain additional gameplay advice, etc, and it’s worth subscribing to hacks you like on RHDN to keep up with updates for bug fixes, additional content, etc.
