There's even an option to switch between a remastered soundtrack and the new soundtrack. 

Two more upgrades are: a new trial mode with over 100 battle levels of increasing difficulty and New Game Plus, which grants those who complete the game an option to restart with special items and abilities.

Square Enix owns the Final Fantasy franchise, which is a science fiction and media company focused on role-playing video games.
