Square Enix has decided to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series by releasing the first two adventures on PSP.

Final Fantasy I and II will be available across the US on 26th June and 24th July respectively. The titles are currently unconfirmed for Europe.

These anniversary editions will be completely remastered for the handheld. New features include updated graphics, unexplored dungeons, 16:9 presentation, updated camera views and new character art.

Final Fantasy was released in Japan 20 years ago, and began what has turned out to be an immensely popular series, today totalling more than 75 million sales worldwide.

The first game tells the story of four adventurers summoned to bring the world back to a harmonious elemental balance, seeking out an evil entity that has created a rift in the structure of time.

Final Fantasy II follows four brave fellows once more, this time battling an evil emperor who has unleashed an army of demons to take over the world.

"So much has changed within the video game industry since the first console was launched, and Final Fantasy has always pushed the envelope, creating the most advanced graphics and immersive storylines possible," said Shinji Hashimoto, executive producer for the games. "It is amazing to see how far Final Fantasy has come in the past twenty years, and we cannot wait to continue bringing fans more Final Fantasy titles in the next 20 years."
