Final Fantasy VI Advance is a Game Boy Advance video game that serves as a remake of Final Fantasy VI. It was first released in Japan in 2006 and then in North America, Europe, and Australia in 2007. The game was ported by TOSE and published by Square Enix in Japan and by Nintendo in other countries. Final Fantasy VI Advance is the last game that Nintendo published for the Game Boy Advance. It was later ported to the Wii U Virtual Console in 2015, exclusively in Japan.

Unlike the earlier Final Fantasy remakes−Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Final Fantasy IV Advance, and Final Fantasy V AdvanceFinal Fantasy VI Advance did not receive its own Nintendo Player's Guide, likely because it was released at the very end of the Game Boy Advance's lifespan.
