Most notably, Final Fantasy VI 2.0 features control enhancements.
It brings about a redesign of the game’s D-pad and delivers a handful of welcomes changes to the virtual control mechanism. The D-pad now remains on-screen even after you take your finger off the screen. “This enables you to lift your finger and then press a directional arrow for easier control over character movement,” Square Enix notes. The D-pad’s input angles and ranges have also been tweaked to facilitate movement.

If you’d rather not use the D-pad, you can now use an MFi game controller instead when playing Final Fantasy VI.
In its release notes for the latest update to Final Fantasy VI, Square Enix mentions the Logitech PowerShell as the only supported gamepad. But according to Touch Arcade, the SteelSeries Stratus also works and perhaps other game controllers do as well.
Final Fantasy VI 2.0 also includes new Tab (Left) and Tab (Right) modes for battle command navigation and language support for Portuguese, Russian, and Thai.
