We were finally given a release date for the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster in Japan earlier today, and while those of us in the West may have to wait a while before it comes our way, the Remaster is hopefully a stepping stone for other Final Fantasy titles getting the HD treatment.
Game Director Yoshinori Kitase has previously brought up how Final Fantasy XII HD would be the most obvious, and now he was interviewed by Play Magazine (via NowGamer), where he asked whether we might see more HD Final Fantasy titles if the Remaster is successful:
We’d love a Vita version of Final Fantasy 12… I am also hoping that this HD remaster will open up some great possibilities in the future.
He was questioned further as to why he specifically called out the PS Vita:
The gaming scene has changed quite a bit from 10 years ago and today’s younger generation who grew up with smart devices now carry these devices around with them to play games whenever and wherever they want, not just when they go outside but also at home, wherever they may be in the house as well. Even when they are in the toilet!
One of the appealing things about the PS Vita is that it allows for this kind of play style. In addition to that, another advantage is that it has a wonderful LCD display that can hold up to the PS3 in terms of graphical quality.
Do you think the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be successful enough for Square Enix to do Final Fantasy XII HD? Let us know in the comments below.
