With more and more fairly bad news for Square Enix lately people have been wondering what they were going to do next. What turns out to be one of the safer bets for big companies who are blowing in the breeze is that they will decide to go back to the well and draw on old water. Apparently they will be doing this with their remake of Final Fantasy X.
According to Yoshinori Kitase, a producer for the original FFX, the PS3 and Vita creations will be more than just a HD remaster, but a complete remake. The game will look and play the same but will have some upgraded shadings and a lack of a remade sequel to look for.
The game was announced back at the Tokyo Game Show in September 2011 with the game just being teased in it's early stages with Kitase's role unclear. However, he says the remake will match the quality of the original. I remember playing Final Fantasy X back in the day and kind of enjoying it despite not being a JRPG fan. I hope Kitase won't be pissing off fans new and old with a remake. Although, having the game on the Vita will be great for gamers who will want to play it on long road trips.
What was news to me was that Final Fantasy X was not the game that was being remade but that it was popular enough to warrant it.
