Square announces Final Fantasy X remake for PS3 and Vita!
The launch titles weren’t the only Vita games discussed at TGS last night, as there were a few others and one that is perhaps the biggest shocker of the bunch, is a HD remake of the PS2 classic Final Fantasy X!
Square Enix revealed that the Final Fantasy X is getting a new-age facelift, which will be released on both the PS Vita and the PS3.
Will it be a direct port? Will it offer new content? We don’t know the answers to these questions yet, but Square did say that development of this remake is well underway.
Many Final Fantasy fans are bound to be excited for this release and if it’s as good as past remakes (like say, Final Fantasy IV on the DS), they shouldn’t be disappointed.
I wonder if anyone will be asking for a Final Fantasy X-2 remake? You know, without the sarcasm?
Great Scott! The Sarcasm Meter is off the chart! It's ABOUT 9000+!!
Oh that is pretty ass, no game for 360 owners. Well, the original WAS PS2 exclusive, so I can't rage too much about it. lol
Fuck you Square, why not keep on track and give us remakes of V,VI,VII,VIII,IX in that order, I would seriously pay my kidney for a remake of Final Fantasy VI and VIII.
Square Enix needs to stop being retarded, and start listening to the fans, they need to remake the most obvious best FF game out there, that's right, Final Fantasy 13~ With updated graphics, and music, however they need to keep the combat system, as that was the best in series, 1 character to control is the best option for an RPG. Feel like exploring a beautiful world, check out towns, poke at random NPC's? Well forget about that, you're on the run for 80% of the game, on an easily accessible one way path, best game ever!
OH NO, Don't go there about that fail game you mention! FFX-2... FREAKIN No~ that's like saying "hey square enix, why don't you loose money on a game people hated about years back" You should have put it out of sarcasm.. It's better that way.
LOL FFX is the FF game that made me quit playing FF
I agree with you man. Final Fantasy 10 had a much better story and you can connect to the characters a lot more and the battle system was excellent. I cannot wait for this HD remake, this is my favorite game of all time, and that's when it was on the PS2, now when it comes to PS3, i might just die of happiness. :P
is HD the only thing that's different? i will probably buy this one day but i doubt i will finish it since the combat is outdated fuck
Dont they plan to remaster I VI V VII as well darn it they dont listen to their audience.
They are "remastering" this game first because it is clearly much easier to remaster since its a ps2 games.
I prefer FFX over FVII any day but thats just me.
You have a good idea. An organized campaign of some sort would show them it's wanted even more than they think. The funny part is that I bitch yet at the same time I will probably get the remake. I have to admit, X had the only final boss battle crazyness that actually had me give the game up for evers and than go back to it from scratch just to make sure that Sin would be spanked.
I do realize that 'stop crying" can be harsh which is what I meant it to be (this includes myself). The reason for saying "stop crying" is because when the FFXll remake comes out I will be remineded that yet again none everyone of us is going to be ask where the hell is FFVll's remake? Now like you I hope that this remake dose show that Square-Enix that remaking FFVll might not be such a bad idea. Also when I say "stop crying" I also mean instead of having us complian on web sits like this and Square's. How about we find a way to show Square-Enix that we want a FFVll remake in such a way that it would be impossible for them not remake it. This most likly is me rambling my mouth off in frustration for wondering why I and others have not done more to show by actions rather than words. KITTENS IN MITTENS!!!
Spoony will be displeased.
Better train my thumb for that 200 lightning dodge..
I understand what your saying, it makes perfect sense about the budget. Hopefully the response to the remake of X will prompt them to go further with their HD remakes and get into the FF games that most of us actually care about. Hell, if that were the case and if the exploration in X wasn't as linear as XIII than I'd support it. Sorry for the "do your research or stfu" bit but you have to realize that it is quite a bit insulting when you tell those of us who want the VII remake to "stop crying". It's demeaning and the only way it would be exceptable is if you formed it as a joke/reference to the clone bros in Advent Children because then AT LEAST it would be funny.
Now...Who wants some Kitten Mittens?
HD....what else is there with this game? Right now all we can do is hope that "HD" isn't their only selling point to the game. I love the series to death but I don't need the same game over and over (unless it's IV, VI or VII. Those are guilty pleasures) :p
Tetsuya Nomura is the lead character designer and has no authoirty to say whether or not they are going to remake FFVll. Like all of us he wants to remake FFVll, so ofcourse he and others are going around talking to gameing news web sites trying to get as much people to support this amazing idea. The only problem is tha they want a shit ton of money for this remake which the higher ups are not to thrilled to give out yet. So stop your crying until "Yeah I'll think about your buget" Says yes to a remake it is not going to happen.
VII sold over 100,000 copies on PSN in less than two weeks in North America alone when it was re-released on PSN, so there is definitely still demand for it. SE have always said that The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII could remain an active franchise until the twentieth anniversary of Final Fantasy VII's release, so IF we do see a remake of VII it'll most likely be at the end of Compilations life span used in conjuction with the celebration of VII's 20th anniversary.
But that's a really big if...
