One of the most well known Final Fantasy developers Yoshinori Kitase has been recorded saying that the success of Final Fantasy X and X-2 could pave the way for more classic games in HD. It all falls back to the success of Final Fantasy X and X-2, Kitase stated that, “We’ll have to wait and see if these remasters ( FFX & X-2 ) are going to be successful, first.” He continued by saying, ” If they do well, I think this will pave the way for more of the classic games to be remastered in HD ” Could he be hinting at a possible Final Fantasy 7 remake if all goes well?
Classic Games In HD:
Final Fantasy X was without a doubt an instant success, having sold over 7 million copies worldwide. It was only a matter of time that a remake was to happen, but many are left wondering why Final Fantasy 7 wasn’t remade first. I believe the only reason it wasn’t remade first is because they wanted to test the waters and see if an HD remake of a popular game would sell well. Why invest money into something that may or may not work? Of course Final Fantasy 7 would cost more because its not only an older game but it is one of the greatest games ever created. To date, Final Fantasy 7 has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. I’m almost certain that Final Fantasy X-X2 HD remake will be an instant success, I would be shocked if the next remake on their list wasn’t Final Fantasy 7.
Remastering Classic Games:
Square Enix has many classic games that they can remaster, here are a few options in order that I think they should remake them in.
- Final Fantasy 7
- Parasite Eve
Of course there are many to choose from, which classic games do you want to see remastered?
