Kitase: Final Fantasy HD Console Collection Would Be Seriously Considered if Demand Was High Enough
When you ask the everyday gamer what their favourite Final Fantasy was, you’re likely to get a lot of different responses... whether that’s VII, VIII or X, whatever, fans are split on what their favourite Final Fantasy is.
With Sony and Ubisoft leading the way with HD remake collections of classic titles, we turned the question over to Final Fantasy Producer, Yoshinori Kitase, who told us that they were undecided at the moment, but if there’s a strong enough voice, they would “seriously consider it.”
“We haven’t made up our mind about that yet,” said Kitase, “but if there was a strong voice coming through from the users asking for such porting, then obviously we would seriously consider it, but no actual plans yet.”
So there you have it folks... speak up, shout from the rooftops, email Square Enix, start petitions, have it tattooed on your forehead or marry a Thai bride, have children and name them after Final Fantasy’s lead characters. If this makes your mouth water at the prospect of reliving them in HD, let’s see that strong voice.
