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.

Check back later on for the full Final Fantasy XIII-2 transcript from our chat with Kitase and Final Fantasy Director, Motomu Toriyama.

its squarenix, theyll turn it into garbage somehow


:werd:

They'd probably just do a quick upgrade to the original graphics as opposed to re-doing everything like the teasers they put out for the PS3 release. Better than nothing but not at all what they would have led us to believe.

square is bleeding money like no other, theyve made so many shitty studio purchases in the last 6 years that i doubt they have the resources to make an ff7 remake thats actually good

my first thought was that they'd just up the resolution somehow, without actually redoing anything.

Like the Blu-Ray version of a DVD movie...same content, just looks better.

Not to mention...How many years would it take them to actually REMAKE any of the games? They'd be obsolete even before they were available.

holy shit, the people in charge of the asian square-enix projects are morons. After years of saying that remakes would be impossible they are finally considering them after other companies have created successful remakes. way to stay behind the times, S-E.

They should just end their reign by releasing an FF7 remake then handing the company over to white people. (I'm not racist, seriously)

That's not really how it works. Movies are shot at a higher resolution than DVD's deliver, and so this makes a Blu-ray release of the same movie very easy. Even if the movie is 30 or 40 years old, the film they used was incredibly clear and still looks great in HD.

But with games, you typically develop them at the standard resolution of the current gen.

this hd version would be different than what everyone's been hoping for for years. It would be more in line with what the current batch of remakes are.

compare this

with

there's no way in hell they would do the second one unfortunately, the time has passed and they don't have the funds or care for it anymore.

I hear what you're saying, and that's the exact reason why they say they wont do a remake, because it would take too long to bring it up to today's standards of graphics. My problem is with square's absolute obsession with graphics and presentation at the expense of everything else, including fun - that's what killed FF13 and it's probably what will kill the rest of the single play FF games.

So what was the story with this, anyway?
[y]Hb6Ah_fGFCM[/y]
They made a tech demo of the game everyone wants, teased the shit out of FFVII obsessed fans and gave them boners...then left them with blue balls. They should have just kept going with development. Who is the moron at Square that doesnt see the potential with this? I guarantee it would sell better than anything they've released in the past 5 years.

I'm not one of those crazed FFVII fans. I never even finished it. I still have the black label version of the game and spent the $10 bucks to buy the PSN game. Played a bit of that. I would definitely buy a ps3 remake though...I bet they could sell millions of copies with no problem. Somebody needs to say "okay we're idiots if we don't do this" and get it done.

Remember this a few years back? People really wondering if it was kept so incredibly secret that it was really going to show up on shelves and that Best Buy accidentally spilled the beans? Haha.

Because Square's president doesn't run on logic and sense. Have you played FFXIV? Had I been anywhere in the decision making, that project would've been scrapped from the start.

Actually nah I havent. I was interested in it until I heard how shitty it was.
The merge between Square and Enix just killed Square....Squaresoft was the shit. Enix was all JRPG BS and that's basically all the merged company is capable of nowadays. Wonder where the Squaresoft team went.

most of them are still with SE. Most asian countries believe in company loyalty so whenever someone leaves the company, its a big deal.
