Square Enix Might Consider FFXII HD, If They Get Enough Requests
The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remasters are already available in Japan, and they'll be out in the US next month.
So, now that Square Enix has issued a high-definition overhaul of two PS2 Final Fantasy entries, how's about the third? What's stopping them from doing Final Fantasy XII HD?
Well, they're not ruling it out but for now, there are "no plans" for such a project. Speaking with SG Cafe, series producer Shinji Hashimoto was asked about Yoshinori Kitase's previously documented interest in a FFXII remaster. Hashimoto's response:
"At this moment, we do not have any plans [to release a HD remastered version of Final Fantasy XII]. But as Kitase-san has mentioned, if there are a lot of requests from the fans for a HD remastered version of Final Fantasy XII, we might consider it. But with that said, at this moment there are no plans to do so."
As for the idea of Final Fantasy X-3, that won't be happening. They expanded upon FFX-2 a little for the sake of the HD Remaster, but the developers won't be revisiting that particular story arc. If you're wondering, the FFX/X-2 HD Remasters have sold over 400,000 copies in Japan alone...which, by the way, is just about what the latest entry, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, has sold.
