Square Enix: A Final Fantasy HD Collection Is Possible
High-definition remakes are big these days. And if they're selling, why not make more?
Perhaps a Final Fantasy VII remake is out of the question, but why can't the PS2 generation FF installments find new life in the world of HD?
No reason, really, and Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase has confirmed that if there's a "strong enough voice," they'd "seriously consider" a high-definition collection of some classic titles. He adds that they haven't made up their minds yet and for now, there are no plans to remake the likes of Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, and/or Final Fantasy XII in HD. But you know, we're not buying this whole "strong enough voice" thing. There's something about it that doesn't quite ring true...what is it...let me think...oh yes:
You want a big fan outcry? Is that what you want? You mean, like the one that has been going on for about a decade concerning FFVII? That kind of outcry? We're not sure you'd notice a gathering of fans with torches and pitchforks standing outside your doors, Square Enix. So forgive us for being a little skeptical.
