Square-Enix Announces FFT Remake For U.S./Europe
Okay, Tactics fans, you can breathe a giant sigh of relief now. You knew the PSP remake of the classic PS1 strat/RPG would be available in Japan, and we hoped it would make it to other regions at some point. Unfortunately, all we had were hopes and dreams...until now: Square-Enix has officially announced they'll be bringing Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lion War to North America and Europe.
According to the press release, the game will have a simultaneous launch in the U.S. and Europe, and as we all know by now, the game features all new CG sequences, new Jobs, 16:9 widescreen support, and that very sweet head-to-head multiplayer option. We still don't have a release date as of yet, but that's not what's important; what's important is that we now know for sure that fans won't be forced to import this awesome title. Square-Enix further introduces the "Ivalice Alliance," which has already delivered the original FFT, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA), and Final Fantasy XII. So what's next for the Alliance? Dare we hope for a true Tactics sequel...?
At the same time, Square-Enix also announced they'd be releasing three other games in North America: the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker for the Nintendo DS, and Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors for the Wii.
