When Final Fantasy X HD was announced for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show, many questioned whether it will be a remastered edition with updated graphics or a full remake. According to Taiwanese website Gamer, the game will be the latter, confirmed at the 2012 Taipei Game Show.
Square Enix’s Shinji Hashimoto was the one who confirmed that the game will be a remastered version in the following quote:
“It’s being developed as an HD Remaster, but the visuals will be much more beautiful than before. Please look forward to it!”
This is a bit unfortunate. After the announcement, there were rumours swirling around that the game was to get more than a graphical overhaul, However, if the visual comment is true, then it could be concluded that the Crystal Engine and the Luminous Engine will be used to develop the game’s visuals.
