Final Fantasy X Will Be Remastered, Not Remade

News PS Vita RPG Playstation 3 Sony Square Enix

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.

Would you have preferred a full HD remake or is a remastered version the way to go? Give us your thoughts below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
