somewhat excited about this. Need some screenshots.
iamtehpwn  +   1344d ago
I'd like to see some too. Does anyone else get the feeling that this is more than just a remaster if it's taking this long? If it were merely a simple upscale with trophies like the other remasters have been, it wouldn't be this secretive as far as what the game looks like..

I sincerely hope Square is going all out with this remake--and in particular re-rendering all the prerendered cutscenes in full 1080p.

This game kind of ranks higher than any game that I've purchased this gen as a day one purchase.

One of my favorite games of all time.

I also hope we can get some screenshots.

As for it being just a remaster, I heard it isn't. I saw a post somewhere before where they answered that it was not just going to be a remaster but indeed a remake. How far will they go with the words "remake" I'm not sure. But that's what they said.

These are just some rumored details I found on the remake:


They actually sound legit, and making me even more excited for this game. Probably my most anticipated for next year
Misterhbk  +   1344d ago
I expect a late 2012 release for this game. If so expect huge numbers for it. People have been craving a classic FF game all generation long. I truly cannot wait for this!

It's kinda odd that if people think this is more then a simple remaster that SE hasn't said a thing to confirm or deny it.

I mean either way they should speak up. If it IS a real remake on a new engine say so as to hype up the fan base who thinks that isn't what it is and if it's not just a simple remaster say so so fans don't get hyped up for something they will not be getting.

Either way I would expect we will know for sure which it will be by or at E3 next year.

Despite its linearity, I have only good memories of this game. So incredible, and also pretty sad. Haven't really played many other JRPGs that have come close (though Resonance of Fate had awesome gameplay, but a crappy story). What I really want is a HD remake, make it look as good as those CGI cutscenes. Not possible, I know, but dammit, that would be awesome.
DragonKnight  +   1343d ago
After playing FFXIII, I can't call FFX linear. Even in the beginning where you're pretty much forced to go forward to Zanarkand, hitting all the temples along the way, you can at least take your time, explore around towns, talk with people, go back (as far as Luca anyway) if you want. You can consider Operation Mi'hen a side mission since it's not part of Yuna's pilgrimage.

It is a superior game to all the FF games released after it thus far.
Man In Black  +   1343d ago
Yeah, it does have a lot of side stuff to do, but until a certain point, it is fairly linear. Still, it's way better than XII and XIII. XII seriously put me on the brink of falling asleep many times, and the story was completely forgettable.

Cannot wait to get this... I don't know how many times I've played through FFX, I'm getting every single trophy... o_o
DragonKnight  +   1343d ago
Chocobo Racing, Butterfly catching trophies. O_O'

Not going to enjoy those. I just hope that we all get the International version with the Dark Aeons and Penance. AND JAPANESE VOICES!
Snookies12  +   1343d ago
Ugh so true... Getting a zero time on chocobo racing was horrible... Also, jumping 200 lightning bolts in a row killed me when I missed on one of the last ones lol.

Yeah though, was just talking to my friend about that, I hope they include Penance in this version!

Final Fantasy XIII VS still in early development.
Final Fantasy X HD still in early development.
Final Fantasy VII remake never entered in early development.

Happily Square is gonna release a true great JRPG on 3DS : Bravely Default. A new IP that seems being in development since a long time.

I don't know what are the relations between Sony and Square these days, but those two corporations have always done really well together, it would really be dommageable for both of them if they miss their cooperation.

I think Sony should have secure also a new IP from Square for the Vita for the Japan market. But for the moment it's early and they have this Pikmin remake or jinda, so it shows that they are still working together.

Hope this will not take too much time.

FFXIII VS nobody talk of the game anymore, don't make the same mistake with this remake.
fluffydelusions  +   1344d ago
You act like Square and Nintendo never had a relationship. FF started on Nintendo.
disturbing_flame  +   1344d ago
You judge people badly. I don't know if you always do it, but respect people before saying something false.

Where am i saying that square never had relationship with Nintendo ?

I am saying that a new IP is releasing on 3DS and i think it gonna be great, it proves that Square have always counted on Nintendo, if they didn't they would not release it on 3DS, and i don't see Nintendo paying Square lot of money just to have exclusives, they have a true relationship because owners of Nintendo 's consoles also wait games from Square on Nintendo devices.

It was the same with Playstation. But with this generation, i don't see Square treating right the fans supporting them through Playstation platforms.

People who bought a Playstation they also bought it to play Square games,there were a lot of JRPG that Square did not release on Playstation, i think those games partly flopped because of that by the way, games like Lost Oddyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, The Last Remnant should have been released on PS3.

So i'm talking about this relationship between Sqaure and Sony, that shows that things are strange between them even if Square games when they are released on PS3, they do pretty good scores. When you see FFXIII outselling xbox version, and certainly FFXIII-2 will do the same, you understand that the public is waiting for Square games, they supported them with PS2 and PS1, they are now waiting for games from them.

If you look at FFXIII VS development it's been 3 years now that we don't have news of the game. each time : "the game is still in early development". If FFX follow the same path, in three years people will still wait for it.

So as i said i hope they will not do the same mistake with this remake.

SE gets angered very easily and needs that extra special treatment. Sure they would make more money going with a established jrpg console like the PS3 or even going multiplatform. But they are a developer who's main satisfaction is having the company by their b@lls.

Your information of "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" is pretty inaccurate.

3 years with no news? Where have you been for the past year? http://n4g.com/channel/fina... Based on everything we know about the game itself and its technical development, it's not hard to estimate that the game is about 65% complete in its raw alpha build. maybe more. Just do the research and you will find it.

The game should be out by the end of 2012 if not early 2013. The problem is that they announced Versus XIII too early and then decided to focus on what seemed like a more valuable multiplatform pursuit (FF XIII). That led them to again put Versus XIII on the sidelines for a sequel which most people didn't really want or ask for.

Nintendo destroyed that relationship by themselves while Sony is still the same, it's Square who are doing everything in their might to capture the western market through the Xbox. Two different things if you ask me @fluffydelusions.

ZombieAssassin  +   1344d ago
I'd think Sony and SE have a good relationship as I believe Sony own over 9% stock in SE. It has seemed weird though that they'd release JRPG's for the 360 and not Ps3 since most sales for those games I'd say come from Japan and xbox doesn't exactly have a fan base there.

Everything at SE is still early in development and will never be finished.

KH3's current deadline is December 31st 3799.

Lucreto  +   1344d ago
I was hoping it was further along in production but if it is a remake and they are not denying it. I will look forward to hear more about it.

I thought it would be out later this year but it looks like late next year.
PshycoNinja  +   1344d ago
Wait I am confused. Are you saying you thought it would be out late THIS year (2011) or this next year (2012)? And are you now expecting it to come out late next year (2012) or the following year (2013)? I have so many questions lol...
Lucreto  +   1344d ago
Sorry my mistake

I was expecting around September 2012 but if they are in early development I expect Winter 2013 now.
Kamikaze135  +   1344d ago
Huh? So we're getting more than just FFX in HD? It's been about 6 months since it was announced and if it's still "early" in development, it seems like we're getting more than just FFX in HD. Perhaps some redone character models? Better textures? Extra boss fights? Anyway, FFX is one of my favorite games. I'm looking forward to it regardless.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1344d ago
They're completely remaking. All of these other collections of PS2 games are not fully remade.
Kamikaze135  +   1344d ago
Can you prove that?
Run_bare  +   1344d ago
I actually don't mind this, FF X is one of the best FF I have ever played. One of my favourite summon is Yojimbo.

Saying that, They should not focus on this as yet, FINISH FFXIII VERSUS before anything else and Remake X properly with new design and engine.
Lucreto  +   1344d ago

DragonKnight  +   1343d ago
It's good, though I still prefer the Japanese one. Probably because I heard it first though. Lol.

CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME! They originally said it was supposed to release early 2012, but I'm guessing winter 2012 now. Which is good, they better do it right.

JECHT WILL PWN ONCE AGAIN! Damn I wish we could play as him instead of Tidus.

Final Fantasy X gets an HD remake... but not Final Fantasy 7?

Are you serious, bro?!
Megaman_nerd  +   1343d ago
Bro FFVII is all pre-rendered art and according to rumors the only thing they are gonna remake are the characters and spells while for FFVII they would have to remake everything!
JasonX43  +   1343d ago
It still bugs me because I think FF7 had a better story even though I like them both!

Square will remake every FF except VII, they'll save that for Playstation 6 and Xbox 1080...

I first got FFX for Christmas in 2004 and when I finished it I thought it was the best game on PS2, and now I think its the best game last gen. I later played the International edition and the dark aeons were pretty cool I actually played it in Japanese the second time, when I finished it I thought I wasnt gonna see that game again for about 10 years but what do you know... here it comes for PS3. I cant wait I have to platinum this game, I just hope the trophy list doesnt have too many BS trophies...
Pozzle  +   1344d ago
If one of the trophies involves dodging those damn lightning bolts....*shakes fist*
Wintersun616  +   1343d ago
I actually hope all of those annoying little "minigames" are required for the platinum rather than it have a completely crappy trophy list like RE4 has.

Let's have trophies for getting all the ultimate weapons, hunting all monsters, beating all monsters at the arena, opening all nodes on the sphere grid and defeating the Dark Aeons and Penance so we can see who's who. That would be epic.
wolokowoh  +   1343d ago
I don't mind getting an ultimate weapon or two but getting all would be insane to repeat and I'm a guy who had every hp, ability, mp, etc. on the sphere grid. I remember Yuna's and Rikku's were extremely easy but everyone else's had some annoying task that either took time or was very difficult.
silkrevolver  +   1344d ago
Frankly, all Square titles are early in development for years. The only recent title they’ve fast tracked is XIII-2, and while I’m excited for it... it’s no Versus...
Animals_as_Leaders  +   1344d ago
They should have saved it for next gen and done a 1080p remake. At least it would have longevity then. What's the point in releasing it on the ass end of the console cycle?
cr33ping_death  +   1344d ago
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! im dying to get my hands on this since my 60 gb fat died on me...have a slim now :(

Magnus  +   1344d ago
Wish the game was coming out this year can't wait for it. While Square is dusting off some games maybe they should do a KH1&2 remake aswell.
j-blaze  +   1344d ago
it's coming to the 360 too, mark my words!
BigDollarZoe954  +   1344d ago
consider it bought soon as it comes out cant wait

Buying it day one. This was the first game I bought when I got my PS2 and it still on my top 5 PS2 Games
BigDollarZoe954  +   1343d ago
same here top 5 on my ps2 games as well
resistance100  +   1344d ago
Still really hoping this hits in 2012 but probably won't. (heres hoping i'm wrong)

Day 1 buy for me as it was my favorite Final Fantasy game.
PCE  +   1344d ago
Enough with the remakes already. Make a new FF game that's worth playing. Stop relying on past titles we've all played for your revenue. Ugh.
Pledius  +   1344d ago
is it confirmed if this is just rerelase type of thing? or are they actually going to update graphics, add more content and such?

I mean either way I'll still buy this game but I want to know if it's just kinda like PSN release of PSone FF games thing or not.

please someone answer please
sirauron14  +   1344d ago
I cant wait to get some more info on this game next time i hope soon will be some images or a small trailer :P

If we can't set the voices to Japanese then don't bother remaking it tbh...
Wintersun616  +   1343d ago
If you want japanese you can always import the japanese version you know.
Wintersun616  +   1343d ago
If it's a remake I hope they don't touch the content itself such as minigames and battle system, but just remake the same game with new graphics and upgraded sound effects.
resistance100  +   1343d ago

They need to make sure they keep Blizball the same
Inception  +   1343d ago
Is this only an HD port with polish graphic & thropies just like MGS or Ico collection. Or a complete remake with FF 13 graphic?

If a complete remake than no, maybe i'll skip it. With SE current condition, i'm afraid they will ruin it -_-

btw, what the hell is wrong with SE?
why they keep doing remake after remake?
FF 4 NDS, FF 4 complete edition PSP, Tactics Ogre PSP, etc etc
Are they don't have anymore creative / genius people like Yasumi Matsuno or Tetsuya Takahashi?
