Love it, love it, love it. (Did I say I love it?) :)

This is somehow the game I have put the most time into on my ps5 so far. It also convinced me to add a psvr2 and wheel, which I am both happy I have and angry I bought at the same time lol

outsider16246m ago

Same here. Just finished a race a few mins ago and came here lol. I came 6th and even then such a fantastic race. Except for 1 or 2 most racers were really clean and respectful.
Planning to get the wheel (sold it to a friend) again along with psvr2.


Final Fantasy Tactics director says there's currently "no plans" to remaster the RPG

Earlier this week, Yasumi Matsuno - writer and director of Final Fantasy Tactics - replied to a fan on Twitter and cleared up those remaster rumors. When asked if the developer could add a progression system to the game's Ultima spell in any potential remasters, Matsuno replied: "Currently, there are no plans for remastering," before asking the fan (and others) to direct any requests to Square Enix instead of them.

Would love to see a full-on remake of Tactics some day. Superb game. I still remember my second or third playthrough, finding out that a certain "other" Final Fantasy character could be recruited... Kind of blew my mind haha. (Even though they started at level 1 unfortunately.)

Yea, I just saw Matsuno's second response:

"I'm very sorry.
That's all can say as my position right now.
I'll leave it to you whether you believe it or not.
Thank you."

If SquareEnix completely remakes the game, he isn't lying at all. It won't be a remaster.

I believe Final Fantasy Tactics is special enough that they would put in the extra effort for a remake!

Michiel198913h ago

it wouldn't ship enough compared to other titles they can remaster I imagine. It definitely deserves a remake, but I think it's low on their list. If you want a similar game, you could try out Triangle Strategy (it's on steam now as well).

OtterX1d 21h ago

That's a real shame. I was hoping they would do a Tactics Remastered which included the PS1, GBA and DS titles. 3 of my favorite games of all time.

Relientk771d 14h ago

Hopefully he's just trying to mislead everyone. I would love a Final Fantasy Tactics remake. I have such fond memories of playing this and Tactics Ogre, growing up. Tactics Ogre got a remake now its Final Fantasy Tactics turn. I would buy it day 1.

CrimsonWing6923h ago(Edited 23h ago)

This actually hurts. I was playing Tactics Ogre Reborn and thinking how amazing it’s going to be to have current-gen HD Remaster or Remake of FF Tactics… really bummed out by this.

shinoff218321h ago

Maybe no remaster cause it's being remade Ala star ocean 2 style. I'd love to see a full on ff7 remake looking tactics game but star ocean 2 remake style is acceptable.

Michiel198913h ago

I'd prefer if they kept it sprites and not 3d models, there's something about sprites in tactics games that just makes it fit way better than most 3d tactics games.

Capcom Confirms More Resident Evil Remakes Are Coming

After the success of the Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4 remakes, Capcom has confirmed plans to continue the trend, although stopped short of announcing which Resident Evil game is next in line for the remake treatment.

kenpachi1d 22h ago

Dino crisis instead please

just_looken1d 15h ago

Right or go crazy and bring back there old street fighter titles

But na remake old RE games that somehow 20yrs later get awards for being the best game of that year like sure....

Amplitude1d 14h ago (Edited 1d 14h ago )

@just_looken: they're completely redesigned from the ground up. RE2 and 3 even moreso. It's completely valid that RE4 could win GOTY. Thats like saying MW3 2023 shouldn't have a chance to win GOTY (if it were actually good) simply because it shares a name and concept with an older release. Very silly logic tbh

I want Resident Evil Code Name Veronica.

Imo, the best RE story of all.

-Foxtrot1d 22h ago

Code Veronica is a must

RE5 but I want it like the original 4.5 ideas, if they must have co-op then I want it drop in drop out so single player gamers can enjoy the game with the solo survival horror themes in tact.

The original ideas had things like heatstroke if you stayed in the sun too long and also if you stayed inside for long period and enter to the outside too quickly your vision would be blurred to refocus in the bright sun.
