More Final Fantasy Games Could Be Heading To PS4

Square Enix may be thinking of releasing some more Final Fantasy video games on the PS4.

Earlier this month, Square Enix confirmed its porting over Final Fantasy VII to the PS4. It was then revealed last week that they are porting over Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster to the PS4 as well.

Final Fantasy series producer Shinji Hashimoto talked to 4Gamer on the possibility of porting more games the franchise onto the PS4. He said the reasoning for this is because of the system’s lack of backwards compatibility and limited “optimization of cloud gaming services.” Releasing the old games on the PS4 is the best way to present these games’ “beauty” as he puts it.

Another reason Square Enix wants to port more games over to the PS4 is because of the Chinese market. China has just got the PS4 and its their first Sony console in a long time. They want to port these games so that they can experience how fun Final Fantasy games can be.

Hashimoto didn’t want to specify which other classic Final Fantasy games could be released for the PS4. He said the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy could work, but they would need “to form a new team to do that.”
