Update: Apparently, the statement made during the concert was erroneous. The term ‘remake’ was used in error and there’s currently no plans for a remake of Final Fantasy 12.
A Final Fantasy composer may have blurted out early that a Final Fantasy 12 HD remake is currently in the works by Square Enix.
In Pittsburgh, PA during the weekend, a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert was being held. The composer, Arnie Roth, admitted that a Final Fantasy 12 HD remake is in the works.
Final Fantasy Network uploaded the video on YouTube of Roth admitting that the Final Fantasy 12 HD remake is happening. He said, “there’s a Final Fantasy 12 remake underway too“.
Square Enix said an HD remaster for the 12th game would happen if sales for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster were good enough. That game came out for the PS3, PS Vita and even the PS4. Sales exceeded Square Enix’s expectations so this may have been a factor as to why 12 is getting the HD remaster treatment too.
Bear in mind Roth is just a composer and this is not an official announcement yet. However, Gamescom 2015 is happening next week so it’s likely Roth leaked out the information just a few day’s too early. We’ll have to wait and see if this news ends up being true.
A Final Fantasy 12 HD remaster will be cool to play. It’s still one of my favorite games of the entire series and I spent countless hours enjoying every minute of it. I won’t mind playing the game all over again with prettier visuals and hopefully extra content.
