Final Fantasy X "Remake" Still Early in Development
Last September, Shinji Hashimoto announced that Square would be re-releasing the PS2 RPG classic, Final Fantasy X, in HD for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita. Now, Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy X, said the game is in its early development stages and also described it as a remake.
According to an interview from German magazine, M! Games, Kitase explained Final Fantasy X HD is still very early in development and explained that he wasn't sure what his role would be with the new game, only stating that he would “ensure that the remake of the game will have the same quality as the original.”
Interestingly enough, Kitase also described the re-release of Final Fantasy X as a remake and not just an HD upgrade to the original game.
2011 marked the tenth anniversary for Final Fantasy X in the U.S. as it was released in 2001. Kitase's latest project is Final Fantasy XIII-2, which releases on January 31.
