Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2 HD sales could lead to more series remasters

Successful retail sales of Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD could spur developer Square Enix to consider remastering more titles in the 25-year-old fantasy role-playing franchise, according to game director Yoshinori Kitase.

Speaking with RPGSite, Kitase said good sales of the high-definition editions of the games, initially launched for PlayStation 2 in 2001 and 2003 respectively, could "pave the way" for more upgraded remakes.

"We'll have to wait and see if these remasters are going to be successful, first," Kitase said. "If they do well, I think this will pave the way for more of the previous games to remade in an HD sort of quality."

When asked which title he would like to see updated next, Kitase responded that 2006's Final Fantasy 12 was his first choice.

"I mean, if we had to single out one of the vast number of Final Fantasy titles which we could make in HD, it would have to be Final Fantasy 12," he said. "I was not involved in the project, though, so we can't really comment on that.

"What I can say though is that I hope the remastering of 10 and 10-2 will trigger similar projects for more of the past games," he added.

Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2 HD will launch for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, though there is currently no announced release date. Check out our hands-on preview from E3 here.
