Final Fantasy X will be a 'remaster' and not a 'remake' photo



I hope you weren't expecting anything extra with the return of Final Fantasy X, announced at last year's Sony press conference at TGS. Square Enix's Shinji Hashimoto answered some fan questions at the Taipei Game Show and made it clear there that the upcoming Vita and PS3 re-release of this game would be a "remaster."

This means that we'll probably get a cleaned up, maybe up-rezzed version of the PS2 RPG, and not a total reworking. Sorry, no online Blitzball for you. I'd bet that the only benefit you'll get from this re-release is being able to see Nomura's batsh*t crazy designs in a higher resolution. Great.

According to GNN, Hashimoto noted that "the screen is much prettier than the original," whatever that means.

For me, a "remaster" absolutely fine, as this is one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. I just hope that it will be priced like a digital re-release. 

Don't call it a remake: Final Fantasy X is a 'remaster,' to be clear [Joystiq]

Final Fantas-free: 14 day Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial

Square Enix is offering 14 days of free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC. As someone who doesn't like MMOs, but likes Final Fantasy, I might just try it out. Fourteen may be the perfect number of days for me to get my fill. Or maybe I'll find myself a convert and end up a paying customer, as Square Enix likely hopes. more

Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura designed a Batman figure that looks like a Gundam

Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight. The first prototype, above, is gracing Comic Con and looking a bit like Death Scythe from Gundam Wing (with some Spawn in there, maybe).more

All you have to do is create a short video of your own musical rendition of the Final Fantasy "Main Theme". I took the opportunity to try to turn this news report into an entry for the contest. I probably won't win.more
