Rumor: Final Fantasy XII is getting a remake

According to Distant Worlds composer

Today at a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert in Pittsburgh, composer Arnie Roth stated that “there is a Final Fantasy XII remake underway,” adding that it would be coming out “soon.”

Maybe he meant HD remaster. That sounds more likely than a full remake à la Final Fantasy VII.

Square Enix hasn’t made any official announcement regarding this, mind you. But the publisher just put out enhanced versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2 for PlayStation systems, so another remaster seems plausible. Actually, it would be more surprising if it didn’t happen sooner or later.

Also, for what it’s worth, Roth made a special note to point out that Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy Tactics composer Hitoshi Sakimoto was in attendance at the event.

We’ve reached out to Square Enix for comment, but don’t expect the publisher to confirm or deny.
