Square Enix’s curious reticence about remaking and remastering the much in demand Final Fantasy series continues, this time with the news that FFX fans will have to wait “a while longer.”
Square Enix’s lineariser-in-chief Toriyama touched upon the remake in a recent interview at the Taipei GDC (most of his other comments concerned Taiwan or his opinion of various events):
Let me take the opportunity to just ask you a few other things – first, how is the progress on the HD version of FFX?
Regarding the HD version, a variety of verification is required, so please wait a while longer.
Those hoping to experience the wonders of cloud saves in FFX will apparently have to wait a while longer.
The actual level of improvement the title will enjoy is still unclear – Toriyama previously said graphics would be “much better,” but it appears strictly to be intended as an HD remaster for the Vita and PS3 rather than anything more ambitious.
