FFX HD Development Almost Complete
Developers Taking Care To Protect Gamers’ Memories
Yoshinori Kitase, producer of the Final Fantasy series, has confirmed that the release of FFX/X-2 HD is “approaching the final stage of development”.
Speaking to Siliconera, Kitase said: ”Just getting an SD quality game and turning it into HD isn’t something we’d settle for.
“The production is based on the memories of those who’ve played the game 10 years ago, but we’re taking our time to develop it so we can make sure that the new HD look and its beautiful form won’t ruin those memories.”
Kitase revealed that the developers have “modified the characters and polygons, one by one” and “revised the textures”.
“Not everything has changed, but the main character expressions in cut-scenes have been altered. However, simply adding polygons can subtly change impressions, so we’re constantly checking while revising to make sure we don’t ruin the image of Tidus and Yuna for the fans.”
Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 HD will be released on PS3 and PS Vita this year. No specific release date has yet been announced.
