Want Final Fantasy XII HD? Square Enix wants fans to show demand

By -

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD released back in December in Japan proved to be very successful for Square Enix selling over 400k units. According to a new report Square Enix might not be ready to remaster other Final Fantasy games like Final Fantasy XII anytime soon. Square Enix has already re-released most of the prior Final Fantasy titles on mobile devices and portable consoles, but Final Fantasy XII still proves to be one of the most requested games fans want to play again in HD.

Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy producer Shinji Hashimoto when asked about their plans to work on the much requested Final Fantasy XII remaster by SG Cafe, had the following to say:

At this moment, we do not have any plans. But as Kitase-san has mentioned, if there are a lot of requests from the fans for a HD remastered version of Final Fantasy XII, we might consider it.

But with that said, at this moment there are no plans to do so.

Yoshinori Kitase did show an interest in porting Final Fantasy XII to the PS Vita last October.

Final Fantasy XII was released for the Playstation 2 back in 2006 and is one of the highest rated and best selling titles ever. Final Fantasy XII spawned a sequel in 2007 in the form of Final Fantasy XII: Relevant Wings, but failed to capture the magic of the original.

Hashimoto-san also denied on-going rumors about a Final Fantasy X-3 which started after Square released a picture drama alongside the HD remaster of the duology that takes place after the events of the second game:

Since we’re revisiting Final Fantasy X and X-2, which were released about 10 years ago, the series’ scenario writer Kazushige Nojima and character designer Tetsuya Nomura had a discussion and thought that the HD Remaster release would be a good opportunity for them to include this additional story episode [and expand upon the univese a little further]. But the audio episode’s inclusion wasn’t because we have any plans to develop a Final Fantasy X-3.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD arrives in North America and Europe this March for the PS3 and PS Vita. PS3 version bundle both games together while the Vita version will have the games available separately. Do you want Square Enix to make a Final Fantasy XII HD? Let us know in the comments below.

  • gast

    i really really want final fantasy 12 as a remaster to HD
    FF 10 and 12 are the only FF’s for which you need a second device to play…(regular)

    Final Fantasy IX was my favorite followed by VIII and X… even XI. I really want ff IX remastered but that will never happen. XII was an ok game even with nobuo uematsu gone. However, I would buy an hd version of FF XII only if it were ported to the PS Vita. The ps2 graphics were fine. Therefore if I wanted to replay it I would plug in my ps2. I want it portable if they do remaster it.

  • Sentient

    Without a doubt YES BRING IT BACK ESPECIALLY ON VITA

  • Blatte

    I dream about this game from time to time, only game i do that with, and i play alot. Must be the best game EVER!! Plus one of the hardest bosses ever in games, havent beaten him yet, he has over 50 million in life, WE NEEEED THE HD REMAKE with that trophy to make it really wort the while and have a HUGE merit, COME ON!!!

    • Gary

      Allowing you to return to the save crystal during the battle made yiazmat the easiest final fantasy side boss… compared to ultima/ultimate weapon in ff VII and Penance in FF X… even Ozma in FF IX. I am guessing you have not played many of the other FF games.

      • Blatte

        You guessed wrong. Ive played all the ff:s 1-5 on nes i belive, long time ago.

        Yes ive played all the other ones from vii to xiii also.

        Ok you are right it is not the hardest boss ever, my fault i ment it is the boss that takes the longest time of all the ff bosses. Personally Penance was the hardest boss ever. The ultimas and omegas are not that hard. Ozma wasnt that hard either. Period we NEEEEED FF12 remake.

        • Gary

          Lol ok I guessed wrong :) I guess I just had to grind less in order to beat yiazmat and it took a lot less strategy then the others. I just love how SE states that we need to demand it yet gives us no way to express that demand.

  • Jsn1

    FF12 is BY FAR my favorite FF title. Would love it on the Vita.

  • MikeyBlueEyez1 .

    Fuck SE… Ever since SquareSoft joined with Enix it’s been a down hill fall towards oblivion… I one game every wants that SE actually made after the merger that most people liked, and they are going to keep making BS like Lightning Returns, which is the worst GAME i’ve ever played, let alone FF! Complete waste of $60. Someone in Japan should have to disembowel themselves after letting this garbage hit the shelfs…
