Square Enix has confirmed the release date for The Last Remnant Remastered for the PS4. It is due to release on December 6th, or the same day as Japan as announced earlier today.
To celebrate the announcement, Square Enix has shared a trailer and the producers of the game were interviewed by the official PlayStation Blog.
Regarding any new content, here is what the director of the remastered version had to say in this regard.
There is no new content. It includes all of the elements that were added when it was ported to the PC version. On top of that, we’ve enabled high-speed movement in the field. Also, we’ve increased the number of save data slots. I think both of these will be helpful during gameplay.
Speaking about the remaster, he explained why it took them so long to get the remaster out after originally releasing for the Xbox 360 and PC.
Back then, although we had announced we were making a PS3 version, we were unable to release it due to internal factors at our company. However, we had been waiting for an opportunity for a port or remaster. This time, with the cooperation of the development company involved, we were able to confirm the feasibility of the remaster, and that’s how we were able to take that step forward toward creating the PS4 version. I’m glad we were able to release it during the tenth anniversary.
The Last Remnant Remastered will launch on December 6th exclusively for the PS4. It will cost $19.99 and currently it is only available digitally.
