Don’t worry if you missed Final Fantasy X the first time round, Square Enix is bringing it back for the PS3 and PS Vita.
I’ll level with you, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that Square Enix is remaking one of the classic Final Fantasy games from the PlayStation era. The bad news is that it’s not the Final Fantasy VII remake that so many people desperately want, it’s Final Fantasy X instead.
Of course, it’s not really bad news. While it might not have been the cultural phenomenon that was FFVII, Final Fantasy X was – and still is – a good game, even if it did have the slightly scary laughing scene you can see above, and a hero that was the dream of a dead civilization – and no, I’m not making that up. Square Enix hasn’t revealed too many details about the remake as yet, except that the game will be available on the PS3 and the upcoming PS Vita.
If I had to guess, I’d say that it’s going to be similar to the updates we’ve seen for series like God of War and Prince of Persia, which means updated visuals and maybe a 3D mode thrown in for the PS3. It seems unlikely that Square Enix will tweak very much other than the visuals, but it may yet surprise us.
