Final Fantasy game director Yoshinori Kitase told RPGSite that if the HD remakes of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 are successful, Square Enix may remaster more FF titles.
"We'll have to wait and see if these remasters are going to be successful, first," Kitase said. "If they do well, I think this will pave the way for more of the previous games to remade in an HD sort of quality."
Of course, this is going to lead to more clamoring for an HD remake of Final Fantasy VII or even Final Fantasy VI (III for the US). So when asked which title may be remastered next, Kitase said that he wants to remaster Final Fantasy XII. That should make FF fans happy.
"I mean, if we had to single out one of the vast number of Final Fantasy titles which we could make in HD, it would have to be Final Fantasy XII," he said. "I was not involved in the project, though, so we can't really comment on that.
"What I can say though is that I hope the remastering of X and X-2 will trigger similar projects for more of the past games," he added.
For the love of God, Square Enix, stop dangling this carrot in front of our faces already. You know that remastering a certain FF game will equal instant success, so stop placing stipulations on what you need in order to do it. Either do it or don't.
