Despite conflicting reports to the contrary, Square Enix’s upcoming PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita based Final Fantasy X update is not going to be a full remake.
Producer Shinji Hashimoto clarified the situation in an interview at the Taipai Game Show:
It’s being developed like a remaster, but the visuals will be much more improved compared to the original game.
Colleague Yoshinori Kitase had previously said that the game would be a full remake of the PlayStation 2 original. That’s not the case, though; expect something more in line with Sony’s God Of War HD Collection.
