Final Fantasy XII 12 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Social media erupted last night during a Distant Worlds concert featuring Final Fantasy XII composer Hitoshi Sakimoto. Speaking during the event introductions, conductor Arnie Roth said that a "remake" of the aforementioned PlayStation 2 favourite is on the way – although it's likely that he meant to say "remaster".

Indeed, this is something that publisher Square Enix has been hinting at for a while. "Actually, not limited to just Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, we're currently thinking of setting [a way] to have other past Final Fantasy titles playable on the PS4," producer Shinji Hashimoto said late last year. "However, this does not mean that we can simply transfer [these titles] to the PS4, so, as content holders, we must prepare a way to steadily have them available to play on the PS4."

We're not entirely sure how privy Roth would be to the Japanese company's private plans, but a Final Fantasy XII remaster does make a lot of sense. We'll try to chase up some kind of comment from Square Enix, but if this is real, you should probably expect some kind of announcement at the Tokyo Game Show later in the year.
