Square Enix’s 1st Production Department is responsible for mainline titles of the Final Fantasy series, and their new project happens to be a HD remastering (not a remake) of the PlayStation 2 game Final Fantasy X. Originally announced by PD1 super-producer Shinji Hashimoto at Tokyo Game Show last fall, the title will be for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with enhanced visuals.
The department’s official Twitter left a brief message to fans today stating that “[Final Fantasy] X is next…”
Previously Yoshinori Kitase has commented that the game was currently under development, but we’ve also heard comments that it would be a while before we saw any in-game screenshots or footage. Which leaves us wondering when exactly Square Enix will choose to debut information and media on the game, though our first bet is through the typical Famitsu and Jump cycles.
Update: A bit of a false alarm on this folks! The 1st Production Department twitter has been counting down the release to Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy in Japan via roman numerals. When they said “X is next…” they were actually referring to ten days left before Theatrythym is released!
