Final Fantasy XII not to be remade but likely remastered

August 3rd, 2015 by Geir Finnsson

Arnie Roth & Final Fantasy XII

On Saturday, Distant Worlds conductor Arnie Roth unexpectedly announced Square Enix’s plans to revisit the world of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. Speculation ran wild as the exact term he used was “remake”, but not remaster, as was to be expected of the 2006 PlayStation 2 title.

Via the Distant Worlds Facebook page, Roth has issued a statement in which he clarifies that Final Fantasy XII will not be remade, making it clear enough that a remaster similar to Final Fantasy X and X-2 is to be expected instead.

A Final Fantasy XII remaster has not yet been officially announced by Square Enix, but as Gamescom is only a few days away and the company is due to have a large presence, more information might be expected during the event.

    This is a really sloppily written headline =/ he says nothing about a remaster, just that he used the word remake incorrectly. Okay, you can infer from that, that it might mean a remaster instead, but it could equally mean nothing and have been a genuine mistake. Misleading clickbait headline, and I expected better from this site :(

  • Geir

    Thank you for your comment, and I’m sorry that it comes off as clickbaity. However, I’m basing this off on the fact that he states that the term ‘remake’ was used in error, strongly indicating that it’s supposed to mean ‘remaster’ instead.

    Had he meant to say that they weren’t re-releasing FF12 in HD, I would presume that they would word this differently, hence making it “likely”.

    Only an idiot thinks XII is being REMADE. Remastering is very possible, not a remake. At first i thought it was understood he “misused” the word “” remaster”. Not im all confused. We’ll see at Gamescom

    FF XII is definitely one of my favorite games ever, as as my first FF game ever, it hold a special place for me. I really enjoyed the FF X remaster and am definitely looking forward to this. Fingers crossed!

  • Josh Asher

    Remaster is definitely coming. Notice how they only say the term remake was made in error, not denying a remaster, because obviously that’s happening.

  • Lord Omedon

    So… no chance to have Vaan and Penelo removed and Fran and Balthier becoming the focus of the story? Well, damn!

    Seriously though, just put it on Steam and I’m happy!

    I think both of you say reasonable things but in the end I think the likely remastered part is just speculation at this point. Who knows what they will do about the game after all.
