At this moment, we are already due to get remakes or re-releases of Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 12 with Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age respectively. However, that may not be the end of Square Enix reliving its glorious past- according to Takashi Katano, the director of Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age, if the company were to re-release those games on modern systems, it would go ahead and remake them fully, rather than just remastering them.
“Final Fantasy 12 is a PS2 title, and you look at the other titles in the series and technologically anything before the PS2 era is going to be quite difficult to do a modern remaster of to a suitable level of quality,” Katano told IB Times. “That means [a future re-release] is far more likely to be a remake.”
Final Fantasy 6 and 9 are widely considered by fans to be among the greatest games in the series- so seeing full fledged remakes of either of those games would definitely generate and create a lot of excitement and hype among series fans, that’s for sure.
