Written by the man who decided that Aeris should die (seriously).
Announced via Jump Magazine, Square Enix has revealed that the upcoming HD remaster of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 will feature a brand new 30 minute episode written by game scenario writer Kazushige Nojima.
Why is that name important? Because Nojima wrote all the most affecting games in the series, including Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII (where he put forth the idea that one of the two female leads – Tifa and Aeris – should die), Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and even Final Fantasy Versus XIII. He also wrote the Kingdom Hearts games, before leaving Square Enix in 2003, and was responsible for creating the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology and the story of the CG movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
As of now, we’ll have to wait and see what this new episode is about. Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster will be available together for PS3 later this year and separately for the PlayStation Vita.
