Ever since Final Fantasy X HD Remaster released, fans have been clamoring for Square Enix to release a remaster of Final Fantasy XII, and it's possible that this might happen yet.
Word initially seemed to get out last weekend during a Distant Worlds concert in Pittsburg when conductor and composer Arnie Roth mentioned that a Final Fantasy XII remake was in the works to the crowd. According to one source, Roth even motioned to the game's composer, Hitoshi Sakimoto, who seemingly confirmed it as well.
However, Roth retracted the statement in a recent Facebook post, saying that the term "remake" was used in error. Rather, he mentioned that he was confirming new concert arrangements of music from Final Fantasy XII.
The mix-up is definitely a strange one, with some theorizing that the retraction could actually be Square Enix's PR trying to sweep any premature news under the rug. Regardless, it doesn't seem like it would be too farfetched to believe that a remake — or more likely, a remaster — would be in the works, especially after the success of Final Fantasy X HD Remaster.
We'll have to wait and see if Roth's initial comments were true or if it really was a mix-up in words on his part.
Would you be excited for a remaster of Final Fantasy XII?
