Final Fantasy X HD still early in development

Unknown if Kitase is directly involved.

Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase spoke briefly on the upcoming PlayStation 3 and PS Vita remake of Final Fantasy X during an interview with the latest issue of German magazine M! Games.

The game is still very early in development, according to Kitase. Though it is unclear whether he is involved in that development, he thinks he will work on it because he will “ensure that the remake will have the same quality as the original.”

It’s worth noting Kitase uses the German word “neuauflage,” which can be directly translated to “remake,” “new edition,” or “new issue.”

In September, it was rumored the update would be a complete remake, running on the Final Fantasy XIII engine, with character design, stage elements, and aeons all being recreated from scratch. Square Enix has yet to confirm or deny these rumors.

Thanks, (and Tony).
