    Default Is there hope for a remake/updated port?

    So FFXII is still the only Final Fantasy to not receive an update to another console. The only improvement, the International Zodiac Job System, was a Japanese only release (the bastards).

    With FFXII two generations behind, when will we see a remake of it? I for one would love to experience Ivalice in stunning PS4 graphics. I recently started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition for the PS4, and it is so much more vivid than the Xbox360 version I played before. Real improvements could be made to make Ivalice come alive.

    So, what are the chances? Is there enough demand for a remake?

    I'm still hoping.

    It's not gonna be much more stunning than it is on an emulator, though.

    Considering FFIX took...

    ...

    16 years to get a remake, we've got at least 6 more years until you should give up hope.

    From what I've read in interviews, part of it comes down to sales but the other part is whether the director wants to do it. VII and X happened because Kitase likes to dwell on his better days but in XII's case, we would have to talk with Ito or Akitiko Kawazu to get it to happen. Kawazu is busy working on a few projects for the SaGa franchises (his real baby) 25th Anniversary and Ito has been MIA since XII IZJS was released. His last time being mentioned on working was a designer for some browser based game back in 2008 and the developers of Dissidia asking him whether they got Gabranth and Vaan right for the game.

    Chances are, the game will see a Steam Release before an actual HD Remake and I doubt IZJS will be there first choice for that.

    Yeah, my feelings exactly.

    I still have my PS2 copy and a working PS2 now. It's on my list of games to play but it's a very long smurfing list.
