Last week, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 4. During a Sony Computer Entertainment press conference in China, producer Shinji Hashimoto had a little more to share about the Final Fantasy series moving onto PlayStation 4.
During the interview, Hashimoto was asked whether other titles besides Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be available in the Chinese market.
“Actually, not limited to just X/X-2, we’re currently thinking of setting [a way] to have other past Final Fantasy titles playable on the PS4,” said Hashimoto. “Most of our Final Fantasy assets go up until the PS3, while most of the world has rapidly been shifting towards the PS4.”
“And in China’s case, they’re practically starting with the PlayStation 4 as their main console,” he continued.” “For this reason, we’re keeping in mind the sense of crisis of not being able to play these masterpiece titles.”
“However, this does not mean that we can simply transfer [these titles] to PS4, so as content holders, we must prepare a way to steadily have them available to play on PS4.”
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will release in Japan in May 2015 for PlayStation 4. Square Enix announced that it will also release in North America and Europe in Spring 2015.
