Latest FFX/X-2 Remaster Revelation

When Siliconera spoke to Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase he said Square Enix partnered with an outside developer to create Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The company that handled the enhanced port was Virtuos, a Shanghai studio that worked on a couple of Ben 10 Ultimate Alien games and Wii ports of 2K sports games. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was the studio’s biggest project to date.

Now that is a suprising revelation as some of you will already be aware of since Siliconera wrote about the story earlier today. Not only myself, but many people have been under the assumption that the FFX/X-2 remaster was an internal job. With recent horror stories regarding out-sourcing (Aliens: Colonial Marines is one that still cuts deep) of games, its no wonder some are left worrying. To be honest though this is looking like a really well done remaster and with how long it has taken, it should be safe to assume it will be fine.

It does beg the question though - with most assuming they've been working on this remaster themselves, what have Square really been working on? Just lightning Returns & FFV? I guess we'll see

  1. It is hard to believe that a company like Square (who do not release many games per year) need to out source. But from what I have seen it looks like a good job :)
