Just like Live A Live which has been announced for a return next summer, Square Enix is reportedly working on HD-2D remakes of the Super Famicom’s flagship games.
Good news for the nostalgic, less good for the others: Square Enix has not finished its series of HD-2D remakes of its flagship games from the 80s. In an interview with Famitsuthe studio developers indicate that President Yosuka Matsuda wants even more revivals. Tomoya Asano explains thus:
The president ordered us to use HD-2D more, so we decided to think about remakes of past titles. So we made a list of possible titles and rthought about which ones could be made in HD-2D, then we presented them to the president […] There were the titles published by Square and Enix for the Super Famicom. We’ve lined them all up and presented Live A Live as the most suitable. Second place went to ActRaiser.
During the last Nintendo Direct, we were also able to discover the remake of Live A Live for the summer of 2022. The next game to take the direction of this HD-2D aesthetic is Triangle Strategy, which is an original game. But Square Enix above all has a huge pool of games that could be brought up to date, as we have seen with the FF Pixel Remaster series.
Other titles could therefore be revealed in the years to come…
