Final Fantasy is one of those sagas that certainly needs no introduction, being one of the most loved ones among fans, although some chapters have attracted more interest than others.
Without taking anything away from games like the recent Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade , there are in fact some regular episodes rather mistreated among fans, even the most diehard ones.
Although therefore chapters like Final Fantasy X or even Final Fantasy IX are unanimously loved, games like Final Fantasy XIII are instead deemed unworthy of receiving remakes or remastered whatsoever. This, at least, until today.
Developed and published by Square Enix for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2009, this is the first chapter of the so-called Fabula Nova Crystallis .
This mini saga also includes Final Fantasy Type-0 (2011), FF XIII-2 (2011), and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (2014).
Net of a few groups of fans, diehard FF fans do not look favorably on the thirteenth episode, although on Reddit it seems that someone is instead clamoring for a remaster or even a simple port , complete with changes to the gameplay.
“I’m one of the few people who liked Final Fantasy XIII despite all its problems and a certain underlying linearity , “ writes a user named “Bladeocity_”.
“This is (correct me if I’m wrong) the only main FF chapter that hasn’t received a remaster or HD version yet, from the first to the twelfth, with the exception of the eleventh episode which is an MMO,” he adds.
Another player suggests a version where you can grind faster , thus leveling up without unnecessary downtime.
“RPGs are very long, and the new acceleration features are a godsend … Especially in 7, 8 and 9 … Those battles can get boring.”
Who knows if Square can really listen to the requests of these fans with very particular tastes , although at the moment there are no concrete plans to bring FFXIII back into vogue.
Speaking of other great classics, you read that a fan has “transformed” Final Fantasy X into a next-gen game , making it even more magical.
As well as FFIX , a game so appreciated to the point that another enthusiast gave birth to an unofficial remake, demonstrating the potential of a possible project .
