Yoshinori Kitase, producer of the Final Fantasy series, has revealed that Final Fantasy X /X-2 HD Remaster is “approaching the final stage of development,” however the team is still unable to nail down a release date.

“Just getting an SD quality game and turning it into HD isn’t something we’d settle for,” he told gamer.ne.jp (via Siliconera). “The production is based on the memories of those who’ve played the game 10 years ago, but we’re taking our time to develop it so we can make sure that the new HD look and its beautiful form won’t ruin those memories.”

The team has “modified the characters and polygons, one by one” and “revised the textures.”

“Not everything has changed, but the main character expressions in cut-scenes have been altered. However, simply adding polygons can subtly change impressions, so we’re constantly checking while revising to make sure we don’t ruin the image of Tidus and Yuna for the fans,” Kitase concluded.

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is due to release later this year for PlayStation 3 and Vita.
