RUMOR: Final Fantasy X Remake to Use Final Fantasy XIII’s Engine

Posted on September 24, 2011 AT 09:07am

THE BUZZ: Until now it has been assumed that the recently announced Final Fantasy X HD for PlayStation 3 and Vita would be a simple HD remaster, however this may not be the case.

According to PSTime, Final Fantasy X will not be a port, but a full remake of the game using the Final Fantasy XIII Crystal Tools Engine. Here are some details of what will be changed:

  • All that is made ​​from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
  • The sets and scenes in HD remasters CGI will implement a “filter” FFXIII Engine.
  • The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine “Luminous”.
  • Blitzball will undergo small changes.
  • Online options will be included.
  • The release date in Japan will be fiscal year 2012.

EGM’s TAKE: It is unknown just how much truth is behind these details, but if they do turn out to be real then Final Fantasy fans are in for a real treat.
