Square Enix has confirmed that two remastered versions of Final Fantasy I and FFII are heading to the PSP in America, with a subsequent Euro release still to be confirmed.
Final Fantasy I releases in the US on June 26, followed by FF II on July 24. Superb news for all fans of the series.
Strangely (and ominously, for Sony) Square Enix's Motomu Toriyama has apparently gone on record to confirm that there are more formats planned in as part of the forthcoming Final Fantasy XIII project – which to date has only had versions confirmed for PlayStation 3 and for mobile.
According to a report on German website, Gamefront (and allowing for a dodgy Google translatoriser), while so far, Final Fantasy Agito XIII (mobile phone), Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) and Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3) have been announced, Final Fantasy XIII is not exclusive to PlayStation3 and mobile phone.
"How many parts of the RPG series are to appear in the long run, is uncertain - a diagram in a Square Enix business report suggested that Final Fantasy XIII was to cover more than three titles… and Toriyama called the entire project 'enormous'".
This begs the question – is Final Fantasy XIII coming to 360 and Wii at some point in the future? SPOnG has put in a call to Square Enix this morning to find out more, so stay tuned for updates.
