Square Enix has confirmed that it will release Final Fantasy
and Final Fantasy 2
for the PSP in Europe early next year.
We know, we know, we're last in line... again. Final Fantasy
has been available in the States for several months already. Still, better late than never, eh? Especially since Square tells us these are "the definitive versions of the games that established the biggest RPG brand in the world."
The PSP versions of the games will feature re-done graphics and character art, all-new dungeons, full 16:9 widescreen visuals and, for good measure, an updated camera angle.
Square's president and chief executive officer, John Yamamoto, said, ?Final Fantasy
and Final Fantasy II
are the foundations of the Square Enix success story. They are the first two steps in the long and distinguished history of the Final Fantasy
Franchise. With these beautiful new versions, fans can now experience the origins of Fiinal Fantasy wherever they go.?
It's been good news all round for handheld Final Fantasy
fans in Europe this week, with Square having confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
is heading for the DS over here
