Final Fantasy X remake graphics insight

By Alan Ng - Jan 4, 2012

While a considerable debate is brewing amongst excited Final Fantasy fans on whether the upcoming Final Fantasy X remake will actually be a proper remake and not a HD remaster, we have a video to show you now which could give an indication on how updated visuals may look on the PS3 and PS Vita.

As you know, Final Fantasy X launched as PS2 game back in 2001 and it is a game that is held in high esteem with many fans who believe that it is one of the best games in the entire series.

A remake is set to appear on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2012, but in true Square-Enix fashion, there is no indication on when the game will be coming out. So far we have had no teasers from Square-Enix on the graphics quality for the new game, but we did tell you just a few days ago that the game is thought to be much more than a HD remake.

We have a video to show you, which reveals some 1080p HD gameplay from Final Fantasy X, but played on the PC with a PS2 emulator, courtesy of TQCast. Obviously this may or may not be an accurate representation on how the remake will end up looking, but it does give you an insight on how the original graphics can be improved when upscaled to a higher resolution. The graphics shown in the video below are obviously far more impressive than the original PS2 graphics, but PS3 fans will be hoping that the game includes even more impressive visuals seen here, especially if Square-Enix are planning to add more content to the game from the original.

As for PS Vita owners though, we would be very impressed if Sony delivered a version for Vita owners that delivers graphics seen in the video below. Character models are lovely and crisp, and we feel that there’s more chance of the PS Vita version of the game getting a ‘HD’ upscale, compared to the PS3 version which hopefully will include even better visuals.

Take a look at the video below and let us know your thoughts on it. Would you be satisfied if the remake looks like this or do you expect more from Square-Enix?
