Square Enix Unsurprisingly Considering More Remasters After Recent Successes; A Shareholder Specifically Wants Xenogears

Square Enix recently posted a summation of their 43rd Annual General Shareholders Meeting comprising various questions and responses about the company’s ongoing efforts.

One such exchange that has received considerable attention regards how Square Enix is considering additional remasters following the notable success of the six Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters.

The full exchange is quoted below:

Question 6 –  “Final Fantasy I-VI Pixel Remaster” has been well received. Are there plans to remaster other past titles? Personally, I would like to play “Xenogears.”

Answer 6 – We will refrain from sharing information about new titles, but we are considering various ideas within the Company and hope that you will look forward to forthcoming announcements.

Of course, nothing specific was stated regarding what fans can expect from future remasters, but the notion is exciting, nonetheless. Plus, at least one shareholder is hoping for a Xenogears remaster, which countless fans worldwide also hope for. Will it actually happen, though? I’m doubtful, yet I’m willing to be surprised.

Thanks to VGC for catching this news.

Xenogears is a PlayStation 1 JRPG that is often considered masterclass due to its intricately woven narrative and compelling setting. Many fans have been clamoring for it to receive an HD-2D remake as it has remained largely neglected aside from a PlayStation 3 PSN release.

I recently began playing Xenogears for the first time and am looking forward to experiencing it in full. So far, its opening has stunned me the most, looking quite incredible for a late 90s PS1 title.

In case you missed it, the conclusion of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC has hinted toward the idea of Xenosaga connectivity.
