Final Fantasy X HD is a remaster, not a remake

Despite the recent popularity of HD remasters, there were hopes that Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X HD, announced at TGS last year, would be a complete remake of the popular JRPG and not a simple HD upgrade.

Alas, it looks to be the latter; Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto has confirmed that the game is more of remaster than an outright remake.

Expect this to be more in line with the recent sweep of HD updates then, albeit this one’s heading to Vita too. When we’ll actually see it is another matter entirely.
