Square Enix Confirms PSP Final Fantasy Remakes

Square Enix has officially announced the latest Final Fantasy remake for handheld game consoles, with remastered versions of both the original Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II scheduled to ship exclusively for the PSP in North America this summer.

Square Enix Confirms PSP  Final Fantasy  Remakes With a 20 year heritage, the Final Fantasy series remains one of the most successful and highly regarded series of console role-playing games, with versions on 28 different platforms, as well as 2 CG animated films and 29 music soundtracks released worldwide.

The original Final Fantasy, first released for the NES in 1987, will be released for the PSP on June 26, with the remade sequel appearing a month later on July 24. Both games have been the subject of various re-mastering efforts over the years, with the most recent coming via Final Fantasy I & 2: Dawn of Souls for the Game Boy Advance.

Square Enix notes that these latest titles, which have been dubbed “anniversary editions,” will include “entirely new content,” such as new character art, updated graphics, new dungeons, full 16:9 widescreen presentation, and an updated camera.

“So much has changed within the video game industry since the first console was launched, and Final Fantasy has always pushed the envelope, creating the most advanced graphics and immersive storylines possible,” said Executive Producer Shinji Hashimoto “It is amazing to see how far Final Fantasy has come in the past twenty years, and we cannot wait to continue bringing fans more Final Fantasy titles in the next twenty years.”

final fantasy remakes for psp are just stupid ports with some graphical improvements. nothing special.
If they wanted to make a great remake they should have looked at Tales of Destiny Remake. now that's a good remake that still uses 2d sprites mixed with one of the best battle systems >_<
