Kurt’s minute this morning about Final Fantasy VIII is true, it was a slightest re-released Final Fantasy title, yet why? The answer is elementary yet deep, Square Enix mislaid many of a source formula for it. Back in a ‘90s diversion refuge wasn’t unequivocally being suspicion about most and sadly this has led to all sorts of games being mislaid to time, Panzer Dragoon Saga being one of them.
Square, however, seem to have been quite means during this, even starting with Final Fantasy VII. The PC pier of this was notoriously ropey and this stems from a fact that a source formula given to a California group wasn’t a final version, it was an comparison build riddled with bugs not benefaction in a PlayStation sell copy, contained scenes that had been cut, and was blank things from a final one; they had to literally cobble it together. The final chronicle they eventually got using also wasn’t saved. The 2013 complicated ports had to be retreat engineered.
What’s rather infuriating as good is a backgrounds and CGI cut scenes for VII to IX were all pre-rendered during a high fortitude and afterwards dense them down to fit a PS1, after that a higher-grade things seems to have been mostly binned. We could have had poetic high-res versions years ago. Final Fantasy IX seems to have fared improved with a impression models being aloft res in a new PlayStation 4 port, yet a backgrounds are grainy and pixelated as a high-res backgrounds are prolonged given gone.
Back to VIII yet and it’s sadly a box that there isn’t an simply unstable source formula set left, so we’re doubtful to see a remaster as they would radically be starting from blemish with it. As for a remake, given a cost of VII we consider it’s unlikely.
