FINAL FANTASY PIXEL REMASTER | Promotional Trailer
According to the “Father of Final Fantasy” Hironobu Sakaguchi:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“When working on the originals, I didn’t think that the FINAL FANTASY series would be remastered almost 35 years later. The video game industry had only just been established. So, with nobody else leading the way, we had to keep moving forward at the front line. I remember how we went through a lot of trial and error at that time. I’m very happy and grateful that Final Fantasy has continued for such a long period of time.”[/testimonials]
Final Fantasy Brand Manager and Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase adds:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“Every time a new Final Fantasy title is released, I think there are those who want to return to the origin of the series. This project began because we wanted to create a convenient way for fans and new players to enjoy these original classics, with consistent graphics and a unified user interface.”[/testimonials]
Finally, series composer Nobuo Uematsu stated the following:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“We are rearranging all the music tracks this time. One of the first ideas I had was to make sure to stay faithful to the originals, but of course I couldn’t just leave it in the original 3-tone sound, so they have been built up into full-scale tracks. I have made sure that the original atmosphere has been retained and each can be listened to as separate music pieces, so that fans can enjoy.”[/testimonials]
