Default General News - Square-Enix RPGs that need to be remade

Ginger Prime suggests seven Square-Enix RPGs that should be remade:

Top 7

loading…


Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Trials of Mana Remake, and now Nier remake, what other RPGs do we want to see Square-Enix remake? For me, what I thought would be a top 5 list, turned into a top 7 list of RPGs that I would love to see make a return.
More information.

Square Enix owns rights to Anachronox.
Till that one is remade or a sequel spawned, I care not about other whatnot.

That's a pretty solid wish- list, and I agree with them all for various reasons.

Skies of Arcadia (Dreamcast-2001)
Grandia 2 (Dreamcast-2000)

A Grandia 2 remaster for the PC exists already.

My thoughts exactly.

I have zero faith in SquareEnix nowadays so no don't remake any more older games.

I can imagine it already more games released in parts instead of the full experience. To clarify since the new generation consoles and the departure of the original talent they have become another BioWare.

Still remember the excuses for why the latest Final Fantasy games were delayed so much, and the focus on mobile phone games for a few years

There's a big difference between a remake and remaster.
But still, thanks for alerting me to the PC port. I'll probably pick it up on sale sometime.

I would like to see a new final fantasy tactics.

I really enjoyed the FF7 remake.

Plus one on this… even though I've already played it on the PS1, PS Vita and my iPad. But an actually remade (vs just ported) version would be cool.

A remake of Chrono Trigger could be cool if done right. That's one of the few JRPGs I really liked. Final Fantasy VI was good too.

I also liked a game called Vagrant Story that Square released on the PS1.

I loved Vagrant Story. The script and storytelling was very atypical for JRPGs, then or since. I seem to recall that the combat was a weak point. It is one of the few JRPGs I'd have any interest in a remake (not a remaster) of.
