Oops! It looks like a remake for Final Fantasy XII isn’t currently in the works, so you can save your hard-earned gil for now.
Arnie Roth, producer and music director of the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy concert tour, unfortunately claimed the project was underway at one of the performances in Pittsburg. That was apparently incorrect information, so Roth released this statement to remedy the confusion:
In response to comments posted by fans, I want to rectify a statement made from the stage Saturday night at our Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY concert in Pittsburgh.
Following conversations with composer Hitoshi Sakimoto regarding new concert arrangements of music from FINAL FANTASY XII, regrettably, the term ‘remake’ was used in error during one of the announcements that took place from the stage during the concert.
We sincerely regret any confusion this has caused.
Producer and Music Director
Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY”
You can also peep the announcement being made in the video above, as enthused fans erupt with excitement. The wording of the statement is also suspect. If Roth used the term “remake” in error, what did he actually mean? Something smells fishy. I don’t believe many would be surprised if this title ever came to fruition. Square Enix has been remaking and remastering a lot of the older entries in the franchise recently. I guess we’ll just have to do with the Final Fantasy VII remake for now.
Do you believe this is a simple goof by Roth? Would you even want this title? Let us know in the comments section below.
