During a live radio broadcast also shared on YouTube, Tomoya Asano (Octopath Traveler Producer, Triangle Strategy, Bravely Default), Takashi Tokita (Live A Live Producer) and Yasuaki Arai (Triangle Strtegy Producer) talked about plans Square Enix about the new HD-2D Remake Games.
Tomoya Asano He stated, “Our boss ordered us to make and reproduce more HD-2D titles, so we discussed all the possible titles. We made a list of games that were most suitable for HD-2D, and then left out the games. It was dismissed as Mahjong (laughs) and we made some suggestions to the president.” In particular, we included all the Square and Enix games released in Super Famicom that could have been replayed in HD-2D. The first game we picked was Live A Live. The second was Actraiser.”
Actraiser Renaissance is released on September 24, 2021, while Live A Live will arrive on July 22, 2022. At the moment we don’t have information on which games could receive the HD-2D treatment.
If you could make some requests, what remastered games would you like to see in HD-2D style? Do you like the fact that Square Enix works hard to make (also) this type of video game?
