Kurt’s minute this morning about Ultimate Fantasy VIII is true, it was a slightest re-released Ultimate Fantasy title, however why? The respond is easy however deep, Sq. Enix unnoticed many of a supply formula for it. Again within a ‘90s distraction refuge wasn’t indeed being deliberate a lot and sadly this has led to all forms of video games being unnoticed to time, Panzer Dragoon Saga being one among them.
Sq., nevertheless, seem to have been significantly means during this, even commencement with Ultimate Fantasy VII. The PC pier of this was notoriously ropey and this stems from a law that a supply formula given to a California organisation wasn’t a ultimate model, it was an comparison erect riddled with bugs not stream within a PlayStation sell copy, contained scenes that had been lower, and was lacking issues from a ultimate one; they indispensable to indeed cobble it collectively. The ultimate indication they finally bought handling additionally wasn’t saved. The 2013 select ports indispensable to be retreat engineered.
What’s extremely infuriating as scrupulously is a backgrounds and CGI reduce scenes for VII to IX have been all pre-rendered during a extreme preference after that dense them down to fit a PS1, after that a higher-grade things appears to have been mostly binned. We might have had flattering high-res variations years in a past. Ultimate Fantasy IX appears to have fared aloft with a impression fashions being larger res within a latest PlayStation 4 port, however a backgrounds are grainy and pixelated given a high-res backgrounds are extensive given gone.
Again to VIII nonetheless and it’s sadly a box that there isn’t an simply transportable supply formula set left, so we’re doubtful to see a remaster as they’d fundamentally be trimming from blemish with it. As for a remake, given a cost of VII we trust it’s unlikely.
