At the time of the Pixel Remasters’ original release, Final Fantasy brand manager Yoshinori Kitase commented: “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.”
Final Fantasy’s original creator, Hironobu Sakaguchi, also provided a statement: “When working on the originals, I didn’t think that the Final Fantasy series would be remastered almost 35 years later,” he said.
“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.”
