Detailed in Square Enix’s latest annual report, the publisher has announced plans to revisit and “revitalize existing IPs” for current generation hardware.
Tucked nice and neatly under the section “The Way Forward,” Square Enix has produced plans to “take an IP developed for earlier generations of game consoles and recreate it for the latest console.” Additionally, they stressed that they’d be looking into bringing some of those older titles to smart devices as well.
The company also states that they’re looking into VR and “other new platforms” to bring their existing content to, as they want “longtime fans to relish reliving past experiences with a freshness that only the latest in technology can provide, while at the same time have new customers enjoy the IP as though it were brand new.”
Back in June of this year, Square Enix announced that the PlayStation and JRPG classic of Final Fantasy VII is getting a remake, coming first to PlayStation 4.
