Looks like we can expect some classic Japanese video game properties to be remade for the next generation, as Forever Entertainment has announced that they have signed a deal with Square Enix to create multiple game remakes of their IPs — which could include some classic JRPGs and may be made in a similar way to Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
While it hasn’t been revealed what exactly these multiple game remakes are, the company has promised to announce the project when the worldwide marketing campaign goes into effect, The games will contain new visuals and graphical enhancements, but will retain the same kind of gameplay and mechanics that have made them beloved by fans. Forever Entertainment already has previous experience with making remakes of classic properties — specifically the Panzer Dragon: Remake that was released last year for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC, and they’ll also be releasing Panzer Dragon Zwei: Remake in 2021. With those in the company’s resume, Square Enix has the confidence and motivation to allow them to make remakes based on their properties for them.
With the deal, Forever Entertainment will receive 50 percent of sales for each copy of the future remake that’s sold through the consoles it is released in. We’ll just have to wait and see what those games are when details are released.
Speaking of Square Enix and remakes, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is getting a PS5 release with FF7R Intergrade this coming June.
