A rumor has popped up today that the version of Final Fantasy X set to appear at some point on PS3 and PS Vita may be more than the mere graphics and sound remastering we previously assumed. Upon closer scrutiny, though, it appears this rumor may actually come down to sketchy translation.
Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase supposedly told German magazine M! Games that the title would be a full-on remake, though details are notably hard to come by. Following a number of blogs through to their sources will lead eventually to several German sites, and Playstation Life Style notes "Kitase used the German term “neuauflage” to describe the game, which can be translated to mean “remake,” “new edition,” or “new issue.”
If that's all we're going by here, then I daresay a few people have jumped the gun; a "new edition" or "new issue" is hardly the same as a remake, so it looks like we'll have to wait for official word (in English!) before we jump to any more conclusions.
