    1. Yea their not gna do much work to it. Just upscale a little bit, that’s expected. If they said remake now that’s a different story lol

        1. Yea its just a way to justify raising the price a bit usually. If it was not “remastered” they would have to sell it cheaper. Once you put that “remaster” sticker you can charge a bit higher or make it seem like there’s new features etc. just marketing. Fairly common practice among lots of developers and it will keep on happening with the newer consoles.

      1. Square lost the original source code to FFVIII so it’s more of a remake than you might think.
        Reverse engineering and remake. That’s also why the character models look terrible.
