Today, Bandai Namco producer Katsuhiro Harada proposed to fans that maybe, just maybe, a Xenosaga HD Collection could happen. Katsuhire Harada tweeted this morning asking Xenosaga fans to voice their support of a HD Xenosaga collection. I myself am I HUGE fan of the series and would be super happy to get my hands on HD versions to play again.



Here's the full message Harada published today:


@Harada_TEKKEN

To Xenosaga fan community.

I do understand that you all are desiring "Xenosaga HD collection".

Also, I do appreciate all your passionate comments.

I do understand your feeling to "tweet every day until the day Xenosaga HD collection comes real".

However, what I need in order to achieve your dream, is not to have tweets from the "same person" sent to me every day.

It has been a long time since Xenosaga has been released.

It really brings back memories of those days they were developing the first Xenosaga staying up all night, when the TEKKEN Project was also staying up all night on the same floor at office.

A while back, triggered by the overseas version of Project X zone, I have conducted a research and calculated if there is a business chance for Xenosaga HD remaster.

It was a very simple research at that time. Yet, research does cost money.

And at that time, I was not able to seek business chance.

In other words, I was not able to find the necessary market size that will pay for the development fee needed to create the HD remaster.

Back then, the reactions on SNS and unique users were rather few in number.

It may be that I didn't work hard enough.

Measures such as kickstarters are as of last resort, and at any rate we will not have a chance of winning as it stands now. It will not gather people by crowdfunding without creating some kind of big movement to support it.

To be honest, I was about to give up and I'm troubled.

What I need, are the voices from many fans.

This is a little different from having "messages sent every day from the same person".

Although I do understand the deep love for the game, more than that, the cheers from as many "unique users" as possible is what is needed.

Digging further, I will not be able to believe comments like "I'll buy 100 copies!". Most companies will not believe in it.

It is not realistic for one person to tweet 100 times every day, or buy 100 copies alone.

It's more realistic if you bring 10 fans to the game (not to mention, it wouldn't mean anything by having the same person suddenly creating alternate accounts. I will be able to tell those).

What's important in these kinds of cases is the number of unique users.

It means more to have 100 people mentioning they want the game one time, rather than having one person repeating it 100 times.

A miracle would happen if several tens of thousands are gathered at the end.

Of course, involvement from the company is needed for this but...



Thoughts? Anyone else really really really want this to happen?

I want it to happen. Although, I'll need lots of time on my hands to get to it. I'll never forget the lengths of some of these cutscenes.

If they do an HD version like they did with FFX I would get it in heartbeat. I still have Xenosaga 1 and 2 never finished 1 so I never even opened 2. I tried to play it again a few months ago but my PS2 is so loud it's annoying. I'd love to have it on the Vita. I bought FFX and Persona 3 and 4 despite already having the PS2 versions and I've put a bunch of hours in to them.

Another ps2 game I would love to have on the vita are Hunter the beginning and Hunter wayward. Hmm now that I think about it there are a ton of ps2 RPGs I would buy for the vita.

People haven't experienced long cutscenes until they sit through an hours worth in Xenosaga only to fight a boss and sit through some more scenes.

I saw this right away on the weekend, and I ended up signing on twitter. These games changed my life -- I never had so many themes packed into a game from religion, to philosophy, to science, and even military/organizations. I was sad to realize that not many people dived into these games... I know the cutscenes are ridiculously long but I am pretty certain that there will be options to speed up cutscenes or skip them...

Thanks for the support though <3 <3 I hope my dream and many others will become a reality!

I been seeing a lot of posts about Xenogears. I mean don't get me wrong, I think Xenogears would be FANTASTIC if it were to get a rerelease in an HD form. But let's be honest here, it was barely made in 3D for the playstation 1 era. I think it would take a really long time for it to get a release in an HD form... Then all the FFVII fans would probably got a little crazy I think :p

It wouldn't matter besides I do agree that Xenosage needs to be HD release.

I've always wanted to try this series but never had the chance to. I did watch the anime a long time ago, although I have zero recollection of it. I don't even remember if it was good or bad.

If this HD collection happens, I'll definitely get it.
