In the inaugural episode of Asano Team Development Room Radio, Square Enix producer Tomoya Asano shared some insight about the company’s outlook on HD-2D remakes (Thanks, Famitsu). According to Asano, demand to remake games in the HD-2D style is high thanks to Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda. Matsuda wants more future projects to use the HD-2D technology including remakes of classic games. As a result, the Live A Live HD-2D remake is one of the new games under this initiative. Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake is currently in development and the most recent HD-2D project, Triangle Strategy, releases March 4th. There will be plenty of HD-2D games to come at this rate.
