Katsuhiro Harada Teases the Possibility for Both Xenosaga and Ace Combat Collections

xenosaga 3 06-29-14-1

HD re-releases and collections are all the rage these days, a boon to mid tier and larger developers to round up lots of older titles from a bygone era and just re-configure them for newer hardware, all to the adoration of their fans and their money.

We’ve learned that Bandai Namco producer Katsuhiro Harada was teasing the possibility of an HD remake and or collection for both Xenosaga and Ace Combat, over on his Twitter:

Actually, I haven’t played it yet (laughs), though I’ve played up to Ace 5. I haven’t had much time recently… though I’ve been wanting to play Ace 4 for awhile.

I’d want to play an HD Ace 4 right away. Maybe I should go plead with Ace’s producer?

Well, for today’s broadcast, I will be pestering Kono-P [Kazutoki Kono, Producer of the Ace Combat Series] for a remake (laughs). Not really, but I really want it personally.

He continued, now moving onto the Xenosaga series:

Of course remake talk calls for more remake talk, and another fan asked about a remake collection for the Xenosaga series:

Xeno! We have the rights and we could outsource it, so it’s not like it’s stuck, but if there was a remake I’d want the original staff to work on it.

Would you guys really buy Xenosaga if it was released?

It’s not impossible, but obviously we have a responsibility to bring in revenue, so I’m surveying the extent of the demand for it.

I dunno about you, but I’d easily throw down for a Xenosaga HD collection on Playstation 3. What game or series would you like to see redone in HD?

    I would buy a remake or collection of xenogears in a heartbeat, but seeing as my launch 60 gig ps3 kicked the bucket this year I would want them on ps4.

    yeah those used 100+ dollar ps3’s are too much.

    anyway a xeno hd remake would be awesome.
