"It's important to D2R Items note that it's priced higher than you think. It's an ideal fit for the titles want out of Square Enix. There's probably nothing to gain from the other companies that are copying it," Asano told 4gamer.Fortunately this cost won't stop Square Enix from releasing more games in this style.

The remake version of Live a Live is set to be exclusive to Nintendo Switch in July, as a remake of Dragon Quest III is currently in the process of being made. There are plenty of other games which could benefit from this design, and it will be fascinating to observe exactly what Square Enix does with HD-2D in the future. While the company has clearly invested in this style of graphics, Asano went on to explain that there's no yet a "definitive book," and it will continue to evolve from game to game.

"We haven't put together anything like the one we have. The way the plot is presented varies per title, so the HD-2D experience will be slightly different every time. In the case of Live A Live for example The atmosphere of the prehistoric scene will differ from the sci-fi scenario.

The range of expression we offer has increased due to the novel ideas we've devised. "While the cost may be prohibitive for some developers, HD-2D clearly served as a reason to buy for a lot of gamers. I hope we'll witness Square Enix find new ways to further develop the design, for a lot more games to come!
