We’ve talked heavily here about how much we want a remake of the Xenosaga series, but what of Xenogears? The game came out in February of 1998 and was actually going to be Final Fantasy VII, initially. The music was composed by famed composer Yasunori Mitsuda, who did the music for the first Xenosaga game and was involved with Xenoblade 1 and 2, and of course, composed the music for Xenogears.

Mitsuda is helming a concert to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Xenogears titled “Beginning of the End”. The concert will take place at the Maihama Amphitheater in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, close to Tokyo on April 7 and 8. As everyone does these days, Mitsuda took to Twitter, acknowledging hope that a remake will be done for the classic RPG.

“I’m happy and proud to say that the game is still being loved by many fans from Japan and abroad, and some are hoping for a remake to be made.”

Xenogears is beloved by many and is even considered by some to be the best RPG of all time, despite the rushed second disc. Perhaps a remake would be the chance to rectify this? It’s the perfect opportunity to do so. A remake and/or remaster of Xenogears would be a dream come true for many fans.

If the concert does well enough in Japan, hopefully it will come to America. The game is still loved in the West, and a concert here will be successful.

Mitsuda is a huge name in the gaming industry, so an acknowledgment from him regarding a Xenogears remake and Square Enix remaking so many old games as of late may give them a push to ultimately go through with the project.
