Grasshopper Manufacture is reportedly working on remastering Killer 7, and Flower, Sun, and Rain.
Grasshopper Manufacture recently hosted an event in Japan where the developer reportedly announced remasters for two of its classic games: Killer 7, and Flower, Sun, and Rain.
The information mainly comes by way of Twitter user @steelballrunner who attended the event. According to them, no release window was shared for either remaster, only that they're coming "in the future."
Yes, and FSR remaster in the future. No definite date but "in the future"

Designer Goichi "Suda51" Suda said, according to this report, that he knows how hard it can be to access older games on modern systems, hence the decision to go along with these remasters.
The event was celebrating Grasshopper Manufacture's 20th anniversary, but little else is known about it. It did seem like it was a decent party, though, judging by the studio's Twitter feed.
Flower, Sun, and Rain was released on PS2 in 2001, before getting a Nintendo DS port seven years later. It's not as well-remembered as Killer 7, which came out on the PS2 and GameCube in 2005.
No platforms for these remasters were announced, but considering the nature of the announcement, it may be a while before we get an official reveal from Grasshopper with more details.
