FINAL FANTASY X is back—in HD! First released for the PlayStation®2 system in 2001, and widely acclaimed for its moving story and spectacular graphics, FINAL FANTASY X has now returned in HD for the PlayStation®Vita system. Characters, monsters, and environments have been fine-tuned in HD detail, providing a richer, deeper FINAL FANTASY visual experience. Other new features in the HD version include remastered/rearranged BGM, International Edition content, trophies, and Cross-Save functionality.
One of the most anticipated titles of this year, Final Fantasy X HD Remaster was finally released a few weeks ago. I picked it up on PS Vita, and have been playing it ever since then!
Final Fantasy X (PS2) holds a special place in my heart: I played it way too much when I was unemployed back in 2002, and I completely conquered that game in around 160 hours!
Is the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster worth your time and money? When compared to other HD re-releases, how does the game rank so many years after its original release? Long story short, this game is the best HD remaster I’ve played, and this 13-years old game might even the best RPG available in the PS Vita library!
Yea, I love Final Fantasy X THAT much !!!!!
We FINALLY got information regarding the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Release on the official Playstation Blog from Sakura Minamida, Senior Product Manager of Square Enix.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will be available on March 18, 2014 (March 21 in EU), and will be released on PS3 Retail disc, PS Vita cartridges or on the PSN.
The PS3 version will feature both Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy X-2 HD on the same disc, while the PS Vita will receive only Final Fantasy X HD on a cartridge and will include a code voucher to download X-2 HD from the PSN. I would have preferred to have X-2 on a separate cartridge, because as you all know, Vita memory card size is relatively limited, and I’m pretty sure that game will be a few GB.
The price will be $39.99 for the PS3 version, and the Vita version will be sold separately for another $39.99. That means that while those games will feature Cross-Save between the PS3 and Vita, they will not be Cross-Buy.
There is also a new “Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Collector’s Edition” available only from Square Enix Store, which can be purchased here. Check the image below to have an idea of what this special edition contains:
This is one of the releases I’ve been looking forward to for a while, but with both not being Cross-Buy, I might end up picking only the Vita version.
Would you have preferred to have both games when purchasing the PS3 version? What are your thoughts about those announcements?
Square-Enix recently announced that a few of their PS2 masterpieces would get HD Remasters for both the PS3 and PS Vita. Each remastered game (Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts: Chains of Memories) will feature upgraded visuals, a few new features and bosses, and their own trophy list!
I searched the web to sum up what is known about those titles and compiled the data in this post, which is meant to be an extension of what Eddie wrote a few weeks ago.
The long awaited HD remake is just around the corner. Final Fantasy X and X-2 will be coming out for the PS3 and Vita this year. Square Enix has confirmed that the PS3 version will include both games and will cost $40. The PS Vita versions will be sold individually however prices have not been suggested as of yet.
The best part is that the versions released will be the International versions which were not released in North America. This will add story, sphere grids and super hard bosses known as Dark Aeons to FFX.
SE has stated that they are 70% complete on this project and that they are unsure if the special end mission that was released for FFX-2 will be included as that was a separate project in Japan. Either way, I can see hundreds of hours being put into these games for myself.
