Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Release Date confirmed and PS3/Vita Bundle detailed
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?
