Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster - oprainfall
It seems that it is not just the graphics that are getting enhanced in Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The musical score will be upgraded as well.

In Final Fantasy X HD, a total of 60 tracks—about two-thirds of the soundtrack—have been rearranged and remastered. Additionally, in Final Fantasy X-2 HD, the sound source has been added so you can now hear the music much more clearly.

The soundtrack staff for the HD Remasters include musical director/arranger Masashi Hamauzu, musical director Keiji Kawamori, arrangement by Junya Nakano, Tsutomu Narita and Hirosato Noda, and lead composition supervisor Nobuo Uematsu.

There is also a 30-minute audio drama that was written by Kazushige Nojima specifically for this remake. Square Enix has released an English-language preview of it that you can check out below.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will also feature trophies, which you can acquire by completing the required tasks. For example, there’s “Mega Strike” in FFX HD, which you can get by dealing 99,999 damage in a single attack, and “Discern TPO” in FFX-2 HD, which you earn by changing Dresspheres for all three playable character during a single battle.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be released sometime in 2013 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com and Amazon.ca.

Thanks to staff translator Will Whitehurst for the translation.

    OMG I was so scared they wouldn’t have Uematsu involved in remastering his own songs

    OMG THEY SAID HIS NAME o.o those clips make me even more curious about the 30 minute clip especially from what Tidus said

    Shame they didn’t address some of the more “questionable” voice acting scenes…

    I realize that Final Fantasy X/X2 were not my favorite games at the time and I only played them once through right when they were released, and that at this point I’ve forgotten a lot of the stories in both, (especially in X-2). With improved graphics and music, and finally getting to play the international versions of both, I find myself looking forward to this compilation a whole lot more then I expected. Now to decide whether this goes on my PS3, Vita, or both. I really wish this game had a crossbuy option.
