With the release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster fast approaching, it’s no surprise that we’ve been hearing a lot about it. Most recently, we found out about the music upgrade, and got a preview of the audio drama, but we’ve also been seeing plenty of trailers and screenshots for the game, as well. Now, after hearing all the news about remastered music and graphics, we finally get a chance to see just how much work has gone into the HD update of the two games.

Square Enix has released a video that gives us a side-by-side comparison of the remastered HD version of Final Fantasy X with the original version on the PlayStation 2. The video features some battle sequences first from the original and then from the HD version, and the difference is pretty clear. Not only do the graphics look much better, but it’s immediately apparent that a ton of work has gone into updating the soundtrack.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is set for release sometime later this year on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. As the title suggests, the collection will feature remastered versions of both Final Fantasy X and the game’s sequel, Final Fantasy X-2, and, if the recent comparison video is any indication, it looks like it’s shaping up to be a worthwhile HD collection.

Stay tuned for more Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster news!

    Well this isn’t a side-by-side comparison video so… that would literally show footage and the same time from both games. That being said, the difference is very noticeable anyway! I may get this in the future as X and X-2 are a couple of the few FF games I haven’t played… although I played a demo for X-2 and wasn’t the greatest fan. If this was like $20-25 and just X, I’d preorder it haha.

      I like to think it’s $60 for X, and discounting $20 for having to take X-2.

    Looking good. I’m not a friend of FF10, don’t plan on buying this, but it seems very well done, which is extremely unusual for the current Squeenix.

    Can’t wait to see what they’ve done for the music in X-2. One of my favorite soundtracks ever. Of all time.
