Square Enix has officially set a Western release date for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The game will be released on March 18th of next year in North America and shortly after in Europe on the 21st. These release dates are only for the PlayStation 3 version of the game, however. Details about the PS Vita release of the game will come later, Square Enix says.

The game will cost $39.99 USD and will be available in both a standard edition (left) and a limited edition (right), the latter of which includes a special art book. All pre-orders will automatically be updated to the limited edition version of the game. This HD collection contains HD-remastered versions of both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. On top of that, both games are the international versions, so they feature extra content, including Final Fantasy X‘s “Eternal Calm” storyline and Final Fantasy X-2‘s “Last Mission.” This, of course, is in addition to a host of other features specific to the HD-remastered games. The release date announcement also brought with it a new English trailer, so be sure to check it out below.

Overall, this is looking like an exciting release for Final Fantasy fans. If you’re anxiously awaiting March 2014, be sure to check out the latest screenshots of the game and the recent technical comparison showing off the enhanced HD graphics and the updated soundtrack.

    This is such BS Release Date i was expect January 2014 not March

    It is a bit farther away than I’d like, but I’ll pick up the Vita version when it releases. Never played either game, so I’m looking forward to trying them for the first time in portable form.

    that’s great! can’t wait to tell my brother (the ps3 owner.) he’s had me following this for him for a while. but I do have one question, I thought originally, it was said that if you bought the ps3 version, the vita version was included? That it was somehow cross-play enabled between ps3 and vita. Is that still the case? does it unlock when they are both released or is that an idea that was just scrapped? Either way, this is great news!

      Kind of, Sadly the only news I’ve ever heard was that the version would not include cross buy, but it was confirmed that they would have cross play, so you will have access to unified saves.

      I really hope they at least do some sort of bundle, maybe 80 for both games both systems, as I will have a hard time choosing between portability and being able play on my big TV in 1080P.

      hey thanks! yeah, a bundle would be great or some kind of collector’s box. if I had to choose one it would be vita on the go. but it’s great to see it added to the ps3 library. the rpgs on ps3 over the passed two years or so, have really bulked up!

    • madmofo145

      I realize 80 would be a bit much since the game is going for 40 for the limited edition PS3 pre-order , so that would be twice as much to add portable support, or likely what it would cost to buy both outright… Hopefully a bundle exist for 50-60, or maybe an $80 bundle with a soundtrack and some other extra goodies.

      I too would go vita first, mainly because my Vita collection is thin compared to my PS3, and portability would be nice. I’m also excited to get a couple late gen RPG’s this gen, although it’s a little sad that it’s so exciting to get a HD re-release of a last gen game. This gen has been tough for JRPG fans.
