Final Fantasy X HD Remaster

As of today, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has been officially released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in North America. The remaster is a compilation of the international versions for both titles, never localized for North America, giving fans of the original NTSC release a new opportunity to experience Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 in a way they never have before.

Both games are now sporting new high resolution textures and character models, along with a remastered soundtrack of the original musical score.

The game features brand-new content for the North American market and will provide players with an entirely new way to experience the world of Spira. Players will be able to watch the Eternal Calm, a short film following Yuna after the events of FINAL FANTASY X. Additionally, Last Mission, the storyline-based mission following Yuna, Rikku and Paine in their exploration of the Iutycyr Tower ruins will make its North American debut.

With this remaster, we wanted to service our community by bringing back two of the most cherished titles in the series,” said Yoshinori Kitase, producer at SQUARE ENIX. “We’ve spent a lot of time completely remastering the game and the final high-definition experience is a true testament to the team’s hard work. We can’t wait for the fans to re-experience the gorgeous world of Spira.

    final fantasy x and x-2 have their faults, x2 especially. but the dress spheres and non-linear missions make up for that. put them together, it’s the total package, with a lot of baggage. vita fans also have persona 4,psn store, and conception II on the way. so proper rpg’s are finally rolling out for vita owners.

    “With this remaster, we wanted to service our community by bringing back two of the most cherished titles in the series”

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought that (at least) X-2 was considered by most as one of the WORST games in the series, XIII trilogy notwithstanding.

      Ehh, I’ll play through 10 but not touch 10-2 haha. I’m just glad we’re getting remasters of good RPG’s from the old days (seeing as how the rpg genre has fallen from grace this past gen). I kinda hope FF12 gets an HD release too

    • Jonah Rosen

      Well, I still think that there are still great RPG series out there, specifically the Tales series, but I kinda get what you’re saying. Yeah I heard not very many good things about X-2, in fact I hear almost nothing but terrible things about it. However, I’ll reserve actual judgement on it & X as I haven’t played it before so this is a good opportunity to do so.

      So strange to think of FFX as from “the old days”. When I think of the “good RPGs from the old days”, I think about NES/SNES games. Maybe its just a generation thing, FFX came out when I was in college.

      And I don’t really think RPGs fell out of grace in the last generation. The top boards on GameFAQs has consistently been topped by RPGs for years now. Maybe the JRPG fell out of favor, but even that is a tough argument- since most of them just moved to handhelds, and games like poke-a-mans sell like gangbusters here. And given how RPGs have been selling, especially on the 3DS for the last year or so, I reject the premise that RPGs fell out of favor.

      As for the remaster itself, I’m passing on it. FFX was one of my least favorite entries in the series, and I’m honestly pretty much done with remakes and ports and remasters. I’d rather play new things, especially now that my time is more limited. As much as I want a remaster of FF12, I’m not sure if I’d bother getting it.
