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.
