It’s been almost a year and a half since Square Enix announced PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita editions of its first major PlayStation 2 RPG, Final Fantasy X, but today, the company has announced new details regarding the remaster, as well as the first screenshots.
Final Fantasy X: HD Remaster will be released alongside its sequel, Final Fantasy X-2: HD Remaster, later this year. While no major changes to the games have been announced outside of their enhanced visuals, each game is based on its respective International version re-release. This gives Final Fantasy X extra abilities on the Sphere Grid, extra bosses, Dark Aeons, and more; meanwhile, Final Fantasy X-2 will feature bonus dresspheres, new Garment Grids, and extra story missions set after the main plot. The HD Remaster releases will present the first time this extra content has been available to North American players, while the extra content in X-2 will be new for Europe.
Final Fantasy X: HD Remaster and Final Fantasy X-2: HD Remaster will be released later this year on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in North America, Europe, and Japan. The games will be packaged together on a single Blu-ray disc for PlayStation 3 under the name Final Fantasy X/X-2: HD Remaster, while they will be sold separately on Vita. Square Enix will debut the first trailer for the games on March 25.
