Update: Final Fantasy X | X-2 Remaster HD is now available on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. The completely HD remastered bundle was the first Final Fantasy title to feature voice acting and full 3D graphics. Now fans can experience the milestone RPG in a completely new and beautiful way.
Yoshinori Kitase, Square Enix producer, provided a respectably poignant statement on the RPG update's rerelease:
"With this remaster, we wanted to service our community by bringing back two of the most cherished titles in the series. 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 was released almost fourteen years ago, back in an age where the PlayStation 2 dominated the console wars. Think about that, a whole generation of consoles has passed since Final Fantasy X was released, yet here we are again celebrating the game's remastered rerelease. Heck, the remaster may be just as anticipated as modern Final Fantasy releases by a number of gamers. Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2's HD remasters launch March 18.
To celebrate next weeks launch is, of course, a launch trailer showing off plenty of visual for both titles. It shouldn't be too surprising to see that many of the models look outstanding with their updated graphics. All of the colors are quite vivid and crisp and spell animations are better than ever. More than, however, is how impressive X-2 looks. Just goes to show how much of a difference the brief between X and X-2's release graphics improved. Dem Aeons.
Make sure to pick up the Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster package, available for both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita starting March 18. In retail the PS3 version will come on a single disc, where the PS Vita's 2-in-1 package will feature X on the game card and X-2 as a download via voucher.
