The lights are on
Square Enix's intention to create HD rematers
of Final Fantasy X and X-2 for PlayStation or Vita had been long talked about
among fans of the series. Now, it's official - and the HD remaster will be coming
out for both PlayStation 3 and Vita.
In a post on the official PlayStation Blog,
remaster producer Yoshinori Kitase officially announced the games, which will
be released in America sometime before the end of 2013. Kitase said, "I invite you all to once again join Tidus and
Yuna as they combat the colossal menace known as "Sin" to bring about lasting
peace to the world of Spira - all in gorgeous HD!"
keep you posted on more information about the HD remakes, until then gaze at
these lovely screenshots.

It looks... so... beautiful...
Um, we already knew this?
Another ten years of Tidus/Yuna music videos on Youtube.
It was so awesome it got two posts.
So by 2013 .... I think they meant by 2015...
The game is already like 13 years old now that I think about it.
It looks beautiful! I can't wait!
This is incredible. These screenshots look beautiful
I feel like I already commented on this story earlier, but I must say I am very, very excited about this. Definite day-one buy for me.
WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN
Very nice. I know it's easy to rip on Square for being so inefficient these days - really, HD Game Production seems to be baffling a lot of their teams (Even though they were one of the first studios in the world to effectively use Unreal Engine 3 for Last Remnant. How odd). And stuff like Versus XIII and All the Bravest are just complete jokes. But this? They seem to have a handle on this. HD Remasters usually aren't that big of a deal, but they're knocking this one out of the park and going in and remaking a lot of assets it seems (not just up-rezzing textures). It looks really great.
To get in the mood, let's all have a listen at FFX's Beautiful Opening Theme, "To Zanarkand":
And heck, why not enjoy the slightly cheesy, totally awesome opening to Final Fantasy X-2 (a guilty favorite of mine), "Real Emotion":
These games are great :D
double post? baha must be chaotic over there at pax
YESSSSSSS!!!! I normally don't care for graphics enough to take notice whenever such-and-such game gets re-released in "glorious HD," but Final Fantasy X is easily my favorite and most nostalgic entry in the entire series. Even though I still play the original on occasion and I'm fine with the graphics, I gotta grab this. Updated graphics on an already visually impacting game sounds great and I'm still holding out hope for some cool extra content. International Sphere Grid please!
Imagine THIS > [ http://youtu.be/WJotVinhXJ4 ] in glorious HD!!
Now... will you PLEASE release Final Fantasy Versus XIII, already!?!?!?!
Well, this is a slightly different article.
