The lights are on
Square Enix has finally unveiled a Japanese release date for the PlayStation 3 and Vita Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD re-releases, but it still hasn't announced its North American plans.
The games will be available in Japan on December 26. The PlayStation 3 game is packaged X and X-2 on one disc. The Vita versions of the games will be separate releases, but they will also be sold together at a bundled price that comparable to the PlayStation 3 version.
North American release plans for the game are still ambiguous, but both games are coming. For more on the game, check out the latest trailer.

Our TakeSince Square Enix did not announce a worldwide release date for the games, the assumption is that North America won't being seeing Final Fantasy X and X-2 in HD until next year. There's a chance that Square Enix could reveal later that the game will receive a simultaneous worldwide release, but it doesn't seem likely.

Oh, that's nice that they're going to have a bundled price for the Vita versions. I thought they were going to come out this year worldwide, but that's not the case it seems. :/
Welcome to 2013. It doesn't make sense anymore to release a game in Japan and then in the US at a later date, anymore. It is even more perplexing that this is simply an HD re-make and you already have the translation complete.
well blah :/ still tho it might be smart for it to wait a bit so it doesn't get lost in the incoming holiday shuffle
Looks nice, and I can't wait for it. Still though..there's no reason it should be taking this long
Well that rules out a 2013 NA release then. Won't be until the end of Spring or Summer until I expect it here, and that's lowballing.
Too bad, I don't see myself buying anything else for PS3 after Arkham Origins, especially with getting 6 games for PS4. My plate is already too full as it is, and I still have to pick up Beyond along with my pre-order of Origins.
Another reason I'LL still be keeping my PS3. Been look'in for an excuse to play this again.
Been waiting since they originally announced this game in 2011!!! Can't wait for the American release date.
Kind of weird they wouldn't release in North America at the same time, especially given how popular this game was when it first came out.
Quit testing my patience SE, I want to play this now!
I keep thiking this has been out for months
Never played FF X or X-2, so I'm excited for the PS3 version of the game. Will be great experiencing them for the first time on my HDTV :)
Also, I had a feeling it wouldn't come out this year in the US. I'm not too disappointed, though, as there is so many games coming out this year, I should be busy until it comes out here.
