Final Fantasy X HD announced

PS3 News | A classic returns.
One of the most critically acclaimed games ever produced by Square is getting a re-release, for both your home systems and your hands. Today, at Sony Japan's Tokyo Game Show 2011 press conference Square Enix announced Final Fantasy X HD for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

To some it is the best of the Final Fantasy games, and for every other fan its certainly a good contender. The adventure starring Tidus and Yuna saw critical acclaim and great worldwide success on the PlayStation 2 when it released globally through 2001 and 2002.

Though details are scarce, Final Fantasy X HD is confirmed for release on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. What remains to be seen is whether this is a full fledged high definition remake, or a souped-up port not unlike Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD and the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

Regardless, this will be a solid title for JRPG fans looking to relive the adventure, and worth a look for the few who missed the original outing.

That said, the movie theatre for all the cutscenes was the best innovation in final fantasy, it kills me that they did not keep it on.

They also announced that ZOE HD will come to the PS Vita as well. That's just crazy.

Absolute must have for me, assuming it's at a budget price point. I bought this game twice on PS2 (my first copy stopped working) and I'd be happy to shell out another $40-50 to play it in HD with trophy support, extra features or no (but I'm really hoping for extra features). Maybe this also paves the way for KH1+2 in HD...

I'll hit it if it's the NTSC version.

I love seeing how they adapt trophies into older games. I hope they don't go the stupid route...(One trophy for beating the dark magus sisters lol)

Apparently the Metal Gear HD remake is coming to Vita too, so hopefully Monster Hunter comes too.

An extremely reliable rumour list pointed to Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD making launch, but it's nowhere to be seen and I dont know why. It's a little bit conerning, actually. Maybe Capcom will announce it a bit later.

I've done it at least twice so 1 more time won't bother me.

If it is then it better be the international version. The PAL/International version has all the bonus stuff like Dark Aeons. I'll take the extra's over a better screen ratio. Both would be good but the extras are fine for me.

So grab it on PSN. It's the original PS1 version, so the resolution is terrible, but it's the same game.

I quite liked FFX, but hated Blitz Ball. I know a lot of people love it, but I thought I was playing an RPG, not a pseudo sports sim.

I'll probably bite and get this when it's released. Dunno when I'll find the time to play through it again though. It took an insane amount of time to grind through the first time to beat everything.

Keep doing what you do best Square-Enix

Its absolutely bat crazy that we have to wish so hard for games like FF7 to come out. With such mega popularity it baffles me that SE havent re-released this game in some form. Here have.... FF10!

DAMN I want my FFVI remake, in HD 2D. Is it SO hard?

Actually on FFVI (and V for that matter), it was stated a while back that they weren't remade on the DS like 3 and 4 due to 'technical limitations'. So expect remakes of those on the 3DS/Vita.

Or they could make a new game that doesn't suck? Honestly I think Square are way too busy resting on there laurels of late.

Here's why you won't get FFVII and why you'll get PS2 HD ports.

PS2 games assets scale up to HD better than PS1 and for a nominal sum, SE can get these remakes out.

To redo 7,8,9. they'd have to redo the static backgrounds/environments into real 3D worlds, remake all the models, update the cgi etc - a multi million dollar project that will take a lot of time.

so I'm not going to hold my breath for a FFVII-IX remake anytime soon.


They should just start on FFXIV
