Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster will launch worldwide this Winter By Erren Van Duine on September 18, 2013 at 11:35 PM

Tokyo Game Show will not be the place Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster gets dated, as so many probably hoped it would.

Instead, a new press released issued to us by Square Enix lists the launch date for the PS3 and Vita title as “Winter” instead of their previously touted 2013. Pricing and packaged details remain TBA as well, although we know both X and X-2 will be bundled eventually with custom PS Vita hardware in Japan.

The remaster itself will feature higher quality character models, improved enemy texture quality as well as a revamped user interface. A good chunk of the game’s music has also been rearranged, with original composer Masashi Hamauzu supervising.

Final Fantasy X|X-2 is playable at TGS and despite the lack of a final date, hopefully we’ll be playing the game at home before too long. In the meantime, you can watch the full TGS trailer, which we’ve provided below.

    This is getting rather ridiculous…

    I kinda thought there might be a several-month delay when that menu leaked showing the Last Mission thing. If this isn’t a delay to keep the release simultaneous, I don’t doubt there will be at least several months gap between JP and NA/EU release.

    I’m actually glad it’s getting delayed and everything, already got enough on my plate this year, but SE REALLY oughta try and communicate with their fans a bit more about stuff like this. I mean all year long its been 2013, 2013, and as we edged closer to the end of the year, “oh we don’t have an exact date yet, but 2013 definitely “. It’s. things like that that ALMOST make me sympathize with those constant SE whiners. They gotta learn how to make good on their promises, or just not say anything…

    While I too would prefer silence, there’s a really vicious cycle at work here.

    -Square Enix is silent
    -People rage and demand X information, even if it’s just a ballpark/window
    -Square Enix caves and gives a window, which may change later
    -People rage if it is changed at all
    -Square Enix goes silent
    -Repeat until you want to tear your eyes out and close the internet forever

  • Anime10121

    Too true.

  • Ehren Rivers

    What I perceive to be the problem here is that Square Enix could be allowing more information or screenshots regarding localization and development while still saying “It’ll be done when it’s done”. I think one of their weakest areas is flow of information, and it shows.

  • Panos Dek

    Again… Something goes entirely wrong with announcing the release dates and info. On “Saturday” we get “end of 2013″, and on “Sunday” “winter 2013-2014″… As with XV, “new info at TGS” then “no new info at TGS”… Who is in charge for these announcements? I’m totally confused by SE! xD

    the Assault/Attack/Raid soundtrack sounds great! Aside from that, its kinda getting out of hand the delay of this game. However, I only hope that Square gives us updated news about to see if all the delays they made was worth towards to the game, thats all I ask. I can wait, no problem, but I only hope that Sqaure brings good news.

    The menu in the second video in this link http://kotaku.com/final-fantasy-x-looks-beautiful-in-hd-x-2-looks-goo-1346817471 is the same as the menu leaked some time ago. So it’s safe to assume that Last mission will be included right ?

  • Ehren Rivers

    Certainly looks like it! :D

  • devidation

    Ok besides no real date I am happy that we atleast know it is coming in the winter >.<

  • Erren Van Duine

    Current rumors suggest February…

  • devidation

    Well ok but I realy don’t understand why they would do that, I mean so close to LR:FFXIII. I don’t mind buying both but some people can only afford to buy only one of the 2. Wouldn’t it hurt sales for both games ?

    And they still don’t give us a release date…
    I hope LM to be included
    But still i’m happy :)

  • Andrea Toniolo

    IGN says SE said that in Japan FFX HD will be released on Dec 19th.. So based on what the trailer says US and EU should get it more or less before xmas?

  • Erren Van Duine

    That was a fake rumor unfortunately…

  • Andrea Toniolo

    T_T

  • Daniel Maia

    Anyone here knows if in FFX-2 HD the exclusive dresspheres of the international version “Psychicher” and “Festival Goer” will be available? And will the way to achieve 100% change now that it will be the international version?
