Final Fantasy X (AND X2) Remaster

Most of you already saw this on Tumblr, but just to signal boost...

Sometime this year, the long-awaited FFX HD remaster will FINALLY be released for Playstation 3, Vita. (Probably not XBox.)

It includes:

  • Final Fantasy X
  • Final Fantasy X-2 (bundled together on PS3, separately on Vita...what?)
  • All content previously only available in international version, INCLUDING Dark Aeons, Penance, "Last Mission" story, Coliseum (which I'm psyched about, because you can grab any enemy you defeat for an ally, including Lulu, Lucil, Elma)
  • Revamped sphere grid
  • Three new dresspheres (presumably psychic, festivalgoer and something else?)
  • Tweaked X-2 gameplay
  • New final bonus dungeon in addition to Last Mission's bonus dungeon.

So many people have been playing these games on emulators that we've gotten spoiled to seeing twelve-year-old graphics as crisp as they can be -- much better than they were on our old fuzzy tv sets. So the graphics won't actually be that much of an upgrade. We're talking Dissidia graphics, not FFXIII graphics. But the point is that all the content will be playable, including chunks that were never released in the U.S., on a modern console.

Now if only they had room to cram in the Japanese voices with English subtitles and/or get Hedy Buress to reread Yuna's lines for FFX without Shatnering. (I still want to bop whoever told her to lip synch, which most of the VAs decided to ignore.)

All of this will be on the PS3 version? Oh, lord. I think I'm going to have a heart attack. No passing it up now. I'm going to be such a spoiled little nerd once I get this.

Though I'd love for FFX to be redone in FFXIII graphics (holy crap, Auron would be more than perfect!), I'm content with it being closer to Dissidia. Good game, good fun. Except the way they pronounce Tidus' name. It should be "Tie-dus," not "Tee-dus." Hello! He came from the sea! Urrrrgh! It kills me!

As much as I love Hedy, I can't stand the way she read for Yuna half the time. I mean, some of it was very sweet, like the way she was too afraid to really tell Tidus how she felt about him in the sphere. But most everything else? Blah. Redo, please. (Wait, they told them to lip synch? Where is this info???)

Drat, I can't find a confirmed source for that, but I think it was mentioned in an official interview at some point that she was instructed to lip synch for FFX, not for X-2, hence the marked improvement in X-2 and Dissidia.

I have been so excited for this since I heard about it but oh my goodness I didn't know they were remaking X-2 too with all of the International content as well.

And I am full of both joy and despair because I don't have a PS3. :C

I wonder if they'll at least edit Yuna's dialogue so it flows more smoothly.

Do you know what they are doing with the Sphere Grid? What's going to be different about it?

Not a clue!

And ouch, no PS3.

It's my kitty! I've had that picture for awhile but I just made it into an icon recently.
