Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Announcement Trailer

March 25th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 will see new life on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, thanks to a new set of HD remasters that will make their way to North American shores this year. Re-releasing for the HD generation, these games will feature updated character models and assets, as well as the International content that remained Japan-exclusive until now.

The PlayStation 3 version will include both games on one Blu-ray disc, while the PlayStation Vita versions will be sold separately. Every version will support the trophy system on the PlayStation Network, so be prepared to hunker down and spend some quality time with each title.

For the debut announcement from producer Yoshinori Kitase, as well as some screenshots from the game, click here. For a look at the International content that will be included in these releases, check out my write-up here.

Now that you’ve seen the game in motion, albeit briefly, how does it stack up to the screenshots or the original version of the game? Will you be purchasing them for PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita (or both)? What features of an HD remastering do you think are essential?

Leave us your thoughts in a comment below!

    I know it looks great and all, but to be honest I was more awed by the very first trailer for Lightning Returns, and that was of an early build and didn’t even have all the footage in it. Graphics are great, but in terms of excitement, it’s not ranking anything tangible.

  • Chris

    @AnimeManga

    Yea those of you who are bigger fans of the FFXIII series would probably be more excited over Lightning Returns. That’s obvious. But for everyone else this is REALLY exciting.

  • Bekas

    I was expecting more of this trailer. I mean, they just basically gave us the scenes where they took the screens released last week. At this point, I expected to see at least some footage of in-battle graphics.

    I am excited for this remaster, yes… But Square’s recent habit of releasing as lil’ info as they can subdues it considerably.

  • AnimaMagna

    @ Chris
    I adore Final Fantasy X, its story, its characters and its whole experience, just like I really like XII and can appreciate Final Fantasies VII, VIII and XIV. It’s not that I only like the XIII games, it’s just that I like my trailers both a little longer and a little more…rousing. Mind you, that tease for X-2 gave me a start. I didn’t expect the sudden sting of music from ‘Real Emotion’.

  • Chris

    Oh well I have to agree the trailer could’ve been better, but compared to what we were getting before the announcement of X-2, I will take crummy trailers like this all the way up to E3. Then we can demand more footage including gameplay.

  • Ehren Rivers

    I’m gonna have to agree with AnimaMagna albeit for different reasons. I AM disappointed there was no battle stuff shown, but what’s less engaging for me is the fact that very few of the scenes I personally considered emotional were being shown. Sure the campfire in Zanarkand and Yuna/Tidus in the pond was important and it tugs at the heart, but there are others that have a pretty good impact too. The laughing scene, the Farplane, encountering the Fayth near Zanarkand, Yuna diving away from her wedding with Seymour, the destruction of Kilika…

    All of these things could have been added for a fuller effect to the trailer, and it wouldn’t have been more than 20 seconds maximum given their short-length clip style. I love Final Fantasy X and X-2, I’m excited as the dickens for this collection, and I’m pleased beyond measure that we’re finally getting a good influx of news. At the same time, though, I think there will be a lot of people unimpressed by this trailer. Or, more accurately, teaser.

  • X

    One thing I noticed was there was only the voice acting in the one part and the rest was silent so maybe they are showing limited footage because they are redoing the voice overs so it doesn;t sound so crappy and outdated? (Plus the performances kinda sucked the first time around anyway…)

  • Ehren Rivers

    Unlikely, X, given that the voice acting we heard is the exact same as the opening lines from Final Fantasy X. (I compared the audio, and I can definitely say that this particular set of lines was not redubbed for the trailer) It will probably just be remastered to reduce noise and sound artifacts. That’s not to say this still might not happen, but it would make more sense of the line in the trailer had been redubbed. The only thing I personally had to complain about with the voices in X were Wakka’s voice actor (Who I have since come to know better as Bender from Futurama, which weirds me out)and the grainy quality of the sound which made everything sound a little less real. If everything in X and X-2 sounds like that trailer though, I think it will be much better this time around.

  • alexsam

    @Ehren Rivers First off, massive lol at the fact that Wakka shares the same voice actor with Bender of all characters!! Fact of the day right there!

    Second, I must be one of the few that actually enjoyed X’s audio. Despite the fact that it was FF’s first shot at actually having their characters speak instead of making us read text boxes (which sometimes went too fast and we ended up missing some incredibly important detail of the story), this was actually very good! Wakka’s accent, in specific, was a bit comedic but not to the point where you couldn’t take him seriously if you had to. I disliked Yuna’s voice, but I disliked Yuna in general. She seemed so hopeless. But, if you want to see what I mean, take the scene before the battle with Yunalesca. Epic one-liners by everyone. And I too agree that I don’t think that they’ll be sticking with these voices and audio. Why should they change it?

  • Ehren Rivers

    @alexsam: Yup, John DiMaggio. He also the voice of Gilgamesh in every English FF that has him in it, as far as I know. You can really hear the Bender in his voice in his XIII-2 DLC, when he breaks the 4th Wall by remarking he was worried you’d never download that part of the game.

    Actually, I DO like the voices and so on in X. At the time the graininess didn’t really bother me because it was better quality than most games I’d heard voice acting in. Later, though, after XII and Advent Children and Kingdom Hearts and XIII and, and, and- Going back to it after all of that, the flaws in the recording quality (or the implementation of the tracks) became far more apparent. Still nothing that broke my enjoyment of the game, but I came to notice that it was there.

    Also, I think you mean you agree that you DO think they’ll be sticking with this audio, or you agree that you don’t think they’ll CHANGE the audio. Hahahaha. 😛

  • Tony Garsow

    @Ehren
    Gilgamesh was voiced by Keith Szarabajka in Dissidia 012.

  • Ehren Rivers

    @Tony: Oh wow, really? I mostly had to play the Dissidia games with the sound off (playing in my living room), does he sound very different from John DiMaggio’s performances? I hope it wasn’t one of those awkward sore thumb situations…

    And for that matter, did they get Yuna’s voice actress to come back for Dissidia 012? I remember they get the YRP actresses back for KH2, but that’s the last I heard.

  • anony

    @Ehren! Yep hedy is back for dissidia 012. I guess they’ll likely bringing her back. Lucky she not changing VA’s like aerith which 3 or 4 different VA.

    Fun Fact: dont forgot kimarhi has same VA as wakka and gilgy. He did good job in ffx i think.

  • alexsam

    @Ehren Rivers Yes, I did mean that I think they’ll stick with the same audio for the HD. Man, I should really double-check my msgs, lol…

    Even after all those titles (and movies) that you mentioned though, (I’ve played through most of them as well) I still think that X has some of the finest voicing around. Auron’s voice is amaaazing, Tidus is tacky, Lulu is strict, Seymour is a suck-up and you can totally tell through their voices! Sure, the game isn’t in lip-sync, but to this day very few are. At least it wasn’t british hell like XII, where only one character stood out!

  • X

    The only voice I really didn’t care for was Yuna’s because I know she’s supposed to be innocent and everything but at other times it just sounded like she spoke broken english to me and it just sounded awkward, but I guess that could’ve been the point maybe?
