Final Fantasy X HD to include remastered Final Fantasy X-2 in Japan

PS3 version to have both titles on same disc; PS Vita version to sell JRPGs separately in Japan.

The upcoming Final Fantasy X HD re-release for the PS3 in Japan will also have another game attached to it: the sequel known as Final Fantasy X-2.

Final Fantasy X-2 will be added alongside the upcoming HD edition.

According to a report on a recent issue of Japanese manga collection magazine Shonen Jump, both games will be on one disc for the PS3 version. However, the two titles will be sold separately for the PS Vita version.

Both games will be based on the international versions released on the PS2, which means bonuses like the expert Sphere Grid option, dark aeon battles, and the Last Mission subquest will be available.

The re-release will be out this year in Japan. There is currently no word on whether the game will be published for North American and European audiences.

Funny, they didn't release MGS HD Collection with jap language :S. Reason I don't play newer FFS games: Active Action Combat -.-. I loved FFX and the prequels because I could actually have a drink coffee etc, etc without having to spam buttons in order to win.. Also in the new ones you can't actually see the characters attack, you just see flashes and shit flying all over the screen..

Typical Japan, fucking xenophobes. So now we're going to haveto buy the Japanese version and not be able to read or understand any of it. Despite knowing the dialogue and having beaten it, that's still not ok.

I denitely liked Final Fantasy X and X-2, and I would definitely like to see these games released in the US. I am sure that those in Europe would like to see the game as well.

Usually they make an announcement for the international release some months after the Japanese announcement. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix for example.


Be patient, OF COURSE it's coming over here.

The US really missed out by not getting the international version of X, lots of extra things to do, it'd be a great reason to pick it up. They may as well market this reason, may persuade some people on the line. But since I'm in Europe I hope it gets released here too, many die hard FF fans here too. I remember reading ages ago that FF has a bigger fanbase internationally than it did in Japan, so they'd be idiots not to release it over here.

Not that big on HD remasters when I have the originals already. However, I am looking forward to FF X HD.  

FF X-2 HD, on the other hand, will never see my TV screen. That is a sequel that never should've happened.

Just like MSG HD, it seems like they come up with reasons to discourage people buying the VITA version.

As much as I HATE THESE GAMES WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!! I know a lot of people who would want to play these games on PS3. I don't understand why Square isn't doing this considering this would sell huge in America.

Please please bring this to the USA, Canada, England, etc. The International version of FFX-2 is awesome, you can have like anybody from the FFX universe in your party, not just the three girls. It has some awesome combat too. A remastered version would be a dream to play.

Better consider releasing this worldwide, would be silly to keep this over there only.

Square would win Stupidest Developer 2013 if it didn't bring this to North America. EA already won 2011 and 2012.

I'm in Japan so I'm happy for now, but I'd much prefer a game I could fully understand so I'm hoping for an English release. Really, I thought SE had learned by now not to ignore the western market for this kind of stuff.

I really don't get why publishers keep doing this. They make a game that does great in Japan and also does good here in the US. Then when they go to do something cool with it, we get left in the dark. It really bugs me. Especially since most of the games I play are RPGs and JRPGs.

Considering it is SquareEnix I wouldn't be surprised  if they are Japan only.

@FreeRPGer It should never have happened but look at it this way - better than XIII-2. And 13.

@YEPEE00 which bugs? I don't remember any, at least I didn't have a problem with that game

The singing and dancing was my favorite part. I might have liked FFX more if Yuna and Rikku had been part of a girl-band from the beginning.

Yeah, total crap in my opinion! It was so corny, it almost got me vomit! And they destroyed great sphere grid upgrade system.

@TheRockSez611 And they wonder why it isn't selling else where. =P Think it proves a point.

@Grenadeh

True. Including X-2 on this is better than XIII or XIII-2.

Personally, I find the ending of X-2 horrible and questionable, in my opinion. The only thing I liked about X-2 was the battle system. The story in X-2 almost ruined FF X for me, and I loved X. 

Also, I think they made Yuna too bubble-gum, compared to her character in the first game. Changed her whole image, ruined it.

@07jonesj @zzamaro I think it depends, but what I said is acceptable. Something like "I hate this game", "I never liked this franchise", or "I hate GameSpot" is more childish.
