Luke Icenhower's Avatar + Posted by Luke Icenhower on Jul 09, 2013 // Marketing Coordinator, Square Enix

Hey everybody! I know you’re all excited about FINAL FANTASY X|X-2 HD Remaster, so it brings me great joy to announce that, in very limited quantities, those who pre-order the game on PlayStation 3 for $39.99 will receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition art book package!

I’ll go ahead and wait for you to stop jumping up and down or tweeting your friends.

Now on to the fun part! We’re offering you several pieces of original concept art from the early development phases of FINAL FANTASY X and X-2 over ten years ago, lovingly bound in a beautiful 24-page art book package. I mean, just look at that thing! It’s so… gorgeous…

Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD Remaster Limited Edition Art Book

But that’s not all! We’ve also gathered quotes and commentary from several of the original development team members, including a special message to you, the fans, from Producer Yoshinori Kitase himself!

In case you’re not in the know, FINAL FANTASY X|X-2 HD Remaster will be available on PS3 for $39.99 and includes the original FINAL FANTASY X and FINAL FANTASY X-2 from PlayStation 2, on the same disc and remastered in gorgeous High Definition. These are based on the International Versions of the game which were previously only released in Japan and Europe, and you won’t have to wait long because it’s coming to you soon!

Pre-order now for your free upgrade to the Limited Edition art book package, and follow us on Facebook for the latest information hot off the press!

Now feel free to resume your up/down jumping and, what the hey, go ahead and tweet your friends too. ;)

One thing that I’ve noticed in recent trailers that contain English voice acting is that the voice acting seems different. Can you confirm whether or not they have been re-dubbed? Or will it still be using the same voice assets from the original releases, and the re-dubbing was just a trailer thing?

I have had my copy pre-ordered for a while now. This art book will be great.
But no release date. :(

+ Imphobia on July 9th, 2013 at 5:22 am said:

@2 I’m pretty sure i read somewhere the voice acting was also redone
Sadly for me no release date = no pre-order, so hurry up and tell us when it will be released already!

This is great news. Two of the games I’m most excited about are now including a very nice art book in the preorder. I can’t wait.

Release date?!? When they showed the artbook for Kingdom Hearts ReMix, it had a release date. This still doesn’t. :(

This is better than XV, the Emo Fantasy XV.

Nice! A preorder bonus! One I’ll probably miss out on because I refuse to preorder ANYTHING without a hard release date!

What happened to the Vita version? I can’t even find it for pre-order anymore.

Just to confirm, if we preordered this June 2, we will get the art book and stuff right? Im sure we will but I just want to be sure :D

Lolz erapago :P

It seems amazon is still standing by… “This item will be released on December 31, 2013.” <- That….well for the US peeps anyway. Europe gets it earlier, like in September, I think…
That's just as close as we will get to a release date :)

    You should be OK if you pre-ordered from a participating retailer. GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games, to name a few.

+ BlueRobotX on July 9th, 2013 at 6:19 am said:

What about the Vita versions, I’ve read that they will be on two separate game cards, will I have to buy each of the Vita versions separately or will there be a bundle?

+ Walkd on July 9th, 2013 at 6:27 am said:

This was my favorite Final Fantasy. Looking forward to picking this up again.

+ oycomics on July 9th, 2013 at 6:27 am said:

So . . . how about a release date? My summer budget is on a thin edge as it is. But for this, I might make be able to rearrange some things . . . but not without knowing what timeframe to rearrange for.

Simple formula for this (or any game): no release date = no pre-order

Also, is this going to be a Day One Digital release? Any chance for a digital version of the art book? I’ve shifted to almost 100% digital in the last year or so; can’t even remember the last PS3 disc I purchased. I’d make an exception for something like this, but the less stuff taking up room in my house the better.

Really its unfair! Ps vita separate card with no le pre ordered bonus!!! Hey! you guys forgot ps vita? Come on!

+ KazeEternal on July 9th, 2013 at 6:29 am said:

Awesome, but what about the Vita versions?

Release Date?

Will there be any special offers for people who buy the vita versions and the PS3 versions at the same time?

Will Square Enix ever take the time to answer comments on the PS Blog?

What about the Vita versions? Any new about it being cross buy? I know it was stated somewhere that it wasn’t, but I hope that has changed. Or at least have the Vita versions bundled together instead of separate.

Can’t wait to pick this up.. and add me to the number of people who would love a FFXII HD Remake! :) I never got a chance to get through on the PS2 version and the Vita will give me the perfect mobility and playability :)

I wanna second the voices saying please let there be a cross-buy option!
I’ll gladly pay 50-60$ for all of the versions, FFX/2 – Vita and PS3 versions. :) Thanks!

Glad to hear again about International version but one thing: Does this include the Eternal Calm video and Last Mission? I don’t see why those would be cut as they’re pretty important parts of the story, but hoping for confirmation.

Luke, I have a question for you: will the game disc come in a separate case like the EU version, or will it come in the art book like the Hitman HD collection? Us collectors need to know these things. :)

How about the Vita version? I get the two game cards thing but the cases are plenty big enough for two game cards! Or shrink wrap them together! Or announce remote play for the PS3 version. Give us something. The Vita is languishing in a sea of empty game cases…give us a ray of hope please!

Will the LE upgrade apply to existing Amazon pre-orders or do we have to cancel and reorder? No mention of the offer on Amazon. Clarification, please.

so it really is International version? not just FFX, but also FFX-2′s Last Mission as well(which was only japanese?)

and yes JPN audio please!!!

they can pretty much fit it in blu ray!!

Add me to the apparent MOB OF PEOPLE wondering about the Vita version. Why does the official website now only have a pre-order link for the ps3 version? When this was announced it was announced as a Vita title, and now that’s starting to disappear? Vita is awesome but it seriously needs more AAA titles; please don’t sweep this awesome handheld under the rug!!!


48

+ rscayab2064 on July 9th, 2013 at 8:06 am said:

So what about the vita version? no artbooks??

No offense but im gonna buy this for the vita not for the ps3.

Also the vita sales of this game is sure to be a hit rather than the ps3 because THE FFX/X2 IN A HANDHELD CONSOLE, you can play it anywhere, just WOW.

owel i guess u knew that already so u have dcded to put the artbook in the ps3 to boost the sales of the ps3 version,lol.

+ Shoulor on July 9th, 2013 at 8:19 am said:

any way to be sure on amazon that i will get the LE version? as of now the website gives no mention of it and i feel now that i definitely need this art book if its a free upgrade from the regular preorder

+ martinirage1 on July 9th, 2013 at 8:25 am said:

Why was there no mention of the Vita version? I would rather buy this on the vita. Shame that it’s only FF 10 on the vita and not bundled together with 10-2 like the ps3 version. Hope its cheaper
