Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Collector’s Edition Detailed, Vita Release Date

Sakura Minamida's Avatar + Posted by Sakura Minamida on Dec 16, 2013 // Senior Product Manager, Square Enix

Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster

When we announced the Limited Edition of Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster, we got a lot of questions about the Vita version. We promised we’d share the details with you when we had them, and now we do. So let’s open this up with some good news. The game will be coming to PS Vita on March 18th alongside the PS3 version. It will support cross save functionality, and will retail for $39.99!

The combo pack will also be available as a download on PlayStation Store. If you prefer a physical copy, you can buy Final Fantasy X at retail, which will include a voucher to download Final Fantasy X-2 from the PlayStation Store.

And we have even MORE news. Coming exclusively to the Square Enix Online Store, we’re happy to announce the Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster Collector’s Edition for PS3. This is the definitive edition of the game for those of you who, like me, loved every minute of the original, and made costumes of all the characters for your friends so they could wear them… once.

Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster Collector's Edition

So let’s talk about what you’ll be getting in this version. First of all, you get the full size, 40-page hardcover art book filled with the concept sketches, environment art, and characters that populate the world of Spira. The art is separated into two sections, one for each game. In the Final Fantasy X-2 section, we’ve even included a render of all three characters in every single one of their Dresspheres. It’s amazing to see how the art evolved into the final versions used in the game, and we’ve made sure to include some of the early art that would grow into the characters you know and love.

Secondly, that second disk you see in the image above is the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster original soundtrack (blu-ray music disc). This isn’t your everyday soundtrack — it’s actually more than six hours of music set to images from the game that you can hit play on and be taken on a visual journey through some of Final Fantasy X’s most memorable moments. If you’ve ever wanted to share your love for the game with someone special, this would be a great way to do it. Or you could play the game together, of course!

Finally, we’ve got five lithographs of art I know I would be proud to hang on my wall. You may recognize a few of these iconic scenes — Tidus and Yuna in the waters of Macalania Forest, Gunner Yuna’s striking pose — but the image of Tidus and Yuna embracing after all is said and done (I hope you know where you have to whistle) and the new CG render that appears as the Limited Edition box art are brand new visuals created specifically for the Remaster version. Which one do you think you’d frame?

Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster

And of course, you get the game too, in case there was any question.

Our goal with this Collector’s Edition was to give this game’s biggest fans something they could really cherish. I hope you enjoy the results!

The Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster Collector’s Edition will be available exclusively through the Square Enix online store for the PS3 on March 18, 2014 for $79.99. Supplies will be limited, so pre-order to reserve your copy.

    I played this game for over 200 hrs back in 2001 – I plan on doing the same again. So much nostalgia of my college years – rather be playing FFX than studying! And now with it being accessible on the Vita … how am I going to get any work done around here!!! :P

    You can but the physical copy at retailers or you can download on PSN. Both options come as a X / X-2 bundle pack for $39.99.

@Zionine Yeah I’ve seen the Terraria trophy list is combined. And yeah “Sound Shapes” is another example of separate trophy list. And since the game isn’t cross-buy they could give a person a little bit more incentive to buy both versions.

Question: Will we have the option to buy DLC for the Japanese voice acting?

I would like to get the Vita version, but I wish there was collectors edition for that one too.

+ ffnuno on December 16th, 2013 at 6:22 am said:

Will EU get the collector´s edition? It´s already expensive, if I need to import the price will be ludicrous! I feel like EU is getting the short stick lately. There was no Pre-order link for KH1.5 limited edition for EU either. At least there was one with the pre-order bonuses for LR:FFXIII

Does the soundtrack CD include music from Final Fantasy X-2 as well or is it just Final Fantasy X?

I got the Collector’s Edition of Lightning Returns but I don’t know if I can get the Collector’s Edition of this for a couple reasons:
1) I only have so much money.
2) I’ll have to deal with Digital River again. Can you guys please use someone else? Did you not see how badly they messed up the Ni no Kuni Wizard’s Edition last year? I would really prefer to deal with you guys directly since I trust *YOU*, Square-Enix, not a third-party who don’t care about customer service.
Thanks. :(

I hope SE will announce a Limited Edition for the PS Vita too.

100% Sure buy :)


64

+ afigueroa on December 16th, 2013 at 6:33 am said:

I see what SE did here. They purposely did a physical/digital combo to do away with buying used copies. If you trade back the game to your local Gamestop, you can bet that copy has already used up the code for Ff x2. So if you want to play both games you have to pay full price, since they’re not available separately.

Any word on when the Vita version will be available for preorder? Is the box art the same?

+ BahamutBBob on December 16th, 2013 at 6:36 am said:

Well this is actually pretty bad news.

I never had any intention of buying the game for PS3, but the Limited Edition sounds like it’s not the same packaging as the Kingdom Hearts HD bundle, right? Because if it is, then that’s pretty bad, because that packaging is horrible. I would gladly trade my KH HD LE with someone’s normal edition copy.

I was going to buy it on Vita, mainly for FFX-2, since I never got to play it. So I would want that it physical, not FFX. Why can’t they both be physical, when in Japan, Soul Sacrifice had an option to buy 2 carts in one box? If the case already exists, why not use it?

Because of the decision to have no physical release of FFX-2 on Vita, if I ever get this collection, I will wait for it to be cheap. $20 or less. Killing at least some of your profit margin.

    The Limited Edition is the same as the KH 1.5 packaging but the Collector’s Edition isn’t. The Limited Edition is a free upgrade for people for pre-order. The free upgrade will no longer be available once pre-orders are complete or we run out of inventory – which ever comes first and will become the standard packaging. Collector’s Edition will be a full size art book.

Hi Sakura-san!

please answer my questions:
1. does the Artbook included in Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster Limited Edition available at Amazon, different from the one available in the Square Enix Store?
2. If I preorder, does my Credit Card charged instantly?

Looking forward for your response… Thanks! <3

    Hello GeroIPS-san!

    Ohayou gozaimasu! Answers below!

    1. The Limited Edition (Not the Collector’s Edition) is the same at all participating retailers. Collector’s Edition is only available at the Square Enix Store.

    2. Each retailer has different policies so I would check with the retailers you plan on pre-ordering from.

Hi, i’d just like to express disappointment at the lack of a physical release for FFX-2 Vita. Vita memory cards are rather small in comparison to the size of games, I prefer to purchase physical releases when possible. FFX-2 is not some “bonus”, it’s one of the best games in the series and I don’t like it being forced into a download only title, even if I buy retail.


78

+ GodOxidian2 on December 16th, 2013 at 6:52 am said:

How about a physical FFX-2, I wanted to lend the game too, no one cares about FFX, you might aswell put X as download only, thx.

I love that Final Fantasies 1-10 are all available on the Vita. Good going, Squeenix. This year I played through VI and IX for the first time on my Vita and had a great time. Bonus points that it’s possible to transfer my Vita save to a PS1 memory card and back using a PS3 as an intermediary, because I am insane, apparently.

I would have LOVED if this collector’s edition had the Vita editions included too. I’d have paid $100 for it even. As it is, I gotta go with the Vita editions alone, portability is the biggest sell of this remake for me. I hope the people that’ll be selling the visual soundtrack on Ebay don’t gouge me too badly.
