Square Enix today presents the first official trailer of Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD.
Really excited for this, never had the chance to play this on PS2 so ill be playing on my vita. I've only heard great things bout the FFX and bad things bout FFX-2. And it looks great so far.
X-2's battle system was pretty good, it'd much faster than X's, and there are a lot of sidequests- it's not all bad.
So long as you tune out you brain while you're playing it. I'd much rather FF12 HD over X-2...never got to play that one :(
X-2 battle system was great. Never got to finish the game though, so this would be a good opportunity. @irishguy96 FFXII was amazing but you have to understand that X-2 is the easier option since they are already upscaling the models for X. For them to upscale XII would take years longer.
@r21 I'm in the same boat as you . I never got around to playing FFX .And I am getting it for the Vita. I think It's going to look and play great on the Vita.
Final Fantasy X is the only FF I enjoyed, its really good!
Never played the OG games but I'm kind of excited for these. The music in this game is amazing though and I've heard the story is good as well. All these good RPG's coming to PS3 so late in it's life cycle. Don't own one though. It's coming to Vita too right ? Maybe I'll just buy one of those.
Yep Vita as well. If you have never played FFX. I HIGHLY recommend it. The game's music, world, characters, and story are all top notch.
good game, decent story and the last game before squaresoft went all squareenix and ruined everything.
a must buy game
to zarnakand such a sad song cant wait to play this again
My favourite song, can you tell haha
Love to play this on the go:D Vita it is! JRPG feels far better on portable...
Nothing feels better on a portable, except maybe Angry Birds.
@nm97 Who are you calling an idiot? I am playing my 3ds and vita far more than my ps3, wii u and xbox 360. Hd graphics are nothing if you have a shiny screen and marvelous gameplay
JRPG's are great on a portable device(vita). It hides alot of the bad textures because of small screen. Another reason why JRPG's are great on a handheld si because of all the grinding needed on those games. Some grinding parts can get a little boring, so doing those grinding chores on a commute can be brilliant.
You should no by now that Angry Birds gets no love on N4G. Lol.
You know that nm97 was talking to the guy who said "Nothing feels better on a portable" right? Lol. :]
so where is x-2 in HD ? all i seen so far is just x in HD
Probably advertising one half of the remaster now, so they cna release another trailer in a little while to advertise FFX-2. makes for an easy 2nd showing to continue the marketing.
Please please please let there be no trophy for getting everyones ultimate weapons..Never could dodge the 200 lightning bolts for Kimahris :(
You'll be lucky if there isn't a trophy for defeating Penance to be honest. These are the international versions after all. Getting everyone's ultimate weapons is a cakewalk in comparison.
Never looked at it that way lol
I forgot all about dodging the lightening bolts, but I don't remember it being to difficult at all. As for Penance, I don't remember that being to hard either, just more of an endurance battle.
The hardest thing about X was getting all the Ultimate weapons. The game was a cakewalk, especially in the end when you got haste and quick hit. I loved the game, but they practially held your hand thru the whole thing. A step back from the PS1 titles
For Lulu's *
I remember dodging like 190 something and then messing up because I had to scratch...... I nearly threw my controller into the wall. Luckily on my next try I got it though lol. Best tip for it? Turn OFF the sound for the game. The music and the thunder crashing simply make it harder than it has to be.
Thanks for the tip...ill be sure to try it later this year...or whenever its released lol Edit: youre right Shuyin... Its been a while :)
Yeah, I actually brought this topic in one of my country's local forums. I had to sleep 10 hours and made sure I feel fresh the morning I attempted to get Lulu's Ultimate Weapon. Luckily, my preparation worked. I hope I can pull it off again this time!
Man, dodging lightning bolts was a nightmare! I was able to do it eventually but I feared it every time I replayed the game... Man, it is still scary to think that I will have to dodge them again in HD... shudder...
I found collecting the butterflies a lot more annoying than dodging the lightning bolts. I think I did them in sets of 50 and took a break at the screen with the inn.
playing another jrpg masterpiece on a handheld ^_^ the latter is persona4 the golden
this is really a HUGE exclusive for Sony platforms. Vita is gonna sell like hot cakes when this releases.
Lets hope it does. i really hope people give the Vita more support; it deserves much more sales then it has been selling. It is truly such a great system. Check out Killzone Mercenary, Soul Sacrifice if u havnt already btw
it's not a Vita exclusive though... the Vita version will of course be the more favoured version on n4g but everywhere else, people will buy the 2-in-1, €40, PS3 version.
not the japanese, they love RPG on handhelds. and the gorgeous FFX on Vita is dream come true for many fans.
I think its a great feature, the 2 in 1 purchase idea. But I think it really hurts the Vita. Had this been exlusive to the Vita it would've made the console more of a contender to the 3ds this year. Releasing it on PS3 as well tho... it shouldve been a Vita exlusive in the east, like how Tales Of Symphonia was a gamecube exclusive in the west
I am UNBELIEVABLY excited to be able to play these masterpieces on the go! Final Fantasy X is my favourite videogame of all time and it holds so many childhood memories, and I actually found X-2 very enjoyable! Coming from the UK, I am SO excited to replay both X and X-2, beat the Dark Aeons again, and FINALLY get a chance to have a go on the International Version of X-2 with the new Dresspheres and Last Mission!
Right there with you buddy, FFX is my favorite game as well. Just never gets old.
The story, characters, world, music, sphere system, weapon creating, Blitzball, monster arena/capture, ultimate weapon hunting, aeon gathering, etc. It just has so much to offer every play through. It really is a masterpiece, and I will continue to play through it over and over for years to come. FFX marked the end of SquareSoft, and they went out with a BANG!
great gameplay, beautiful music, meh characters, meh story, god-awful voice acting (which I let slide seeing it's the first Final Fantasy with voice acting......everything but that dreadful balcony scene). Even though I wasn't a huge fan of this game it will be good to replay. Don't get why they choose to do X-2 though, it was pedofile the game and had horrible gameplay....oh well 2 games 1 price can't go wrong with that at all =] Day 1 ps3
wow it looks like the FFXIII game engine Crystal Tools
It looks good, but not nearly THAT good. If they'd redone it in the Crystal engine, it would have taken years to do.
oh I see kk and thank you for a decent comment unlike the people disagreeing for me for no reason and the reply comment that not rely a answer
So, I'm confused... Will X-2 be in the Vita version as well, or...?
No, those are separate games for Vita.
A clearer answer : ps3 and vita will get both FFX and FFX-2 BUT ps3 will have both on the same disc. They will be sold separately on the vita.
this is amazing. The only question I have now is vita or ps3?
I'm definitely getting PS3 first, then I'll get it for the Vita. :]
I'm going to get both for the Vita first, and then for the PS3. Mainly because I'm not at home as much these days thanks to being a teacher! At least I'll be able to play on my break times! >_<
I really hope they sell the Vita versions for 20 each, i dont see myself pay 40 for each thats overkill.
I hope it's that cheap, too, with some cross-play, because I plan on getting it for both systems.
Only Final Fantasy im going to enjoy on my PS3 pulled many hours on the PS2 with this title im going to do it again.
So this is the trailer that is releasing on Monday. I was hopeing it was like the Okami HD trailer showing off the changes. For example http://www.youtube.com/watc... That was a good trailer it got people excited. Still I can't wait for it.
Good I hope this comes to Vita someday,.. Maybe it is just me but that wind spell ,.. (on some of the optional stuff on the Wii,.. just devastated me),.. It would be so nice if I could draw it on the screen,.. I'll probably get the PS3 version to see how it is supposed to work,.. but Id still rather get it on the Vita,.. it is like perfect for it.
As soon as I heard that piano.... memories poured into my brain like I had recovered from amnesia. I forgot how great the soundtrack was. Gotta get this
Love that soundtrack.
as well as To Zanarkand, the song Wandering Flame is one of my favourite game tunes of all time.
"Phantoms" is absolutely beautiful too. It's been too long since I've heard anything new from Junya Nakano. Some other faves of mine: "Travel Agency", "Spira Unplugged", "Thunder Plains", "To The End of the Abyss", "Final Battle", "Assault", "Macalania Woods", "Blitz-Off", "The Splendid Performance", "Movement in Green", "Challenge", "This is Your Story", "The Sending", "Calm Before the Storm", "Via Purifico", "Besaid", "Ending Theme". I mean, I love every note of music in this soundtrack, but those are definite highlights for me. Aw man can't wait.
FFX was my first FF game and I will always love it. So I am pumped to play this game again day 1, again. Definitely a purchase for me.
No release date yet? Can't see the videos because im on a crappy Nokia Lumia :( Worst. Phone. Ever.
Dual audio by any chance?
that "what can I do for you" really killed the mood of the trailer...
Is this Dan Cousens by any chance? Haha. I loved it! :D
Masterpiece. My favorite FF.
lol, "this may be our last chance." why does that sound like is referring to Square Enix this time?
idk I just cant stand Tidus for some reason.
Not enough love for X-2 but a tantalizing trailer nonetheless. They haven't revealed any images from X-2 or anything so I presume they still have a bit more work to do on it.
