Good news, except for the 70% part. I was hoping it would be a lot more complete.
bakagaijin78  +   521d ago
Yeah, my thoughts too. Part of me was hoping for a summer release, but it looks like this probably won't happen. Oh well.

- Cross-save support is under consideration

Now we're talking.

Sounds like either a late summer or fall launch, no?

I'm glad they're not forcing Vita owners to purchase both if they want a hardcopy of the game. I don't want both. I couldn't dropkick X-2 far enough away from me. It was the trumpet that signified the downward spiral of SquareEnix.

I hope this sells like crazy. I want a return of the old. If they're out of touch with the fans but they know the old PS1 games are hugely popular then remake them. Hell, FFVIII and FFIX have held up pretty well over time and may not need as much of a work over that FFVII would need. However, if they did remake FFVII and they nailed it they would have a game of the year on their hands; a console seller, should it be exclusive.

one important thing FFX is missing and that's new game plus,
hopefully they add it this time, i mean who wouldn't want to experience the amazing story multiple times without wasting too much time grinding, obtaining best weapons/armors again etc?

Edit: what's with the disagrees and the mad wannabe FF fan below? great games like MGS, Dark/Demon's Souls, Resident Evil had new game plus or a similar function that let you keep most your equipments and stuff for the next playthrough, it makes the game more fun and have great replay value plus it's freaking optional!

are you dumb?
using ng+ if you have completly maxxed out your stats,that means you can kill every fiend in 1 hit and that is no fun.
in a final fantasy game grinding is a major thing to do,and if you dont like that you shouldnt play ff,.
SE wont add ng+,its only remaster in hd.

no ff game I have played except for ff13 and 13-2 have ng+.

Square enix could have it so that the enemies scale with new game+, you shouldn't bash people for features that they want. In my opinion new game+ would be a great idea and it sounds like a lot of fun. Once you're older, you'll understand more how much valuable time is.
Heisenburger  +   521d ago
What's your problem?

You do realize that you have to BEAT the game to unlock any ng+ mode, correct?

Soo... your point is moot, considering that new game plus requires you to do what you say ff is all about.

X-2 has new game plus(only certain things carry over). The first obviously doesn't but plenty of JRPG franchises have implemented NG+ successfully. Persona 4 Golden and Disgaea 4 are the most prominent of recent releases and they both have NG+ options.

final fantasy never popular fo the "new game +" and i prefer it stay that way

FFX is my favorite RPG ever, but I could never figure out blitzball. Because of that, I could never get Wakka's celestial weapon.
Kur0  +   521d ago
can you imagine if they added blitzball as online multiplayer?
BlaqMagiq24  +   521d ago
Good news, and it's good Square let people know right away why X and X-2 are split up now. They may be PS2 remasters but they're still massive games.
uuaschbaer  +   521d ago
I'd die for a multiplayer battle game mode. Won't happen but would be years of fun.
uuaschbaer  +   520d ago
Apparently nobody wants to fight with their party against a friend's.
Run_bare  +   521d ago
yay, can't wait to summon Yojimbo again :)
clintagious650  +   521d ago
Yojimbo reminds me of Odin. Badazz summons.
DS36  +   521d ago
Anima is my favorite
Lucreto  +   520d ago
But it will cost you a bit to summon.
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   521d ago
Day one buy for FFX for sure...
Hellsvacancy  +   521d ago
Same as mate
Azurite  +   521d ago
- Japanese voices will be available
Nice.
JAMurida  +   521d ago
Was just about to post that. I'm glad they understand the need of this feature.
frjoethesecond  +   520d ago
If there isn't a unique subtitle track for the Japanese audio then It's basically pointless.
Azurite  +   520d ago
It is quite annoying when the subtitles aren't real translations but transcripts of the dub (or what the dub would have been in Yakuza's case).

Any game that has identical PS3 AND VITA versions, Cross Game Save is a MUST!
elda  +   521d ago
Yoichi Wada has resigned as CEO of Square-Enix,that has to be the greatest news I heard this morning,I'm surprised N4G doesn't have this news up already.
knifefight  +   521d ago
It's been on N4G for several hours -- long before your comment.

OOOHH...thank you sooo much.
josephayal  +   521d ago
Everybody want it for xbox 360 too, I hope it will come
PsnGammer21  +   521d ago
Day one for sure for the vita versions but if there is cross save day one for ps3 as well
Tei777  +   521d ago
70% finished? I guess its a late summer/september release. It'd awesome if we could get in July though.
supremacy  +   521d ago
poor excuse on why the vita version are sold seperate.

The 2 games can be packaged together in a special two game holder box.

As for download i am sure there's nothing a 32gb card couldn't handle, i hate when they use these shady practices.

I forgot what the excuse for MGS peace walker HD skipping the vita was; sigh still very much interested in this game though.
Snookies12  +   521d ago
PLEASE put in cross save functionality.... I don't want to have to get everyone's Sigils and Crests on BOTH versions lol.
Blackcanary  +   520d ago
Can't wait to play X and X-2 again. I loved X-2 cause the battle system reminded me of FF 7 and 8 when it came to the menus. And you leveled up like you did in FF 7 and 8 by grinding there was no stupid grid.

It would be better to release this in Summer.

this game will just get overshadowed by the release of PS4, other big games out there
knifefight  +   520d ago
The release of Final Fantasy IX wasn't overshadowed by PS2 and the release of Final Fantasy XII wasn't overshadowed by the PS3. Some franchises maintain selling power regardless of new system launches.
iWishTifaWasReal  +   520d ago
keep in mind. that was the era when People actually cared about a new Final Fantasy game.

this time its not gonna work especially with Square-Enix being an ass right now and *not to mention FFX|X-2 HD isn't even a new entry to the series. Its simply just a Remastered. SE obviously wouldnt advertise the crap out of a Remastered game.
knifefight  +   520d ago
I guess we'll find out :)
porkChop  +   519d ago
If they're splitting up the Vita games because of space, fine. But you better not be charging full price for each. They should be no more than $20 each. And I still don't understand why they couldn't just put both cartridges in the same package? Even if they have to charge $45 instead of $40.
