Lost in Translation: Final Fantasy X - geimaku

geimaku: "With the re-release of Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster, it would be nice to tell you what exactly is new in the package and what was already there back in the old Playstation 2. This game is one of the weaker examples of software revisions and updates before DLC was commonplace in the industry, with Square Enix being one of the most fond of such practices." (3DS, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, PC, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Well, I was having a similar thought. I'll start with FINAL FANTASY X:

Square Enix have confirmed that FINAL FANTASY X HD REMASTER will be based on its International version, now that means that it'll almost certainly include the following:
. Expert Sphere Grid;
. Dark Aeons & Penance;
. Minor changes to dialogue;
. New Equipment and Weapons abilities (such as Ribbon).

Now for FINAL FANTASY X-2 HD, where there are two different arguments:

We also have confirmation that FINAL FANTASY X-2 HD REMASTER will be based on its International versions, however, there has been no mention of the 'Last Mission' part of the game. The original was known as FINAL FANTASY X-2 INTERNATIONAL + LAST MISSION which tells me that either we won't get the 'Last Mission' part of the game in the HD REMASTER, especially as it was never recorded with English dialogue, and I don't believe they'll bring the voice actors back. This means that we will almost certainly get the following:
. General tweaks to the look, feel, speed and dialogue;
. Three extra Dresspheres;
. New Garment Grids;
. Creature Create system (including FFX characters e.g. Seymour).

Now, the only confirmation for all of this information is the link below. However, within the article (written by Ben Bateman - Central Community Manager for Square Enix), he mentions the following:

"The International version of FINAL FANTASY X-2 never made it to European shores before, so there’s quite a chunk of additional content for you to dive into!"

Where he says, "quite a chunk of additional content", is he referring to Last Mission (which is a huge chunk), or just the International version? Because the International version doesn't actually have a MASSIVE amount of additional content. The link is below.

What do you guys think?

Who knows. It's all pretty confusing..
Anyway, ai'm looking forward to the HD collection. I'll play the shit outta them.

Me too!! FINAL FANTASY X was my favourite game of all time ever, and I can't wait to be able to 100% them both again (and even be able to grind on the go!)
