Square Enix has just shown off a preview of their new HD remake of Final Fantasy X. Final Fantasy X was the first game in the series to come to the PlayStation 2 and it won the hearts of many avid fans. Now to everyone’s excitement, the game will be remastered, and brought to the portable Playstation Vita. The preview doesn’t show off much, except for the main characters, Tidus and Yuna, standing alongside Bahamut and Yojimbo. While their changes seem a bit subtle, you can notice that their colors are more vibrant, and their character’s textures are much more smooth.
For those of you with a PS Vita, you can now take a trip down memory lane as you progress through the world of Final Fantasy X again. You can help Tidus find his way back to Zanarkand, you can help Yuna collect her army of Aeons, and you can help the group destroy Sin in order to bring peace to all of Spira. All of this while seeing how Square Enix has changed the game while maintaining all of the important aspects.
The remake of Final Fantasy X HD was announced around 2 years ago, and now we’re finally seeing it come to light. For those of you who don’t own a PlayStation Vita, I would suggest holding off on buying one because it seems that there are some price-cuts going around. Japan has just cut the price of its PlayStation Vita systems to only 19,980 yen, or $212. Also, if you don’t feel like playing the game on a small 5-inch screen, the remake should also be heading on over to the PlayStation 3.
We’re still not sure when Final Fantasy X HD will be released, but we may hear more about it during the PlayStation meeting on Wednesday. What I would love to hear more about in the future is if there has been any progress made for the HD remake of Final Fantasy 7. I know that that’s something fans have been looking forward to.
