    No one but Japan got the international edition, right? They should advertise the “new” added features and whatnot. (since this trailer doesn’t seem to be for Japan looking at the language).
    I remembered that my cousin rented a PS2 for FFX. He actually bought the game, but no memory card, so he left the system on when he stopped playing lol

    • Pyrotek85

      That would be nerve wracking for me lol, leaving it run without saving, especially after you’ve invested dozens of hours.

    • SHINJI

      Europe got the International version.

      • Detrimont

        only of X, not of X-2

    • KingRuff

      I went through that same thing with KH2 when I first got my PS2 and my parents forgot to buy a memory card. I was not gonna sit through that overly long opening twice.

      • Ronldbx6

        I remember when I got my first PS2 as well. I didn’t have a memory card. I was playing Kingdom Hearts and had to keep replaying the beginning every time I left to go somewhere.

    • Daniel Curtis

      Haha we’ve all been there back in the PS2 days, leaving it on all the time. I had over 100 hours on KH by the time I beat it :p

  • powerprotoman

    wait tidus still wants us tobelive a game about a girl who has to not only live within the shadow of her father but also come to terms with her untimely death in order to preserve the worlds peace all the while tagging along a certified idiot who basicly acts like an entitled pissant is HIS story…ya uh-huh and x-2 didnt scream charlies angles

  • マッシュー

    Listening to “To Zanarkand” again after so long… All these feelings coming back. I’m so ready to sell my soul for this game.

  • TheExile285

    Trailer is too short :/

  • DongT

    yaaay i can finally play these games, though unfortunately i spoiled the major plot points for myself long ago :I

    • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

      The story in X was horrible, you didn’t spoil much. Oh know, I am dead the whole time…what?

      • If THAT’s what you got from the game’s supposedly “bad” story, then you weren’t really paying attention. No, Tidus wasn’t dead all along. That’s a half-assed (and misguided) explanation people use to oversimplify a plot point which is quite hard to grasp, but is clearly aluded to through the game. I admit FFX’s plot is quite convoluted, but there were interesting concepts running through the sometimes messy narrative. At least it all makes sense by the end, unlike more recent entries in the series.

        • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

          That’s the take home point of X, its about a scared summoner that needs help taming aeons and has a serious inferiority complex along the way. There is no drive, why do I care for these characters, what makes Yuna so weak, how if he is dead, does he accomplish all this, the story makes no sense, and gave me, and many others no reason to care for the characters. That makes the story horrible. And I in no way defend the abomination that is 13. I am sorry if I grew up when FF’s stories were actual well written, and connected you. Something that was lost over 15 years ago.

  • I was almost crying listening to “To Zanarkand” when suddenly… “What can I do for you?”. Mood killer.

    • While I think “To Zanarkand” is *slightly* overrated and “Real Emotion” a “fun enough” pop beat, your post still made me laugh. x)

    • maggosh

      What, were you expecting Robotnik’s theme?

    • That’s X-2 for you.

  • Nee Nee

    Why release them as 2 separate titles on the Vita? Legit just wondering.

    • Manny Being Manny

      Lack of space on a Vita card.

      • Pyrotek85

        I think as long as the price per game is the same, most people won’t be too annoyed. I wouldn’t be at least.

        • DarthSithZero

          I think the retail ps3 version will be 39.99 so the both vita games should cost 19.99 each but I wont think will be possible

      • DarthSithZero

        Umm Mgs HD collection have 2 games

        • DawnWolf

          If Square wants to keep the Vita version at the same quality as the PS3 version… it’ll be a lot bigger data wise than MGS HD collection. It’s not an issue to have both on one disk for PS3 cause of Blu-ray, but the Vita cards have smaller limits.

        • But FAR less fmv which takes a lot of space.

    • Im kinda glad Im only getting X for the Vita.

  • Rogerrmark

    Short and barely shows the new 3-D models.Just hope it’s not released only in December. Gonna buy mainly for the X-2 International+Last Mission.

    • Detrimont

      if you actually compare with the original, it does look improved, and that’s what they are, improved(/updated), not new

      • Them being ‘improved’ is debatable, at least for their faces.

        • Rogerrmark

          They were,but the trailer is so short and focused on that CG that barely shows anything at all.

          • Well sort of, the original game actually used two sets of models and swapped them out for different scenes. Square took the higher quality models and cleaned up their textures, but then took out some detail in the face for whatever reason.
            From the original game, Lulus better model:

            And concerning the face, this was posted on another forum (the lips seem to also have been changed a lot):

          • They all remind me very strongly of how Type-0’s facial features are modeled and animated.

          • Ehren Rivers

            Actually, if the original set of news is to be believed this game had all of its textures completely remade. (Owing, in part, to the fact that the original X was basically a giant painting you were walking on and contained little in the way of actual objects) They kept the artstyle, obviously, and as a result the characters look mostly the same. I personally don’t see much difference in features aside from reshaping (like getting rid of Tidus’ butterball face), but I suppose we all see things differently.

          • Textures did get redone and enhanced, and hopefully the environments got overhauled too along with much of everything else.

          • DarthSithZero

            Wow they upgrade Lulu’s breasts

  • wow…that was the opposite of exciting. lol. still excited for the game, though.

  • Sydney Losstarot

    I don’t want to try to go for the ultimate weapons again. It took forever to get Lulus ultimate weapon, dodging those stupid lightning bolts sucked.

    • DurableTomb

      Here’s this, if it will still work in the new version.

    • Bloodios

      Just use the hole, it’s a whole lot less time consuming.
      One a side note, I wonder how much money Square Enix would make if they put up an “unlock all Celestial Weapons” kind if DLC for $9.99?

    • fenix7

      That’s just evil… I don’t think I dodged even 1 lightning bolt lol. I got fried a lot :( HOpe u can get the weapon in a different way.

    • Oh yah, I remember I couldn’t get farther from 20 but one day I stayed on a spot, studied it’s pattern and with my bro we were repeating the number count staring at the screen with souless eyes, it must have been a creepy sight from a 3rd person view.

  • Charles

    What can you do for me? Release this and verses XIII tomorrow.

  • Detrimont

    wonder why they used they japanese version of “real emotion”

    • Karn McCloud

      Because it’ll likely release in Japan first, much like we saw the Japanese version of KH1.5HDR with the English VAs

      • Detrimont

        that’s obvious, what i’m meaning, is that they used the japanese song, yet it’s the english(technically german(i think)) trailer

        • Karn McCloud

          That’s what i mean, they likely made the trailer for Japan then changed only the text for the respective countries. Easier than releasing an English trailer with the English version, German version with the German version and so on.

  • Quickly everyone! Jump aboard the Hype Train!

  • IshimaruKaito

    hmmmmm……im suddenly remembering *HOW HARD IT WAS* to beat shinra at that sphere break game!!!! OMG!!

  • Ben Chau

    Final Fantasy XIII HD Remaster coming soon on the PS4

    • Detrimont

      XIII is already in HD

      • Andy

        Damn this made my day.

        So I’m guessing Square is gonna jump the gun and make X and X-2 at $39.99 a pop on the Vita..

      • Bloodios

        FullHD remaster then ;)

  • Go2hell66

    Well not the most spectacular trailer in the world, still pretty hype

  • DesmaX

    Hm… I think they decided to remaster X-2 too just recently

  • gamerdude

    Well since you are asking… you can keep your old clothes on. That you “could do for me”.

    So excited to play X again the endgame in that just rocks. Getting the ultimate weapons was so much fun/torture =)

    But ugh the voice acting is just… no. I wish there was an option to turn it off and read just the subtitles like in old FF games. I dread few scenes where great dramatic effect is being sucked away by these amateurs. The suteki na de scene in particular is so visually arresting it’s jarring to have that VA stampede all over it.

    • Tyler Harwood Simpson

      Amateurs? Excuse me? Are you a professional?

      James Arnold Taylor is an amateur? Tara Strong is an amateur? John DiMaggio is an amateur?

      Go and dub the f–king game yourself if you think the voice acting is so low rank.

      • Yvonne Tsang

        You don’t need to be a politician to know that Bush sucked.

        Tidus and Yuna’s voiceovers were pretty shitty, and unfortunately they had quite a few lines in the game. Yuna’s VA did improve tremendously going into X-2, but her performance in X was pretty dismal. The rest of the cast was quite good, but not everyone’s performances were exceptional.

      • gamerdude

        Pretty much what Yvonne said lol.

  • Christopher D Stanley

    um this is a trailer for the ps vita, not the ps3. the ps3 is a hell of a lot more crisp. Here are some images from the ps3 version (HUGE DIFFERENCE)

    • From the brief preview picture of the official trailer site, it appears that’s the trailer they want us to see to represent the PS3 and Vita equally.

  • The website’s trailer just went live…technically. It’s being marked as private, and is a youtube video of all things.

    Isn’t that just an itty bit sloppy? Square usually incorporates videos on official websites directly in the site’s coding, don’t they?

    Its public now, but its still just a youtube stream. Odd.

  • I’m actually really looking forward to these. I bought my Vita last year and these two games (well, mainly FFX) are gonna spice my Vita pretty well. Besides I really loved FFX on PS2 and I’m so happy to get to play it again.

    I hope we’ll see these sooner than we think >_>

  • komiko12

    I hope that graphics are on par with FFXIII. Since the main point of this re-release is the HD graphics, then they should use FFXIII as a standard.

    • Tyler Harwood Simpson

      That would require them to remake the game from the ground up. This is a re-master, similar to Devil May Cry HD or Metal Gear Solid HD.

      • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

        They’re putting in a lot more effort than just upscaling the resolution of many HD ports which has stretched and ugly textures. Probably the most effort I’ve seen in a HD remaster, given the fact it was announced about 2 years ago?

  • DDanny

    They really should advertize X-2 international’s features. The Creature Create system alone is huge, and so is Last Mission.

    • Tyler Harwood Simpson

      This is more of a teaser than a trailer. Those things will probably come down the line when they have a solid date.

  • Random Nothing

    The second I heard the nostalgically awesome, “Listen to my story…” cue emotional tidal wave of memories and good times. I can’t wait to experience that again.

  • ShadowDivz

    I wonder how i get one of those fur vitas.
    Is it real or fake fur?

  • KingGunblader

    I’m excited to play this, especially since it includes X-2, which I’ve never played. It looks kind of silly but I’m PUMPED. I wanna kill those Dark Aeons.

    • Sylveria

      The tone and plot and basically everything about X-2 is incredibly stupid… but it’s the best playing FF game made this century as far as combat and character development.

  • Zero Shift

    Is it just me or is Tidus’ voice different? It sounds more masculine than I remember lol.

    • Sylveria

      Sounds exactly the same to me.

    • That’s Tidus’ narrator voice. The game is basically a flashback narrated by Tidus up till Zanarkand. At that point he’s wiser and more mature.

  • Shinky

    I wonder if I am the only person thats more excited for Final Fantasy X-2 HD than Final Fantasy X HD.
