Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster still doesn’t have a release date, either in Japan or in the west, but Square Enix say that the game is headed to North America “this winter”.

 

Square Enix provided the update over at the PlayStation Blog this morning.

 

In case you missed the compilation’s latest trailer, you can catch it here.

    2014 confirmed then, I wonder why they are putting it out so close to LR:FF13 though.

    • Ava1on

      Doesn’t sound like anything is confirmed for 2013 or 2014. It’s still very much up in the air.

      • 하세요

        Seeing how winter technically begins during the last few days of December, it would either be ridiculously late 2013 (i.e might as well be 2014) or just 2014. No complaints though, I have hella games to play until then.

          Heck yeah, I’ve got
          -GTA V
          -Pokemon X
          -Tales of Xillia
          -FFXIV
          -KH 1.5
          -Watch Dogs

          Oh, god that’s gonna carry over…

      • Herok♞

        we are going into Winter 2014 since like Haseyo said it only lasts about 2 weeks and that is the weeks of Christmas and New Years so it would be coming out in Jan at the earliest and March at the latest.

  • Mental

    Good to see the game isn’t too far off in the future.

  • Raharu95

    NUH!!! I am not ready DX

  • Aurizen

    2014 is still winter… so im sure its delayed for obvious reasons… from “2013″ to “this winter”.. square is bullshitting. I would be fine with a December date.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Yeah this here.

  • Go2hell66

    this winter doesn’t mean anything to me

  • ShindoW

    Amazon has said late December for awhile, so I’m hoping that’s true.

  • Hawk666

    Where’s my FFIX remake/remaster, S-E? =/

    • LightZero

      download it from PSN. FFIX is a PS1 game and it wouldn’t look good if it got HD-ified

      • Hawk666

        Yeah. IIRC, PS1 games are always a problem in HD collections/remasters. So, the only way it’s a real full remaster. But unfortunatelly we are talking about S-E…=/

    • SlickRoach

      Would’ve loved to see FFIX in HD.

      • Vesperion

        A game like that would have to be rebuilt from scratch. Love FFIX though

        • Anime10121

          Well to be fair, he did say remake/remaster…

          • Vesperion

            It’s more directed to the topic of discussion not just SlickRoach

    • Marcelo Gouvea

      Square Enix: “Uhhhh we will…look into it. Here, have an iOS game ; )”.

      • Hawk666

        “Prease be exitedo!”

        =/

      I don’t know if theres a “HD” Version of FFIX or anything, but they’re HD Mods for FF VII and FF VIII, so the possibilities of seeing an HD version by fans could happen, but since it’s a underrated game, it might not happen anytime soon. Knowing the way Square-Enix has been with Final Fantasy, I doubt we’ll ever see a remaster version of any of these games at all by them. :/

  • Espoir

    Can’t people wait for JUST A FEW MORE MONTHS?! Jeez, all of us are going to get to play the damn game >_>

    • Vesperion

      Everyone just want’s to know a date

      • Espoir

        Winter means December, January or February. Jesus, we’ve all waited this long, why can’t people wait a few more months?

        • Vesperion

          Still isn’t concrete. Just looking for a date, but i don’t really see anyone going “crazy” over waiting though.

          • JuhRo

            Yeah.. cause seeing “This winter” reminds everyone they said “Fall 2013″ and… we’re kind of afraid it’s going to be “Late Summer 2014″.

          • Vesperion

            Lol well i guess anything could happen. I just wonder why the game sounds like it’s getting closer to lighting returns.

    • Covnam

      I think the long development time is just exceeding what people perceive the dev time should take for a remaster (what, two years so far?) which is making people antsy. Especially with these open ended release estimates. A solid date would satisfy a lot of people as it would finalize things.

    The perfect christmas gift for me!

    “Winter” probably means January or February =)

    • Anime10121

      Definitely not February, thats when Lightning gets her month. So probably January (hopefully December, but considering Winter generally starts the last week of the yeah, I’m calling Jan).

  • http://youtube.com/RyeANDRinGaming B-Dazzle

    Great, now I don’t even know if i’ll actually get the game at all. :/

  • Ronldbx6

    Since global warming, I forgot what’s winter is anymore. Gonna need to be more specific with that release date.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    How long does it actually take? Its not like they’re adding anything new to it.

    • Distant_arcana

      Apparently they added a new 30 minute ending to one them?

  • PhoenixDownX99

    If Lightning has a Yuna outfit in Lightning Returns, won’t they do something like with what they did with Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy and The 3rd Birthday? First run copies (of The 3rd Birthday) had a code for Lightning’s Aya Brea costume to be unlocked in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. This makes me think that they might release the FFX HD Collection a little after Lightning Returns and that the first run of FFX HD collection might include a code for Yuna’s costume to be unlocked in LR. Then again I’m probably just thinking about this game so much that I’m making excuses for Square? XD

  • Neppygear

    Guys, don’t be a dirty ice cream. Although I know the world of real emotion has surrounded me, I won’t give into it.

  • http://www.myspace.com/Juan_Rod bluejuan85

    dang I was super hyped for this since I really want to relive my first FF game again on both PS3 and Vita. well I’ll continue to wait then luckily some awesome games are coming to tie me over till then.

  • Aristides

    Smells like January… or perhaps Teen Spirit for that matter… lol
