Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster Will Have International Dresspheres And Creature Creator

By Spencer . November 6, 2013 . 5:10pm

image Final Fantasy XIII-2 wasn’t the first game where you could have a monster instead of another party member. Final Fantasy X-2 International + Last Mission dabbled with that idea eight years earlier with the Creature Create system. Players can capture fiends here and use them in battle instead of say Yuna or Rikku.It’s also possible to capture other Final Fantasy X characters like Tidus, lulu, Kimahri, and even Seymour plus NPCs like Nooj.


“Yes, in addition to the Last Mission from Final Fantasy X-2, additional dresspheres and the Creature Creator will be included in the game. I believe this is the first time that these elements will be playable to Western gamers, so I hope you look forward to it,” producer Yoshinori Kitase said to Siliconera.


The International re-release has a Japanese festival themed dressphere and the Psychic job which has a time freeze spell as well as passive abilities that absorb elemental damage.

    Wahoo! I’ve been waiting for this. Psyckiers and Festival Goers are end-game breakers, but they’re more fun than Mascots.

  • Aemette

    The only verification I needed in order to buy X-2 HD and now I shall.

  • TheExile285


  • KingGunblader

    So when is it coming out in NA?! I mean, even Symphonia Chronicles has a release date locked down. :P

    • Crevox

      Too bad Symphonia Chronicles is just a resolution upscale. This isn’t much better, but they redid UI elements/font/some other stuff at the very least.

      • Sesshomaru

        Skits are still a void of silence then? I remember the music even lowered for the preparation of talking and nothing happened.

        • Crevox

          Of course, unless you set it to JP audio.

      • They actually redid the textures and models for this game. I thought that was obvious with all the comparison screenshots that they’ve been showing for many months now.

        • Crevox

          I never said they didn’t. Like I said, FFX HD is fine.

      • Masa

        You have no idea what you are talking about, so stop.

        • Crevox

          I do know what I’m talking about. Symphonia and its sequel are simply resolution mods; that’s it. There is no font changes, there is no texture updates, there is nothing. They upscaled it and are gonna release it. The only new cool thing is the fact that the US and other territories are getting the previously JP only PS2 version content, and it is dual audio. Graphically speaking it is the same, simply with upscaled resolution and redone mystic arte cutins. They SAID this.

          FFX-HD is updated with new models/textures/etc, but ultimately it is the same base game. Symphonia pales in comparison.

    • isn’t it coming out in december?

      • KingGunblader

        December 26th… in Japan.

  • Magnumsally

    about the only thing square is doing right

  • Vesperion

    This is so gonna hit in January

  • fyi1191

    BROTHER I choose you!


      It’s not very effective…

  • BizarreJelly

    They remind me of the powerpuff girls when they fly off in their psychic outfits.

  • Having played X-2 int I can say the Creature Creator makes the game 100x times more fun. You can even recruit some human characters!
    And the Monster Arena! And the Monster Endings! And the Last Mission!
    Probably one of my favorite re-releases in FF series (up there with IZJS). Reaaally worth it

    • Flamboyant Ass Nigga

      Never played it looking forward to it.

  • fool

    You could have monster party members in Dragon Quest V like…21 years ago!

  • vileBrenman

    Yes yes yes! I really was hoping we would get the international x2 this is so a day 1 buy. You know when they announce a date…

  • Aurizen

    We need a damn release date! SE is ruining everything. There should be no need to keep us in suspence.

  • disgaea36

    this is by far the best hd game to re released next to metal gear so excited for this oh boy can’t wait.

  • Nitraion

    I wish i can change battle theme song….
    they kinda boring IMO…
    everything else looks good…

  • Nanaki

    HURRAH! o/
    At last official confirmation! Great news.

  • popo123

    YES!! That was the most fun I’ve had in the game! It really made the game so much fun. It became kinda like Pokemon. I spend hundreds of hours because of the creature create training different characters and constantly fighting Major Numerus in the colosseum. I also loved the bonus dialogue Yuna, Rikku and Paine had with the new costumes! They were hilarious! Thank youuuu Squeenix!

  • Huzzah!!! Not a day one purchase for me as I have other games already taking priority but I WILL be buying this!

  • Syed Sameer Rahman

    Alright fine! Just take my money already!

  • So happy to be able to play this in HD, and we’re getting the international content as well. Definitely a day 1 when it comes out =^_^=

  • Slayven19

    So this is like tales of symphonia HD collection with how they are giving us the superior japanese version of the game in english. I’m cool with that, gives me more reason to play now.

  • Michael Connell

    So preordering this whenever it’s available.

  • Yggdr5

    “Yeah so we put like everything you could want into the remake except for dual-audio, because WHO would want that, am I right or what?”

    • SeventhEvening

      I can kind of understand that though. How many Final Fantasy titles have had duel audio in the past? As far as I can recall, exactly zero of them.

    • 하세요

      Jecht in anything but English is a no-go for me. His manliness is not expressed nearly as well in Japanese.

  • Vash bane

    my wish has been answered XD

    physics dresssphere :3

  • Sweeeetnessss! I’m hyped for this but then again sad that S-E is going under with them putting more into online and mobile.

  • cyberkinghardy

    I’m just curious. Does this have english menu and subtitle?

    • katzedan

      probably! This game will be released in North America and Europe, but the release date wasn’t announced yet!

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Only if one of those creatures is a Prinny. Otherwise, no deal.

    • Shady Shariest

      Fixed it for ya! ;:3

      • 3PointDecoupage

        Yeah, you cant mention a prinny without saying dood atleast twice per sentence, dood.

        • Shady Shariest

          Dood that is right on the code…

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        Thanks dood!

        • Shady Shariest

          No problem Dood! :3

      • Testsubject909

        Too late. He’s now on toilet cleanup duty.

  • Ronldbx6

    I never seen these forms before, cool.

  • Rogerrmark

    Desiring to play FFX-2 International+Last Mission for ages now.

    I’m gonna have a blast with Monster Creation and the extra stuff.

  • ShadowDivz

    I could replace pain with Lulu?

  • PersonaSpace

    The psychic dressphere was really all I wanted for X-2 HD. Last Mission and everything else is just icing on the cake. [unspecified US release date] can’t get here soon enough!

  • Pdugna

    duuudddeee those psychic dresspheres….freaking awesome.

  • Steven Higgins

    Finally. I’ve been waiting to play these two.

    • Testsubject909

      My odd suggestion: Play Final Fantasy X-2 before playing Final Fantasy X.

      You’re guaranteed to enjoy the two stories more if you go down that route.

      Playing X first might make you feel a bit bitter about certain details of X-2’s story.

      • Steven Higgins

        Oh, I meant the desspheres. I played the original releases when they came out.

  • Jeffrey Kuhl

    We already knew this! Give us a western release date!

  • Nana

    “Final Fantasy XIII-2 wasn’t the first game where you could have a monster instead of another party member.”

    Did you guys just get into videogames this generation? O.o THere have been a lot of games where you could have a monster instead of another party member. Dragon Quest V and VI? Legend of Mana? Ever heard of that era of videogames? o.O;

  • Setsu Oh

    will jp voices be available?

    • Testsubject909

      Which still leads me to wonder about the song Thousand Words.

  • Flamboyant Ass Nigga


  • Amber XLeonhart

    YAY NEW DRESS SPHERES!!!!!!! I loved that game! Can’t wait for it to come out!

  • Ceratisa

    Okay, but how about a release date?
