More Dazzling Screenshots Of Final Fantasy X In HD

By Spencer . November 11, 2013 . 2:45am


We’re near the release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and there’s no reason to keep the Magus Sisters a secret. Yuna can find this Aeon off the beaten path in the Calm Lands.


Final Fantasy X HD has the Expert Sphere which was added to Final Fantasy X International and the PAL version. This sphere grid gives players more customization options from the beginning since all of the characters start in the center relatively close by to each other. This grid also has extract abilities that basically act as the Sphere Distillers from vanilla Final Fantasy X.

    Is this game pure Jap? I’ve read some threads that the Int’l version on PS2 has a language option in which you can change the menu and subtitle to English. Is that true?

    • Arizato

      Nope, that’s not true. Can’t speak for the japanese versions but it’s not possible in the english ones.

    • no. However there is a english version coming out soonish.

    • Heropon

      Yes , in international PS2 version ,it had EN option for FFX but FFX-2 didn’t .

    • Wappuli

      Japanese version of HD collection will have only Japanese audio and text if I remember correctly.
      Original X international had only English audio but Japanese and English Text.
      Original X-2 international had only English audio and Japanese text.
      Original Last mission had only Japanese audio and text.

    • Nitraion

      Yep just like onimusha dawn on dream you can change X international to eng text however their starting text is japanese so you have change the option first if i am not mistaken at first start of the game choose opt 2

      • Nice Boat Quatro

        Except even that option in Onimusha was only available in the North American version.

    • Nice Mikasa cosplay avatar.

  • potatoes

    It’s good to see that they’re still tweaking Tidus’s face. I like how they gave the eyes a bit more depth and reduced the puffiness in his cheeks but there’s an issue with the hair that I don’t know how to describe. The biggest flaw I see is that the NPCs haven’t received as big of a visual upgrade but that’s not a dealbreaker by any means. Overall, this is a damn impressive HD remaster. It’s a shame more companies don’t put this much effort into them.

    • Demeanor

      If only they added a bit more content in terms of skills, limit breaks, Aeon ultimate moves… T_T it would be perfect.

  • Harry Balzania

    This game reverse engineered my appreciation for JRPGs. Was the first I tried. Loved it. Then started trying other classics like golden sun, FF 7, FF Tactics etc

  • Rogerrmark

    Some characters kinda lost that bright in the eyes that makes them feel alive.Overall is way better though.

    And still no U.S release date. Sigh.

  • Detrimont

    so far… Lulu and seymour look the best in hd

  • Heropon

    Just release this and move on to FFXII inter please

    • 12 int. with the ‘job system’ in play. I’d reserve that day 1 for US release.

    • Ah, my first FF… I have so many good memories with that game. I’d love an HD remaster with the international version content, it’d make my life!

  • PuddlesPuddles

    Looks good, but I’m concerned that the Vita version may not run at the Vita’s native resolution. I suspect it may run at 720×408, like a lot of other games (Gravity Rush, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid HD, etc.), which would make it barely an upgrade from the PS2 version, at least in terms of resolution.

    • Wappuli

      Atleast according to one twitter post it will run at 960×544.

      • PuddlesPuddles

        Wow, if that’s true, it will look amazing. I’m crossing my fingers!

    • Chip

      They’ve actually emphasized the Vita as the better platform for this.

  • Isaac Newton

    It’s so beautiful so beautiful.
    You can have Lulu or Rikku but not my Yuna LOL.
    So you guys just stay away from my beautiful summoner! XD

  • So when will the US see this? Gamestop says December. But someone said that’s the Japanese date…

    • Brion Valkerion

      December is the place holder date. Japan isn’t getting this til after Xmas, so its a safe bet we won’t see this til… March is my guess since Lightning Returns is hitting in Feb. Would be great if we got it a bit sooner but later is a safer bet.

  • Even if I’ll get this for both my PS3 and my Vita, I sure wish this would also make it to the PC.

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    Can’t wait for Europe PS Vita Release! I’d buy it in any format, though a physical release would be far better :D

  • SpaceOfSoul

    I’ve never played FFX, though I own FFX-2 and I loved it. Story was a bit cheesy but, overall it was a good game.

    Though, now I’m not sure whether I should get this for the vita or the ps3.

    Does the vita come bundled with X-2? Or do I have to buy it separately? I remember reading something here that the PS3 version comes with FFX and FFX-2 while the vita you’ll have to buy separate.
    Only asking because the gamestop clerk said if I buy the ps3 version, I get the vita one for free.
    I feel like he’s wrong but it just got me confused

    • Brandonmkii

      The games will be separate on vita, but will cost as much together as the ps3 bundle version.

  • Monterossa

    2013-14 Game of the Year

  • Masa

    Game looks beautiful! Still remember the first time playing this back on the ps2 and being blown away, look like that’s gonna happen again soon, cant wait!

  • Thrasher429

    I can’t take it anymore *zerg rushes SE HQ* Give me a damn release date!!!

  • Xaltmas

    I hope SE shows some footage of the game running on a Vita soon. The fact that they have only shown the PS3 version is making me a bit nervous.

  • FlyingPony

    Nobody complain about Kimahri (blue lion thing) lacks of dressing or covering any vital area? Wakka? How about Tidus wearing wool and not armor plate when he’s gonna fight 10 feet monster later?

    I am not picking up fight or anything, but you see, how ridiculous some people can be over the “unpractical armor” that some chicks in games wear.

    • leingod

      That kinda complaining is just a stupid trend. It’ll go away. I hope.

    • Demeanor

      I never understood what Kimahri was supposed to be… (referring to the standard, “guided” paths on the original sphere grid) Tidus is a cross between swordsman, blitzball player and time mage, Yuna is a Summoner/White Mage, Lulu is a hot Black Mage, Rikku is a Thief, Wakka is… another blitzball player with an emphasis on status effects, could be considered an “archer”, sort of, Auron is a Samurai, but Kimahri? What is Kimahri? A Blue Mage, and??? How did you guys raise him?

      • Ixbran

        Kimahri is a Blue Mage + Dragoon Hybrid.

        • Demeanor

          I don’t remember any dragoon skills from the grid… got any advice for which abilities to teach him? Thnx!

          • Chip

            He has Jump and Lancet, classic Dragoon skills. But Jump is a default blue-magic skill

            Dragoons historically are little more than under-powered Warriors that compensate by evading and time-delayed critical attacks.

      • Chip

        Kimahri is basically Freelancer. He has freedom to learn any of the routes, and also has quicker access to some of the most powerful abilities in the game. The lateness at which this is available reflects the Freelancer style.

        I personally use him as a auxilery tanked white mage for when something is too powerful for Yuna to face, or as a second Thief.

    • Ixbran

      Everyone knows Kimahri’s is fan service to the Furry Community, one of the few male characters in gaming with much skin/fur exposure. Hell, he even has leather bonding’s too his outfit. ~<3

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Nobody in this game wears armors except for those soldiers you can beat in one hit.

      So as TeamFourStar taught us: Nudity makes you stronger. That really explains why in FF10-2 the outfits were so skimpy.

  • Did I just see the Magus Sisters? Hell yeah!

  • TheExile285

    Western release dates SE…..

  • Cyberjin

    release date…

  • DrakeClawfang

    HD graphics and Tidus’s FMV face still creeps me out. Much less than before but still.

  • John Lawson

    Why does the side characters still have flippers and close to no detail?
    Square Enix puts so much attention on the HD part but fails to fix what made the game look like crap back in ’01, is it really that hard to give side characters fingers or even make them look somewhat on par with the Protags?

  • popo123

    They need to fix that texture filter on Yuna and Tidus’ hair. It was great before when they showed the first screenshots of the HD upgrade but now it looks horrible, they don’t look like hair anymore. Look at Auron’s hair now, that should be how it looks like on everyone’s hair. All in all it looks awesome, I hope they update the textures on the summons too and smoothen them out cause it looks like they just upscaled them.

  • Ric Vazquez

    So mega-hyped for this, If you feel the same upvote!

  • Demeanor

    Oh no!!! Those three!!! XD In HD!

  • ishyg

    Since it’s the international version they remade, can we expect the Japanese copy to have English language as an option?

  • Cyril Murasakitsuyukusa

    Magus sisters! Yay! ^_^
