Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Coming To Asia With Traditional Chinese Subtitles

By Eugene . February 16, 2014 . 11:00am

Gamers in Asia who understand traditional Chinese and impatient for the release of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster won’t have to wait too long. The Asian release for the games will come February 27th in Japanese with traditional Chinese subtitles. This is just about a month ahead of the English release, which lands March 18th.

The news was broken at an event held in Singapore to mark the launch of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII earlier this week, with Senior Brand Manager Shinji Hashimoto and director & scenario writer for Lightning Returns Motamu Toriyama in attendance. The photos of the event are above and you can read the interview (which, fair warning, has some spoilers inside) here.

If you’re still wondering how the graphics are doing in the beefed up version, above are some screenshots of how the updated Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster look like. Wakka looks really funky in that group shot of the team protecting Yuna. “Uhh hey guys, where do I stand?”

 

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be available in North America March 18th, and Europe on March 21st.

    I wonder if they’ll offer Japanese voice downloads with this one?

      They probably won’t do it for older remasters like KH 1.5, 2.5 & X/X-2, but for newer ones like LR, Drakgenard 3, Bravely Default, and going forward.. LR’s dual audio DLC was huge though, like 5Gb for PS3, but around 2Gb on the 360 since there’s addt’l Jpn ver video.. The recent Left Behind DLC for the Last of Us is over 5Gb as well, I had to delete games to make room on the HDD.. would be nice if they’re included on disc since it takes a lot of space.. would be interested to see some Chinese screenshots for FFX/X-2.. I only got to before Operation Miihen so far, and almost near the end of Drakengard 3.. but won’t get my US ver of LR since it’s pre-ordered together w/ FFX from the S-E store..

        It’s worth noting that the HD release of X and X-2 is so close to the past PS2 ver. that people have hacked the Japanese ISO’s with the old English translation files and the game runs pretty flawlessly. So whether they offer it or not, doing so certainly wouldn’t be hard.

        Like you say, it probably comes down to file sizes. Unlike the XIIIs, X and X-2 kept the same lip synch from the original Japanese recordings, so it likely wouldn’t reach anywhere near the XIII file size of a patch. That said, they could still easily deem the extra size prohibitive.

        Did someone downvote because they think you want in disc dlc? -_-

    I don’t even need those English dubs. Give them Japanese subs to us!

    “If you’re still wondering how the graphics are doing in the beefed up version, above are some screenshots of how the updated Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster look like.”

    Perplexing. The problem is that almost all of the screenshots posted are from earlier builds of the game. Some characters have undergone dramatic changes so these do very little to indicate what the final build quality is like,

    “Wakka looks really funky in that group shot of the team protecting Yuna. ‘Uhh hey guys, where do I stand?’”

    Given the context of the scene in that screenshot, it’s not unwarranted. He’s reluctant to fight a high ranking member of a religion he’s been indoctrinated his entire life with. Maybe it’s best if Siliconera keeps from editorializing.
