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.
