This week’s Jump! issue confirms that the Playstation 3 version of Final Fantasy X’s upcoming HD remaster will be bundled with its direct sequel, Final Fantasy X-2. As for its Playstation Vita counterpart, both games will be sold separately.
Jump! also confirms both games will be of their PAL/International versions, both of which had been only released in regions outside of North America: Final Fantasy X: International was released in Japan and as the game’s only localized European version; Final Fantasy X-2: International + Last Mission was released only in Japan.
The International version of X includes a completely redesigned sphere grid and the Dark Aeon and Penance superbosses; X-2 International + Last Mission includes gameplay tweaks, three new dresspheres, a Coliseum battle mode, and a special post-script dungeon called Yadonoki Tower.
Retail prices have yet to be announced.
Final Fantasy X HD will be available for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita later this year.
This right here is the best news we’ve gotten from Square in years. I’m so excited and I was hoping they would do this.
My Tomb Raider collectors edition came with a game case! I REAL game case! I’m so happy I could cry. Except not really. But it’s just one more game that doesn’t have to sit in a statue or art book. =D
for reblogging, by request
This happened in my home town. I’m devastated by it, and the woman who owns LCCR is out there looking for the lost cats, not even worrying about the personal possessions she lost.
The entire non-profit organization was run by this wonderful woman, and it was a sanctuary for cats that were abandoned because they were seniors. At the time of the fire there were 60+ cats in the home, and the latest number is around 30 of them did not make it out alive. The rest are either missing, or being treated in the pet hospital down the road. The hospital is overwhelmed with 4 or 5 cats to a kennel, and staff are working tirelessly. The kitties are doing okay, but some of them are badly burned.
There is a fund being set up to help take the burden off of the vet bills. (Think, 25+ cats, at least, being treated for smoke inhalation and burns. One of them 20 years old.)
I know it’s asking a lot, but if anyone could donate, it would be wonderful. The paypal information is on the Facebook page.
I’m reblogging this from my personal blog, because it’s important to me, even though I know that I don’t post things like this, but this happened in my home town, and I want to do something to help, so even if you can just signal boost, please do.
I worked and I didn’t want to stream it halfway through. Therefore I haven’t actually seen any of the new gameplay footage.
First thing I have to get off my chest is “Are you fucking kidding me Square Enix?” You decided to show off something that got leaked 6 fucking months ago, then bring the director of Final Fantasy out to tease fans… AGAIN?! WTF. I, me, this girl here, has been a Final Fantasy fan since I could play video games. This infuriates me. Why even come on stage if you’re going to pull shit like that? Square, you’ve done this like 3 years in a row. You’re losing fans by teasing, you’re losing life-long fans by teasing. This has to stop. Versus has been in development since the PS3 launched, and 8 god-damn years later all we know is that it’s still in development, while a different branch in your studio is pushing out Lightning games like it’s the end of the fucking world. GET YOUR RESOURCES TOGETHER.
Second, Sony, you’ve had plenty of time to plan this press conference, and the console seems to be very much ready to be unveiled, yet you don’t drop a price point, give a solid release date or even show off the look of the new console. Nintendo was on the ball. The day the WiiU was announced we got a price point and a release date. What are you guys doing.
Now, what I was impressed with, was the new controller. Integrated PSMove was a smart idea, people don’t want to pay $100 for something the Wii did 8 years ago. I don’t care that much about the new touch pad, but we’ll see how that goes, and if you pull it off right (ie: the same touch navigation/keyboard as the Vita), it will work well. What I absolutely adore however, is the new share button. Creating an integrating streaming system into the console was a smart idea, and is about as innovative as you’ve been in a while. Kudos Sony. I want to be able to upload directly to YouTube and take stills while streaming is happening, and so far it looks promising.
I will add more as I watch the conference and see the devs take the stage. All in all, I am impressed with the new console/controller, but Sony could have done better with the conference.
