It’s a great day for RPG fans on the PS Vita. Square Enix has announced that the PS Vita versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2 will be released alongside the PS3 versions on March 18, 2014. If you buy the physical version, you will be buying a physical copy of Final Fantasy X with a digital download voucher for X-2. You can also buy a combo set digitally over the PSN.
Square Enix also revealed a Collector’s Edition for the PS3. Sold exclusively through the Square Enix online store, it comes with a 40-page hardcover art book, a Blu-Ray disc containing 6 hours of the original Final Fantasy X soundtrack set to in-game imagery, five lithographs highlighting key moments from both FFX and FFX-2 and a game disc containing both games.
Additionally, Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD supports cross-saving. If you decide to pick up both the PS3 and PS Vita versions, you can transfer your save data over and carry on playing while in transit.
Seeing that the Collector’s Edition contains the original soundtrack on a Blu-Ray, hopefully as time goes on we could hear more about the possibility of both Final Fantasy X and X-2 allowing the choice between the original and adapted soundtracks. As someone who has heard some of the newest themes for Final Fantasy X, I am hoping that the option to revisit the past exists, either by track selection or by entire soundtrack.
Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster hits retailers March 18, 2014 for the PS3 and PS Vita for $39.99. The PS3 Collector’s Edition goes for $79.99 at the Square Enix store.
