After promoting such games as “Dargon Quest,” and including basic typos on the Final Fantasy Type-0 box, the guy who worked on Resident Evil Revelaitons seems to now work full time at Square Enix. Underscoring an announcement (via press release) of the Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD Remaster on PS4 being ready to launch on May 12th is the fact that two promotional screenshots spell the game’s title “Final Fantsy.”
Just as the excellent PS3 and PS Vita releases of Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD Remaster did last year, this collection will bring added features and gameplay modes that were not present on the initial releases of these games on the PS2. Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm and Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission modes are included, along with cross-save functionality across the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Remote play also works with this title.
Finally, and I must admit it is an important addition new in the PS4 version of the Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster is the ability to switch between the original and remastered soundtrack. It’s not quite clear if you can pick or choose, as I found that some of the new renditions of the Final Fantasy X soundtrack sound better than the old ones. However, I found that the originals were stronger overall. Even if the options are limited to just the entire soundtracks, that’s more than appreciated here.
Pre-ordering Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster on PS4 will offer a desktop calendar featuring the artistry of Yoshitaka Amano. The game will retail at $49.99; about $10 more than the PS3 version did last year at launch.
