Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster hits PS4 this May


Yo dawg I heard you like remasters

Square Enix has announced final details on Final Fantasy X | X-2 Remaster HD's improved port to the PlayStation 4. This release was announced in December of last year, but since then Square Enix has been mum about it. The port will come with new features and improvements that address some of the qualms many people shared about the original release.

New features will include:

  • Cross-save capability: Transfer your saves freely across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4 versions of the title.
  • Switch between the original and remastered soundtrack: Love the original soundtrack? Now you can get all the benefits of the HD visuals and a choice between the original and remastered soundtracks.
  • Remote Play: You'll be able to play the game remotely on your PlayStation Vita, which is pretty neat.
  • "Enhanced" enhanced textures: The enhanced textures from the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita will be enhanced for the PlayStation 4 version and look like they may fix the stark contrast between the great looking player characters and the NPCs that made me ask, "What's wrong with your face?" (See the gallery for PlayStation 4 screens)

I had a great time with the PlayStation 3 version, but for $49.99 I'm going to be hard-pressed to pick it up again, as to me the improvements aren't worth a new purchase. Hopefully, Square Enix will allow for some sort of discount for those who already own the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita version.

Pre-ordering now on the Square Enix store or at participating retailers will get you a calender featuring artwork by Yoshitaka Amano. Final Fantasy X | X-2 Remaster HD is slated for release on May 12 in North America for $49.99 and May 15 in Europe for €49.99 or £34.85 in the U.K, and be available both digitally on PlayStation Network and physically on disc.
