shared details today on the Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Collector's Edition alongside the PS Vita release date below.
To quote: When we announced the Limited Edition of Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster, we got a lot of questions about the Vita version. We promised we'd share the details with you when we had them, and now we do.
So let's open this up with some good news. The game will be coming to PS Vita on March 18th alongside the PS3 version. It will support cross save functionality, and will retail for $39.99!
The combo pack will also be available as a download on PlayStation Store. If you prefer a physical copy, you can buy Final Fantasy X at retail, which will include a voucher to download Final Fantasy X-2 from the PlayStation Store.
And we have even MORE news. Coming exclusively to the http://gc.digitalriver.com/DRHM/store?Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&SiteID=sqenixus&Locale=en_US&ThemeID=29853700&Env=BASE&productID=295240500#.Uqpl-SQhNBK, we're happy to announce the Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster Collector's Edition for PS3.
This is the definitive edition of the game for those of you who, like me, loved every minute of the original, and made costumes of all the characters for your friends so they could wear them... once.
So let's talk about what you'll be getting in this version. First of all, you get the full size, 40-page hardcover art book filled with the concept sketches, environment art, and characters that populate the world of Spira. The art is separated into two sections, one for each game.
In the Final Fantasy X-2 section, we've even included a render of all three characters in every single one of their Dresspheres. It's amazing to see how the art evolved into the final versions used in the game, and we've made sure to include some of the early art that would grow into the characters you know and love.
Secondly, that second disk you see in the image above is the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster original soundtrack (blu-ray music disc). This isn't your everyday soundtrack - it's actually more than six hours of music set to images from the game that you can hit play on and be taken on a visual journey through some of Final Fantasy X's most memorable moments.
If you've ever wanted to share your love for the game with someone special, this would be a great way to do it. Or you could play the game together, of course!
Finally, we've got five lithographs of art I know I would be proud to hang on my wall. You may recognize a few of these iconic scenes - Tidus and Yuna in the waters of Macalania Forest, Gunner Yuna's striking pose - but the image of Tidus and Yuna embracing after all is said and done (I hope you know where you have to whistle) and the new CG render that appears as the Limited Edition box art are brand new visuals created specifically for the Remaster version. Which one do you think you'd frame?
And of course, you get the game too, in case there was any question.
Our goal with this Collector's Edition was to give this game's biggest fans something they could really cherish. I hope you enjoy the results!
The Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster Collector's Edition will be available exclusively through the Square Enix online store for the PS3 on March 18, 2014 for $79.99. Supplies will be limited, so pre-order to reserve your copy.
