Rumor: Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Delayed, Now Releasing In 2014
Final Fantasy X and its sequel, Final Fantasy X-2, are the first entries of the highly successful role-playing game series that will be receiving an HD remaster. A few trailers have been shown for both games and they really look great in HD glory.
Unfortunately it looks like Final Fantasy enthusiasts will have to wait more than anticipated before being able to play these two games on Ps3 and PsVita.
Apparently, Square Enix has delayed the HD collection and it will be released sometime during 2014. The delay is not yet official: according to some Square Enix reps at PAX Prime the situation could also change but it’s highly unlikely as of now. Many fans already feared that the game would be delayed since all the latest trailer lacked a release date. For more details on the situation, you can check out this Neogaf Forums thread.
Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy X-2 HD are both based on the International releases which feature some added contents: Final Fantasy X International features an Expert Sphere Grid, the Dark Aeons and Penance extra boss battles; Final Fantasy X-2 HD features a new monster raising gameplay element, extra dress spheres and an extra story segment called The Last Mission. Some extra characters usable in battle are also available. This will be the first time that Western players will be able to enjoy the FFX-2 International extra contents in English: the European FFX release was based on the International one.
