Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was rumored to be coming to the PlayStation 4 earlier this week due to a listing on Square Enix’s French store page. Today Square Enix has come out and confirmed that the collection will be coming to the PS4 next year.
At the PlayStation Chinese press conference, Square Enix confirmed that the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD collection will indeed be coming to the PS4. The set will be releasing in Spring 2015 along with the Final Fantasy VII port that is also coming to the PS4. Both titles will feature “system-exclusive features,” though there is no word what those will be. Final Fantasy X/X-2 will cost $49.99, while Final Fantasy VII will set players back $15.99. Final Fantasy VII will not a port of the PlayStation version, but will rather be based on the PC version with up-scaled graphics.
Both Final Fantasy VII and X were the first games in the series to be released on their respective consoles, with VII being the first on the PlayStation, and X being the first on the PS2. The games were also innovative at the time that they were released. Final Fantasy VII was the first game in the series to feature 3D graphics, while X was the first game to feature voice acting for the characters. X was also unique in the way that characters would level up, as there was no standard leveling system like other entries in the series. Instead of levels, players would navigate a giant grid with nodes for stat enhancements, skills, and abilities. Instead of levels, characters received points that allowed them to move along on the grid and enhance the characters by moving on the nodes.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is available on the PS3 and PS Vita. Final Fantasy VII can be purchased on Steam. Both will come to the PS4 in Spring of next year.
