Final Fantasy x/x-2 hd gets pre-order bonus and comparison trailer


Final Fan­tasy X and X-2 are a two games in a long list of games that I missed dur­ing the PlaySta­tion 2 era. This fall Square Enix is giv­ing me, and every­one else, the oppor­tu­nity to explore these two titles in one amaz­ing HD col­lec­tion. We knew that Square Enix was putting out an HD col­lec­tion of these two titles and that they are com­ing to the PlaySta­tion 3 and Vita. Today, how­ever,    they give us a glimpse of what effort has been put into to clean up and breathe new life into these titles, and it looks fan­tas­tic. Below is the video show­ing the orig­i­nal PlaySta­tion 2 title and its new HD counter part. Revamped light­ing, higher def­i­n­i­tion tex­tures and col­ors are just some of the improve­ments you can catch in the video. Along with the com­par­i­son trailer is a addi­tion  to pre-orders. If you pre-order at a par­tic­i­pat­ing loca­tion you can snag the Lim­ited Edi­tion that will net you a 24 page art book, com­men­tary by the orig­i­nal devel­op­ment teams, and a spe­cial mes­sage from the games pro­ducer Yoshi­nora Kitase. All of this added con­tent doesn’t change the retail price either, the game will release at $39.99. The games release date has yet to be revealed, but with King­dom Hearts 1.5 HD com­ing in Sep­tem­ber, I am more than cer­tain you can bank on this fall. I wish more com­pa­nies would make HD remakes the way Square Enix is treat­ing their fran­chises. Silent Hill got a mediocre HD con­ver­sion, while series like Metal Gear and Devil May Cry have received bet­ter col­lec­tions, but Square Enix is still out­shin­ing every­one. I already have King­dom Hearts 1.5 HD pre-ordered, mainly I am a sucker for game con­cept art books, so looks like I will be off to Game Stop to plop money down on this col­lec­tion as well.
