Square Enix is finally ready to announce a North American release date for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The two-game package will be available for the PS3 on March 18, 2014. As you may have noticed, that’s quite a bit beyond the remake’s originally projected “Fall 2013” release. In fact, when it’s finally released, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will have spent more time in development (916 days from the initial announcement) than the original Final Fantasy X (686 days).
In honor of the release date announcement, Square Enix has uploaded a brand new trailer, which you can view above. They’ve also confirmed that gamers who pre-order Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be upgraded to a Limited Edition that comes with an exclusive artbook.
But bad news for Vita owners, the handheld version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (which was to be released separately as Final Fantasy X HD Remaster and Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster) appears to be canceled. The Vita version was not part of today’s announcement and all mention of Sony’s handheld has been stripped from the remake’s official website.
