This week Final Fantasy fans got one step closer to knowing when Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster will be released in the West as Square Enix has announced that the compilation will be available in Japan on December 26th. This effectively means that Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster will only be released sometime next year in the US and Europe, although February is probably out since that’s when Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is due to touch down in the West.
We’ve known for a while now that the compilation will be split up into two separate games for the PS Vita version, but Square Enix has revealed that there’ll also be a Twin Pack available which includes both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 and is priced identically to the PS3 version of the HD Remaster (i.e. 7 140 yen at retail and 6 400 yen as a digital download).
It’s not yet known if Square Enix intends to make the PS3 version of each game available as a separate purchase on the PlayStation Store at some point in the future.
