This game was released originally in the US on December 17, 2001. Such a definitive turn in the series with the CTB turn based style, in which speed and timing are a factor. The story and characters are both memorable, minigames are fun, and the landscapes and music are an all around enjoyable experience.
Now we get an update with the HD remaster. Scheduled to make its debut on March 18th in the US, the HD changes are a welcome back. From Improved maps and character models to lighting, enhanced pre-rendered movies, the experience will definitely have you wanting to experience it all over again, or for the first time.
Final Fantasy X International was never released in North America an includes some additional content. From a new sphere grid, Last Mission and dresspheres along with a Creature Creator system, and the Coliseum, a new dungeon called Lutycyr Tower. Final Fantasy X adds dark aeons and the expert sphere grid. All characers also start in the center of the sphere grid, making customization easier. The music changes won’t be welcome for everyone, but they didn’t butcher any for sure. Some transic tunes from the world were not only remastered, but they leave out some instruments in an attempt to clean them up a bit. Eternal Calm is a short movie that connects Yuna from X to X-2.
This is a great overall rpg, that holds up well in all aspects even 13 years down the road. You can pick this title up on the PS3 and Vita on March 18th.
