Two gaming console generations in, and to be honest, I haven’t played a decent Final Fantasy since the days of yon PlayStation 2. Final Fantasy X was the name of that last great RPG from that specific franchise, and it’s getting tooled up for PlayStation 3. With a super duper extra edition of course.

But there’s a catch of course. You’ll need to do some importing to get the Collector’s Edition for the HD reworked versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2. Available exclusively now and forever on the Square Enix Online Store, the special edition packs a proper size art book, five lithographs of the main characters and a Blu-Ray of the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster soundtrack which clocks in at over six hours of music.

It’ll cost you $79.99 for the CE, or just over R800 and it probably doesn’t ship to South Africa anyway, which means that I just got your hopes for nothing. As recompense, here’s a ton of screenshots that probably won’t do anything to dampen that blazing urge to kill me right now:

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is out next year March on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. In many ways, Final Fantasy X was a breakthrough in several areas for the franchise. Improved technology, a fun Sphere system which could be used to improve character stats and full-on voice acting made this game about a kid with daddy issues stuck in a new world something to watch and play.

The sequel? More fan service than anything else, but still a pretty awright game actually.
