Final Fantasy X is my second-favorite JRPG of all time. Its sweeping tale of love set against catastrophic, world-altering conflict is as timeless as the Sphere Grid level-up system. So when Square Enix announced a high-def remaster of Final Fantasy X for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita at TGS 2011, I was suitably excited. Actually, I was beside myself with feverish anticipation.
That elation has since subsided into apathy, as next to nothing has been mentioned about the game since. Thankfully, that may change very soon. In response to a Twitter query from a fan eager for news on Final Fantasy X HD's progress, Square Enix Europe responded with a heartening message: "The world will get answers soon, we promise."
I sure hope so, because September 2011 is a long time ago, and there are millions of Final Fantasy X fans waiting to see how this remaster will bring a beloved classic into the high-definition era.
Cross-buy? Cross-save? Visual improvements? Content from the International Edition? Only time will tell, but on the off chance that Square Enix is watching this article, drop a comment below and tell us what Final Fantasy X HD should feature to set itself apart from the ongoing parade of last-gen remakes.
