  • Kyle McDaniel

    With that date there’s no way in hell the rest of the world is getting it in 2013.

    • jujubee88
    • Rogerrmark

      Pretty much January/ February. Which sucks.

      I wonder how will they port DQI~VIII so soon,if FFX/X-2 took 2 years.

    • Samuel Giam

      No. We will still get Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD in 2013 just maybe between 28-31 December since the release date for Japan is set for 26 December.

      If Square Enix release FF X/X-2 HD in January 2014 for the US and Europe then they can forget about most of us buying a copy of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII the month after (11 February 2014) because most of you had already compared LR: FF XIII to crap before its release and my only problem from buying a copy of LR: FF XIII is my interest for getting it and the time already set for FF X/X-2 HD.

      And by that time I will not be interested to buy a copy of LR: FF XIII for my PS3 until March if Square Enix wish to think that they can release two anticipated games within a two-month timeframe.

      • MrFinalgamer

        releasing it in that time frame would take a lot of commitment from square…which i doubt they will. but hey FFX and X-2 are already fully voiced and translated so maybe it’s doable. if not…one FF game is gonna get fucked (which i hope it’s LR if it comes down to that because i want FFXII HD and Type-0 on my vita dammit!)

        • Samuel Giam

          Not only you who’s thinking about that. As for me Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is also coming in 2014 and if Square Enix releases three anticipated games in a three month timeframe then I will decide on getting just the FF X/X-2 HD and KH HD 2.5 Remix LEs than Lightning Returns: FF XIII until maybe two months after KH HD 2.5’s release

  • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

    Lol really SE? December 26th? Like really? Whats wrong with release it November or early December?

    What about other regions? When are we going to get the leftovers? 2014?

    This SE

    • jujubee88

      Wud it be released in US/EU if it where pushed back? (Guaranteed)

  • Alkhan

    Like I said months ago, we’ll get this in January 2014.

  • Sevyne

    I really hope we also get that Vita Twin Pack. Puts it at the same price as the PS3 Version.

  • Xaltmas

    Good shit. I’m glad they aren’t fucking over Vita owners.

    Give me the digital version of the dual pack for Vita in the US and I’m there day one!

  • new_tradition

    Worldwide release? :D

    I-It could happen! D:

    Seriously, it’s a little funny a lot of games I want are (likely) out in 2014. It feels like a social experiment to see how devoted gamers are by making them get different games released so close or something.

    (Also loving that CGI rendition of the original Concept art <3)

    • Karysonson

      Square was going to do that with Lightning Returns but then delayed it to feb so I dont really trust them to much anymore on that front…..

  • PrinceHeir

    is the game Dual Audio?

    doesn’t matter, already getting the JPN version and US version at the same time ^^

    man one of my favorite FF games ever!! glad it’s coming along smoothly!!

    • Anime10121

      Doubtful, no Final Fantasy has ever had dual audio.

  • PrinceHeir

    also i remember the game was announced last 2011.

    man Square Enix is so slow!!!!

  • Elvick

    Better bring that (retail) Twin Pack to NA, Square. D:<

    Or the games at retail in general. I want them on PS Vita so bad, but I don't want them digitally. ;_;

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention… the PS Vita design is lazy… therefore ugly. Truly a shame. It could have been elegant and sex.

  • MrFinalgamer

    square…the vita bundle…i need it. please…

  • jujubee88

    “Printed matter”
    lol!

    • Sevyne

      And now that you have pointed this out, my mind went to a bad place. Damn you!

  • adhesive

    If the FFX Vita had the same style as the Crisis Core PSP it’d be great, but we got this instead. I guess I’ll just be ordering a Soul Sacrifice Vita instead.

  • bloodiOS

    That Vita design… could’ve been better, it looks like some cheap fan-made material. That aside, the cover art of the Twin Pack bundle for the Vita looks adorable though~~ (suddenly, I want it as a reversible cover art for the PS3 version >_<)

    • Gigus

      Yeah the PS vita bundle really looks lazy. I would have liked the box art designs the game has and have that on the back of the vita instead.

    • asch999

      If US version cover art for Vita Twin Pack changed, I’m gonna spam SE mailbox with anger

      • bloodiOS

        If the West even have a Vita Twin Pack…

    • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

      My exact thoughts!

  • tokyobassist

    Cool! Hopefully the US release either follows up in January. I’m pretty sure the big hold up is the translation & recording of the new ending.

  • RSene

    What is Ultimanias?

    • http://www.rpgnews.it/ Chocozell

      Is a kind of book with illustration et similia

    • bloodiOS

      They are huge, bible-like guidebooks packed with lots of illustrations, interviews and such.

      • RSene

        all right, sound nice

        • Anime10121

          We wont be getting them though, never have, and probably never will :(

  • TheExile285

    Man, I hope we get that twin pack at retail. Love the box-art.

  • bldudas

    Which means we should get it early next year, right?

    I want it for my PS3, I might also get the Vita twin pack.

  • Anime10121

    Hm, so this new FFX-2.5 book will probably have a lot to do with the new audio drama. And if it does, I’m wandering what the point of including the audio drama is in the western release if we wont get the book which will have far more info about it…

    • Samuel Giam

      I don’t think we the Western world can even get a online product page about the FF X-2.5 book unless Square Enix relents and allow translations of this book into English.

      Also like the Japan Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts PSP bundles that were stripped-down PSP Entertainment Packs in the US, I can bet that the US will not have a full PS Vita bundle but just a stripped-down bundle with either the FF X or X-2 Game Card, either game’s download voucher, PS Vita Memory Card and a plain White PS Vita Slim.

      • Anime10121

        Yup, sounds about right :(

        • Samuel Giam

          Not only that, what I don’t get about the game’s PS3 Limited Editions are that the US version of the FF X/X-2 LE is the artbook and the “game case” are joined together like the US KH HD 1.5 Remix LE while for the European/UK version LE, the artbook and game case are separated. Can’t Square Enix NA separate the artbook from the game case like what Square Enix Europe did?

          And also the FF X/X-2 artbook may be a very heavy book and for Square Enix NA to pack the game disc on a tray as the last page in such a book like that can break both the tray and game disc if online retailers like Best Buy and Amazon.com just throw the boxes on the warehouse floor like piles of standard edition games then most of us may not need to play the game at all, just return and receive another damaged disc.

  • MasterSensei

    So, are we looking at an early 2014 release for Final Fantasy X/X-2 overseas?

    • bloodiOS

      At the the earliest, I think it would be sometimes in January.

  • MasterSensei

    I really hope this game sell REALLY well… I know that people might not like it but I would really love a Final Fantasy XII-HD Remake simply because I like Balthier and Fran… as well as Basch, Ashe, Thing 1 and Thing 2 and that one Chocobo that stared forlornly into the distance almost as if it was reliving a memory of it’s many past lovers.

    • Saint Boot

      You stated XIII, but named Bathier and Fran. Check your roman numerals please.

      • MasterSensei

        I put an extra I by accident. sorted now
