    Should be called a teaser. Not enough! I needs moar.

  • sherimae1324

    i can finally experience this masterpiece on a handheld ^_^

  • DarthBrian

    Not much of a trailer.

    Still though, those feels. T_T

  • Zuhri69

    Oh, all the feels!!!!

  • Kurisu Makise

    Interesting that the trailer leads by introducing the Vita versions first, then the combined PS3 release. It’ll be great to replay FFX on a handheld and likewise replay X-2.

  • bleach630

    Omg I can’t believe am gonna play this in HD /

  • Gonna be weird with no character audio but I’ll adapt

    • Michael Garling

      “Character audio”? Huh?

    • fireemblembeast

      Explain yourself

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    One must wonder what thoughts are spurring through Spoony if he knew about this.

    (assuming if anyone here knows who Spoony is.)

    • Budgiecat

      yes we know who he is

    • AnimusVox

      Who is Spoony? >>

  • Raiyu

    Sorry I’m unfamiliar to these games but I’m assuming that was Tidus’ voice at the beginning?

    • Azuardo


  • i wish the trailer 3 minute not 59 second :(

    we want more trailer please.”

  • Adol Christian

    I can’t wait to see the X-2 opening clip in HD (What Can I Do For U) :P

    I’ll probably get the Vita version over the PS3.

    • The FFX fmv is just cropped upscaled copies of the PS2 ones, they aren’t re-rendering them. They probably wont be for FFX-2 Either.

      • Adol Christian

        I kinda guessed they would do that. I’m just kidding :P

        • Actually looking into it a bit more, it seems that there is more detail in the HD versions FMV, so it’s not just upscaled. But because it’s cropped I’m assuming square is using their old higher resolution source renders instead.

          So there’s more detail, but you see less stuff. At least it’s not all bad :)

    They had to mess with the faces too much didn’t they…

    Original Spring Scene:

    FF X HD Trailer:!

    The new one looks less like the Tidus from FMV and PS2, that’s just great.

    • Bloodios

      I thought it looks fine.

      • shafiq95

        tidus looks expressionless

        • Bloodios

          Really? If the girl in front of me, who was laughing and agreeing with my ideas just a few seconds ago, just suddenly busts out crying, I imagine my face would look that numb and dumb too. I thought Tidus’ face originally look a tad too cheerful there. It’s like his face was screaming “Ooh! Chance!”

          • rockman29

            Then explain why his pictures at the “beginning of the game” just look as expressionless.

            They took out the character of Tidus in his face. He IS a cheery happy-go-lucky guy.

            • Bloodios

              There is a time and place for cheerfulness, and he is neither a freak nor wrong in head, so I think it’s completely normal if his face looks stunned for one particular moment. As for the intro sequence, it was only one single shot, where I personally don’t think he looks expressionless at all, because all they did there was changing his set of generic anime eyebrows to one that curves in a more gentle and natural fashion.

      • I like the changes made to lighting in that scene, but the faces are still worse then the originals.

        • Sevyne

          I’m not really seeing how they’re worse. Tidus’ face made him look like a pudgy little twerp originally. Every time I looked at him, I couldn’t take him seriously at all. He was some kind of manchild and it was unbearable to look at. Now at least he’ll only be unbearable to listen to.

    • They totally messed up the characters noses if nothing else. They used to actually have fully modeled ones, now they have half the polys removed and just painted in the rest so the silhouettes are flat and don’t react to light properly. Out of all the things they could mess up they go for the center of the characters faces.

      • rockman29

        Exactly, such a stupid thing to screw up.

        They didn’t even have to change around polygons to make it better, just adding them in doesn’t mean you change the actual structure of his face.

        It’s not even the same kid looking at him. He just looks like a bad carpet like this. The lighting over his face and hair is horrible too.

        Even his hair is messed up, all patted down compared to the original.

        • Bloodios

          Can you guys give me some pointers as of where exactly does his nose seem messed up?

          I thought that, compared to the original, the lighting is a whole a lot more accurate and natural. And personally, I like how his hair seems a lot closer to his CG counterpart now, instead of the original bundle of straws and pine cone.

          • rockman29

            This is the comparison I’m seeing so far, which is corroborated by the trailer (which looks the same as this picture imo).

            Original Tidus:

            FF X HD Tidus:

            IMO of course, I’m not saying people must agree, but I think this is something important to address for conserving great games in the future. I think this discussion is about preservation of art, in a sense.

            Just my imo, but I’m half expecting to be negged by a bunch of people who didn’t even play FF X in 2001. I guarantee anyone here I love FF X as much as the next guy.

            IMHO (humble and honest opinion), there are some things that shouldn’t be changed when it comes to remasters, and things like facial characteristics are pretty up there near the top of the list.

            The noses don’t even point in the same direction, it’s like Tidus got a nose job to make it thinner and “less” attractive. Just why imo. The shading on his hair is worse, the entire colour saturation is less appealing imo.

            Later I will make a FF X HD PCSX2 vs. FF X HD PS3 comparison, in a week or so. Then it’ll really show.

            • Bloodios

              It didn’t really bother me at first, but after you pointed that out, I can see that the nose does seem a tad odd… Well, we do supposedly have another 9 months or so till the game is released, so I hope that Square Enix will look into it by then…

              I still prefer the softer illumination of the HD-remaster version though. In the original PS2 version, the lighting always felt a tad too harsh on Tidus’ face (when compared to the rest of his body) in this particular scene. As for his hair, I personally think they seem more organic and easier to look at now. Well, like I said, there are probably still sometimes left before the game is released, so there might be further tweaking to be seen, similar to how the textures were improved in later trailers of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix when compared to the first one. Perhaps some folks could directly contact Square Enix to express the concern and hope the devs will take that in consideration for improvement, thus accommodating for both the fans of the old and new look.

              Anyway, I’ll stop here, as further discussions wouldn’t yield anything good, since it’s all a matter of opinions at this point. I thank you for being patient with me though, as I’ve seen folks elsewhere (i.e. YouTube >_> ) blew up in my face before when I disagreed with their opinions. I hope it all works out for all of us fans by the launch date.

              • rockman29

                Cheers bloodios

  • Freesun4

    Auron *_*

    • Bloodios

      I seriously can’t wait to see this badassery again :D

  • Can’t wait to see a comparison trailer to see the difference between the versions.

  • From looking at the comments:

    I don’t see what’s the big deal is about a trailer for a already released game that’s just in HD…

  • Can’t decide which version to get. This game is pure beauty. 1080p, 5.1 beauty or OLED beauty, that’s the question.

    • Guest

      I’ll be getting both. I’d like it on the big screen and on-the-go. On-the-go FFX… my dreams have come true. Even without an HD remaster, I’d take FFX on-the-go if I could. Although, FFX is my favorite game, so.

  • Prodigy-X

    Looks great now give me Versus & Type-0.

  • AnimusVox

    Well…I know how to say ‘and’ in German now. :L

  • The memories… oh man. I really enjoyed FFX. The music! It might have one of my favorite normal battle songs ever.

    Oh and this one –

    Catchy theme for when you are in a hurry. lol

    Last one lol –

    Okay, I’m done. i don’t want to spoil all the awesome music for people that have never played it.

  • I do love the music from FFX.

  • Josh

    What systems is this coming to?

    • fireemblembeast

      It says it in the title, but it’s coming to PS Vita and PS3.

      • Josh

        Yea I was hopping for 360 also.


    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      You can never mention that song again…

  • fireemblembeast

    Woah the trailer’s in 3D too! ^_^ I love it when they are.

  • PrinceHeir

  • kairock
