Square Enix: PS Vita Version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster “Is Coming to North America”, “It’s Not Cancelled”
When the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was given a March 2014 release date yesterday (and an ESRB rating), it was just for PlayStation 3, with information about the PlayStation Vita version nowhere to be found.
After a ton of people wondered why we didn’t hear anything about the Remaster on PS Vita, Sakura Minamida, Senior Product Manager, Square Enix, answered many of their concerns, with the various, yet similar, replies below:
“The Vita version is coming to North America as previously announced and as shown on the trailer. Unfortunately the details aren’t available at this very moment. Please be patient – we will have some information on this soon!”
“The Vita details are being handled with love and care and will be announced soon! Please hang in there!”
“Thanks for noticing! Yes the Vita version has not gone away. We just didn’t have details to share at the moment! Didn’t want to hold off on the PS3 details any further!”
“It’s not cancelled! Vita version will be coming to North America! Details coming soon!”
“Apologies that we could not share more details on the Vita version. We will share something on the Vita very soon! Just wanted to get the information we had on hand sooner than later. Vita is not forgotten and is very much loved!”
Minamida then said, “Yes it will!” when asked if there was any chance of Cross Save or Cross Trophy support, meaning you’ll be able to share save files across both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game, and trophies will be shared between both versions. Sakura also confirmed that, “Yes! It will be available on PSN” in North America and Europe when the Remaster releases next year for PS3.
