Square Enix may be making a sequel to a subsequel of a sequel, but there's still not enough Final Fantasy in this world. To help address this crippling deficit, it'll release its "remastered" versions of PlayStation 2 FF games Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 on PlayStation 3 and Vita later this year.
Squeenix announced the FF X remaster way back in 2011, and word of the FF X-2 revamp came from a Japanese magazine earlier in the week, but was only officially confirmed today for a western release. Also news is that they'll be released some time in 2013.
On PlayStation 3, they'll both come together on one disc in the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, but the two games will be separate releases on Vita.
"These games are classic fan-favorites, and we hope that new and old Final Fantasy fans can experience the world of Spira and the story of Tidus and Yuna in a brand-new light with these remastered editions," FF X and X-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase said in the announcement.
