The International version of X already has a complete English version (Europe) and X-2 wouldn't require that much extra voice acting or translating.

Now if only the game had a chance at being released outside of Japan.

Um, what?  I would be shocked if it wasn't released outside of Japan.

Are they redoing the voice acting at all? I don't think so.

The only new dialogue they'd have to record would be Last Mission in X-2 and I think they could get away without out doing that. It's not like there would be a huge amount of effort required in bringing it over. Hell, they're bringing over Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and that has the Final Mix version of 1.

Just for reference this is the content of FFX and X-2 International that SQEX released in Japan back then:

FINAL FANTASY X INTERNATIONAL [with Bonus DVD] / Release Date: Jan 31, 2002



This version of FFX supports a fully English mode, new boss game as well as new abilites and summon battles.

This is the hard to get Japanese version including the Bonus DVD.

'Other Side of the Final Fantasy 2' Bonus DVD content:

1. FFX Another Story: Additional conversation mainly between Yuna, Wakka & Rikku placed between the storyline of Final Fantasy X & Final Fantasy X-2 The conversations are in Japanese only.

2. Promotion Movies: Showing 3 Japanese TV commercials as well as 1 promotion video.

3. FFX Theme Song: The official Japanese theme song by RIKKI. Featured in 5.1 (or Stereo).

4. The Actors - Japan: (Japanese) interview with the Japanese voices and actors behind Tidus, Yuna, Wakka, Lulu, Kimahri, Auron, Rikku & Seymour.

5. The Actors - USA: (English) interview with the American voices behind Tidus & Yuna.

FINAL FANTASY X-2 INTERNATIONAL + LAST MISSION / Release Date: Feb 19, 2004



"Final Fantasy X-2 International + Last Mission is based on the US release of Final Fantasy X-2, with extra missions in the Yadonoki Tower, and bonus movie scenes not found in the original Japanese version.

Additionally the game has a new Monster Arena, in which you can battle with all the monsters and enemies from the game. You can battle against characters from Final Fantasy X, including Auron, Tidus, Seymour; as well as a new boss Emerald.

Final Fantasy X-2 International + Last Mission also includes a Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Trailer."

Square Enix also released Final Fantasy X / X-2 Ultimate Box in Sep 07, 2005. That collection though has only the standard versions of both games with the "FFX Another Story" bonus DVD.

Given A)Squeenix's recent track record for localizations, B)Squeenix's overall track record for localizing International editions outside of Japan, C)Japan's batshit economy practically requiring entertainment media released in Japan to have extra content over worldwide releases to discourage reverse importation (to justify the otherwise exorbitant prices video games and other media goes for over there), and D)Sony's recent track record of shooting down localization attempts, I don't personally believe the chances bode well.

Though I will concede the fact that my initial choice of words was poor and should've stated "Now if only the game will actually be released outside of Japan." instead of stating that there was no chance.

A) It's a Final Fantasy game.  A popular one at that.  FF sells like hotcakes here.  And unlike Type-0 it's not on a dead platform.

B) International editions released shortly after the initial version of the game, sure.  But this is a full-fledged remake, which they have a pretty good track record on.  You make it sound like they are conspiring specifically keep people from buying international editions...

C) Whua?  Because everyone in Japan speaks fluent English?  How is this even relevant...

D) I don't even know what you're talking about here.  What localization attempts has Sony shot down recently?

Seriously, if this game doesn't come out internationally I'll eat my hat.

The fact that Square Enix is bringing out Kingdom Hearts 1.5 should be the biggest indicator this will come out. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 requires more effort to localize because of the 385/2 Days videos. Final Fantasy X and X-2 have like one single section that doesn't already have voice acting, and advertising it as the International versions will guarantee sales. It's a really cheap localization with a large guaranteed profit.

As long as they don't find some way to add ridiculous microtransactions I'm cool with that.

That's a big if, though.

Wow, that's pretty cool that they managed to man-up and De-Meg-Ryan him.

...I wonder if Lulu will actually look pregnant in X-2.  Otherwise, babies can apparently start kicking a week into pregnancy haha.

About time stuff is surfacing on this too.

Comparison shots time. I know that anything can be considered an improvement over the original's sprites but using retextured Romancing SaGa sprites is still pretty goddamn lazy. Especially since you resized the viewing field and slimmed down the tiles to leave those massive open areas on the sides of the screen.

Also, way to make Faris look like a complete chick now instead of some kind of person with long pink hair. Now nobody's going to be surprised an hour into the game when Faris's paper thin disguise falls apart.

Maybe Japanese character designs are able to make people question his/her gender, but being raised North American: long hair = girl.  So... =/

I hate how plastic-y the new graphics look.  It's cool that it's like an "HD" version of a 16-bit game, but I don't dig it than say a real take at it (I thought FF4 DS's graphics were great and a better take to putting in the effort for a remake).
