DADDY ISSUES WAHHH!

I loved the original Final Fantasy X, especially in the scenes when Tidus would shut the hell up about his daddy issues. Beyond that though, it’s one of the last great games in that franchise,before the current lull set in. A remake is on the way,that includes the fan service sequel, and it looks like there’ll be more than just a 16:9 anamorphic ratio thrown into this update.

SiliconEra did some translating from a recent issue of Shounen Jump, which revealed that Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will have a brand new ending cinematic that will be around 30 minutes in length. Considering the quality of Square Enix animations, this pleases me…greatly.

So how much longer until the game is out then? Not that long actually. BT Games has the title listed for an October 18 release, not far off at all, while Kalahari has the game listed for an October 17 launch.

Now hopefully Square Enix can include a mode that makes Tidus just that little bit less insufferable, and the remake will be perfect.

Big thanks to Karl Thomson and ShyGuy for the link.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

      • Sasori

        Dark Aeons are NOT something to look forward to… Dat Dark Yojimbo…

  • Dean

    Might have to get this for Zoe. Goodbye PS3 time.

    • Zoe

      yay!!!

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        I wan’t a free copy too … :( Unfair …. This is not what Mandela fought for

    • Gerhard Davids

      Might se gat. You must!

  • Argentil

    Darryn, stop being such a hipster hating on the new Final Fantasies. FFXII was one of the best :(

    • DarthofZA

      But it lacked the special that all the FFs 10 and earlier titles had. When the big guys left Square and started MistWalker, FF lost its soul. MistWalker puts out the great FF games now (though FF isn’t in the title).

      • LordCaptainAwesomeness

        So True man…so true

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Agree, FF 12 was great but, I never felt the same kind of soul and heart, but I think Tetsuya Nomura can bring that back with 15, the trailer alone has more heart than any FF released in recent years

      • Argentil

        It’s easy to say that, but FFXII’s team was mostly FFTactic’s team anyway. One man does not make SE what it is. Some of the best games have since come out after Sakaguchi’s departure. The KH Series and FFXII are examples of this.

        FFXII was different, but it was truly amazing as an outside-the-box FF title. It had so many layers and such a rich background.

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          I don’t think he made SE but I do feel he made FF imo especially after having played LO, it really has that heart that I felt was lacking in most FF titles after he left. AS much as I enjoyed 13 it just feels really off. but 12 was amazing in it’s own rights. The KH series came out when he was still there though but that is Nomura’s baby.

          • Argentil

            LO is a great game. I think the weak link in SE right now is Toriyama’s writing. Anything he’d involved in is 100x cheesier than it has to be. Some of the character interaction in XIII, and less so X, made me cringe.

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            Agree very much. What really got on my nerves is that 13 had a damn fantastic world and lore, I mean the whole Fal’cie and L’cie things was freaking awesome as well as Cacoon and Pulse …. but nothing of that was ever fully realized, which really got to me

    • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

      I’ve actually never played FF XII. Waiting for the eventual HD version :P BUT(T), I am kinda keen for Final Fantasy XV, which is essentially Crisis Core gameplay. But purdier.

      • Argentil

        Ok, you’re forgiven. I’ve been waiting on XV for years like a moron, knowing I’m a moron for keeping my hopes high. Seems like it will finally pay off in the next 2 years.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        It does look like CC, more accurately would be CC on speed, there does not seem to be any frame delay between attacks like in CC, seems much more Hack n slashy

        • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

          And I’m ok with that. Anything but another Final Fantasy XIII. I mean, who would be stupid to make a third Lightning game that – (Looks at notes)…Well shit.

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            So am I, anything close to CC’s battle is great in my head. The only good thing about Lightning Returns is that it will be the last in the series

  • James Philip Lawrence

    yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!

    I thought this was to revive the VITA.

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Vita version should be coming soon, FF X on the go…heaven

  • Slade Boender

    Was X any good though? I heard it was lacking in some places, only cool thing was the new ABS and the fact folk didnt have to read anymore

    • LordCaptainAwesomeness

      The switching members mid fight, graphics, and the Story man… It was Amazing…

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Bloody good man, the Sphere (Upgrade) system was great and the battle system was really fun. Story was good and music was beyond excellent

      • Slade Boender

        Then advice heeded. Thanks gents!

  • hairyknees

    One of the few FF games I missed out on due to not owning a PS2. GIMME GIMME GIMME :D

  • MrSpoiler15

    What horrible use of punctuation. Way too many commas. Some “journalist”.
