Final Fantasy X HD Remaster – Comparison Images and Views

24 Mar

It been quite a while since I last posted, I know, but your in a bit of a treat today! Fresh out of Friday’s announcement and PAX East, Final Fantasy X HD Remaster is announced, and even has a trailer ‘well in German anyway’. for people who missed it, here the trailer:



Now, the reason I am posting today is to compare the differences between the PS2 version and the HD Trailer released today, So without any further ado, let’s begin.

Our first image compares a section of the famous lake scene, it shows Yuna crying in the lake.


Yuna HD Side by Side

The big different here is the tear she shedding, you can in fact see the tear, she crying. while seeable in the PS2 version it nothing compared to the HD Version. The lighting has been given quite a upgrade here too, with the scene being much darker ‘the way it should be,’ and Yuna having so many more shadows on her. Water has much more shine, the trees are much more detailed and Yuna’s accessories look much more detailed, just to name a few of the other updates.  overall looking great compared to the PS2 version.

Next, it time to go onto that boat to Luca:


Boat Scene Side by Side

Again, the lighting difference is very noticeable here, but this time the scene is now much brighter than before. Yuna’s model is also now much thinner, the stars are looking pretty awesome in HD too. Sadly on the other hand, this scene have seemed to have a switch from using Higher poly models to lower ones. It a shame really, the better high poly models could of really blossomed here.


Next, it that famous opening scene:


Opening Side by Side 2

Again, a noticeable lighting different can be seen here, that fire looking sexy too. This scene however have been tweaked from the original game. This shot was taken so that Tidus is at the same point in both shots, in the PS2 shot, the weapons cannot be seen. so for this one, I did another shot to show the difference in the weapons!

Opening Side by Side 

Tidus’s weapon looks so much better now compared to the PS2 version, the water inside even moves on the PS3 Version ‘look at the trailer to see what I mean.’

Next, back to the lake, but this time let’s compare Tidus


Tidus Side by Side

Looking pretty good I say, Tidus’s hair looks much more real now compared to the PS2. Once again the lighting has been upgraded, and it looking much better than before. Tidus has more detail to his face now as well.

Finally, one more Yuna compare, because I’m such a Yuna fanboy :3:


Yuna Sunset Side by Side 

One simple thing to say here… that sunset!

I got to say, Final Fantasy X HD Remaster is looking to be quite a upgrade, with it having much more than just a new coat of paint. It gets better, Final Fantasy X-2 is also getting the HD Treatment, and will be bundled with Final Fantasy X on one disc on PS3 as Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster. Sadly for you Portable fans you will have to buy each game on it own on Vita. Finally, both versions will be the International version, with Final Fantasy X International never seeing US Shores, and Final Fantasy X-2 International never seeing Western Shores, this is a must buy for Final Fantasy X Fans!

Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster on PS3 as well as Final Fantasy X HD Remaster and Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster on Vita will be released some time in 2013. Final Fantasy Fans will soon be able to once again experience the wonderful world of Spira, and experience the beautiful Love Story of the Blitzball Player Tidus, and the Young Summoner Yuna. This time experienceing the story in full glorious HD!
