Square Enix recently revealed live in-game footage of Final Fantasy X HD running on a Sony PS Vita handheld console. The below demonstration by Shinji Hashimoto, Final Fantasy Brand Director at Square Enix, shows in-game HD character models of Yuna, Tidus, Yojimbo, and Bahamut, but not much else.
This announcement followed news of a price drop on the PS Vita console from Sony Computer Entertainment President, Hiroshi Kawano, during a live presentation. Official U.S. price-drops have not yet released, however they typically follow just months after price-drops in Japan. With the recent news of the PlayStation 4, I just hope they don’t sideline the HD version of Final Fantasy X for PS Vita. I know I’m not the only one anxiously awaiting an HD remake.
Until then, take a look at a few of the amazing HD screenshots of Final Fantasy X from Electric Blue Skies. His screenshots were taken via Pcsx2 emulation (Ps2 textures rendering x4, Hardware AAx3, 1080 vertical px) in 4:3 ratio (as the original game). See hundreds more at ElectricBlueSkies.com. We can only hope the PS Vita HD version of FFX will look this good, or better.
