Hm so it looks like X/X-2 HD wont hit western territories before January huh? I am surprised by this. Isnt this a bit dangerously close to the release of Lightning returns? Cant imagine they would want the both games competing in the sales charts...

No its understandable that it takes longer. This isnt a simple HD port like with the Tomb Raider Trilogy. They are basically recreating FF X and X-2. the charactermodels are new, facial animation is redone, all of the graphics has been completely re-rendered and remastered, the music has been newly arranged etc. If you compare the original version to the Remaster version the difference in quality is ENORMOUS. Almost like a shot by shot remake.

So this game shouldnt have come out 6 months ago, thats nonsense. I hate it if people have no patience and want everything yesterday but with the best possible quality. quality takes time. And I rather have a perfect remaster that almost feels like a new game instead of just a cheap usual HD port.

It's SE that we are talking about! I was so suprised by KH 1.5! The result was suprisingly astonishing! The best remaster so far and I think that X/X-2 can only compete with it, if not surpass it!
