Final Fantasy X/ X-2 HD is one of the biggest Square Enix project that got released in 2013, at least in Japan. The fact that the project is quite important for the company as a whole makes the fact that it’s been oursourced even more surprising.
It’s been confirmed today that the remaster has been developed by Virtuos, a Shanghai based studio that has only worked on some small releases up until down. The team worked on a few Ben 10 Ultimate Alien games and Wii ports of 2k sports games.
This isn’t the first time that Square Enix outsourced Final Fantasy games. Matrix Software developed Final Fantasy III and IV on Nintendo DS while Tose handled the Final Fantasy Anthology collection, released on the first PlayStation console.
Not too long ago we have reported that a new Final Fantasy X game may get released in the future, if there’s enough demand for it. The new Audio drama included in the remaster also seems to set the ground for a new game of the series, with Sin coming back to haunt the people of Spira and Yuna ready to defeat it once again.
Final Fantasy X/ X-2 HD will be released on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita sometime this march. The PSVita retail release will include Final Fantasy X HD and a download code for Final Fantasy X-2.
