Square Enix didn’t leave their announcements at just the limited pre-order edition for Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster today (See: Limited Edition Pre-Order Bonuses Announced for Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster). In addition to the announcement the company released a new set of screenshots for both of the games to be included in the collection with a focus on the different party members who will join Tidus and/or Yuna on their journeys.
Final Fantasy X follows a more traditional Final Fantasy party member line-up with a total of seven playable characters: Tidus, Yuna, Auron, Kimahri, Wakka, Lulu and Rikku. Of these seven, only Yuna and Rikku join as party members in Final Fantasy X-2, where they are joined by the new character Paine for an all-girls experience. In Final Fantasy X, characters do tend to fall in one of a number of traditional battle styles that can be altered using the “Sphere Grid” system. In Final Fantasy X-2 character classes are defined through the use of dresspheres, allowing the girls to take on a number of different classes.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is set for release later this year on the Playstation 3. Individual releases of X and X-2 will also be available on the Playstation Vita.
