Final Fantasy HD Remaster Includes an Extra 30-Minute Cutscene

Folks are getting antsy to hear a firm release date for the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X/X-2, but every day we find out something new that starts to paint a pretty clear picture of what’s taking so long to wrap the game’s development. If Shounen Jump magazine is right, via a post on Siliconera, an extra half-hour-long drama is being added to the HD duet’s credit sequence. Take a peek at a snapshot of the magazine page detailing the information:


To add to the intriguing concept of an all-new cutscene, the report states that the extra content will be written by the same scenario writer of both games, Kazushige Nojima. Newly-recorded voice work is also said to be included, making this a completely legitimate addition to the overall narrative tying these two titles together.

Of course, the only potential downside is that Square Enix has yet to confirm the existence of such an addition, let alone announce it will be included in the western version of the game as well. In fact, we’re still waiting on confirmation for whether or not the “Last Mission” from Final Fantasy X-2 will be included in stateside versions of the HD remastering. Still, the idea of adding bonus content written by the man who scripted the initial titles, featuring HD visuals and full voice work, is enough to make any fan at least a little excited.

As previously mentioned, Square Enix has yet to announce a firm release date for the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, but the collection is still supposedly on track for a 2013 re-launch. The plan is to release the collection as a single SKU on PS3 and as two separate titles on PS Vita. Rumor has it an Xbox 360 version is in the pipeline, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Are you folks excited about the potential for additional content in the HD release? Are there any plot points you’d like to see fleshed out, or perhaps a stronger bridge built between the two titles?
