Also, Famitsu explains why both games are being sold separately on the Vita.
After outing the existence of Final Fantasy X-2 HD, which would be available alongside the initially announced HD remake of Final Fantasy X for PS3 and sold separately when both titles hit the PS Vita, Famitsu has now provided some new details on both games via a new feature this week.
Among these include why the two releases are kept separate on the Vita, information on visual upgrades and even how close the games are to completion.
It turns out that both versions are being sold separately for the Vita simply because of their size. Options for cross-save support between PS3 and PS Vita versions are still under consideration.
This could be in part to the improved textures for characters and enemies, along with the pre-rendered scenes from the original now being in HD (and looking far better). In the sound department, there is an overall improvement in quality along with the option for Japanese voices.
Both games are apparently 70 percent complete at this stage, and will indeed be releasing this year.
