[Updated with the announcement trailer] Today Square Enix revealed that the HD collection of Final Fantasy X (and it's sequel) that was coming to Japan, is also coming to North America for both the PS3 home console and the Vita. More details inside!
Final Fantasy X was a strong early release for the PS2 and remains a favorite among FF fans today.
