The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, written as Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster in the official logo, is an upcoming remastered compilation of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It was announced at the Sony Press Conference in Japan on September 14th, 2011 as part of a 10th anniversary special, and is set to be released in 2013. This version is based on the International version of both games.

It has been announced that Square Enix's 1st Production Department is developing this port, a change from Square Enix's normal method of outsourcing remakes and ports to other companies, for example the DS remake of Final Fantasy III and Finest Fantasy for Advance, which were developed by Matrix Software and TOSE, respectively. However, it has been stated it is solely of a quality remaster, featuring a small quantity of upgrades.

The two games will be available together on a single Blu-Ray disc for the PlayStation 3 version, but sold separately on PlayStation Vita due to storage issues.

The games contain improved maps and character models and textures as well as improved lighting, shadowing and enhanced pre-rendered movies with better quality in high definition. Trophies for both games will be added. All controllable and other major characters have new character models, and monsters and minor characters have rearranged textures to improve quality. The game now plays at 16:9 widescreen and some scenes have been adjusted with different camera angles to accommodate for it.

As the HD remasters will be of the games' International versions, they have some new additions for North American and PAL region players. The Final Fantasy X International was never released in North America and includes a new Sphere Grid option, new optional bosses and new abilities. Final Fantasy X-2 International + Last Mission was a Japan exclusive release, and adds new dresspheres, a Monster Create system, and Coliseum, and a new dungeon, Yadonoki Tower.

Both games will get improved voice audio, and have around 60 tracks remastered.

Yoshinori Kitase has confirmed that those who pick up both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 on PlayStation Vita will be able to take advantage of swapping saves between systems allowing fans to transfer data between the standalone Vita version and the PlayStation 3 counterpart.

Kazushige Nojima is writing a "new episode" for the Remaster that will be a 30-minute audio drama at the end credits featuring a new cast and new character voices.
