While the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster won’t be out in the West until March, it hit Japanese shelves last month. So join me as I dust off my old PS2 and compare just how much better Final Fantasy X looks on the PS3 with its new HD coat of paint.

[*Note: The PS2 version I used in this video was the Japanese release of Final Fantasy X: International.]

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on December 26, 2013. It will out be in North America on March 18, 2014 and Europe on March 21, 2014.
