Rumour: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD is Getting a New Ending
Were you unhappy with the original 100% completion ending of Final Fantasy X-2? Well, you’re in luck because the upcoming HD remastered version will have a brand new ending scene following the credits.
Japanese publication Shounen Jump says that Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will come with a new “30-minute drama” at the end credits of the game. This new ending sequence will include the introduction of new characters and new voice acting. I read one report indicating that this would include voice work by the original cast.
If you’re worried about how this might turn out, you can take solace in the fact that the new ending drama is being written by Kazushige Nojima who is the writer behind Final Fantasy X and X-2. If that doesn’t make you feel better, he was also the writer of Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Kingdom Hearts I and II and the upcoming Final Fantasy XV.
Fun Fact: Nojima also wrote the lyrics to FF8’s opening song Liberi Fatali and Suteki da Ne and the Hymn of the Fayth in Final Fantasy X. The man can write a good song too. Best of all, we can’t blame him for the actual songs in X-2. We can blame him for the fact there was singing, though.
