This page list all three versions of Final Fantasy X-2.
Overseas changes[edit | edit source]
- The second half of the "1000 Words" FMV is changed from the Japanese version:
- Instead of Yuna smoothly (and with little visual effect) changing into Lenne, she erupts in light sparkles and the camera angle is different in the close-up.
- In the original version, a ray of bright light illuminates Lenne in the second solo segment, while the International version merely makes a fast camera movement over the non-illuminated Lenne.
- After showing the scene with Bevelle guards aiming at Lenne and Shuyin, the Japanese version shows an illuminated Yuna, while the International version shows Lenne performing a different moveset.
- After the scene where Bevelle guards kill Lenne and Shuyin, the Japanese version shows the illuminated Lenne singing alone, while the International version show Yuna and Lenne singing back-to-back.
- After the scene with Shuyin and Lenne lying on the floor and looking at each other's face, the Japanese version shows illuminated Yuna from whom light shadows quickly fades away and she finishes the concert alone. The International version continues showing Yuna and Lenne singing back-to-back, then Lenne fading in light to Yuna who then finishes the concert alone.
- The Cat Nip and Enterprise accessories have swapped locations. In the original Japanese version, Enterprise was available in a treasure chest in Via Infinito after beating the boss on Cloister 40. In the US and PAL versions, Cat Nip is there and Enterprise can be obtained by pushing Tobli and his gang into the elevator on Celsius in Chapter 2, which rewards the Cat Nip in the original Japanese version.
- English Lyrics, along with translated lyrics in French, German, Italian and Spanish, appear in vocal songs in the European version.
- Introduction of Creature Creator system along with the Major Numerus and Almighty Shinra superbosses.
- Addition of two new dresspheres and four new Garment Grids.
- Altered effects for various accessories.
- Inclusion of a new game titled Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission, set three months after Final Fantasy X-2.
- White Mage now starts with Cure already learned.
- The Cat Nip accessory now generates constant Berserk and Slow effects on the wearer.
- Trema can now cast spells without needing MP.
- Japanese subtitles altered to match English voice acting.
- Japanese lyrics appear in vocal songs.
- Remastering in high definition of Final Fantasy X-2: International and Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission.
- The overseas version uses the alternate version of the "1000 Words" FMV in the game rather than the FMV used in the original Japanese version.
- Unlike the original version of Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission, where one had the option of loading a save file from Final Fantasy X-2, the HD Remaster automatically assumes the player had a perfect 100% complete save and playthrough with the perfect ending when cutscenes occur in Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission.
- FMV cutscenes have been cropped.
- Translated lyrics in Korean and Traditional Chinese in the Japanese version, alongside French, German, Italian and Spanish in the English version, appear in vocal songs. English and Japanese lyrics do not appear in vocal songs, as akin to the original versions respectively.
- Further enhanced graphics.
- Version 1.01
- Music now continues after exiting battle, rather than resetting.
- Random number generation is now truly random.
Microsoft Windows (via Steam)[edit | edit source]
- The PlayStation 4 version, encapsulated into an application hypervisor. The hypervisor can pause the game even when normal pausing isn't possible, which can be used to exploit things such as Sphere Break.
- An option to choose between Japanese and English audio: This choice depends on the UI language choice. Those who choose a western European language (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish) get the English audio. Choosing the Eastern Asian languages (Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese) results in the Japanese audio.
- Several built-in graphic options: Screen resolution, windowing mode (windowed vs. full screen), brightness, texture quality, shadow quality, anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, color correction, and HDAO parameters are adjustable.
- Customizable keyboard and controller buttons. In-game PlayStation button prompts were replaced by appropriate platform-specific buttons.
- Auto-save functionality added.
- Special game boosting features:
- Turbo: Speeds the game up by 2x or 4x. Only BGM is heard when in use. Menus and cutscenes are unaffected.
- Supercharge: Party members recover 20% of their HP and MP every second.
- Enemy Encounter Override: Increases or negates enemy encounter rate.
- Auto-battle: Yuna, Rikku, and Paine automatically use whatever their first ability is.
- Hide HUD: Hides the user interface.
