That's right, caught by surprise announcement at the Tokyo Game Show to see again in our Final Fantasy X and PSVita PS3, and just give information, leaving many doubts. It was rumored that it would be an HD remaster as we have already seen in our PS3. Nothing is further from reality, to our knowledge from PSTime will be a remake using the engine of Final Fantasy XIII.

Here are some details:

Use the same engine that Final Fantasy XIII and adapted to PSVita.
All that is made from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
The sets and scenes in HD remasters CGI will implement a "filter" FFXIII Engine.
The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine "Luminous".
The Blitzball undergo small changes.
Online options will include (not yet known details).
The release date in Japan in fiscal 2012.
That's all the details we could learn from PSTime, soon we will offer new information.

Will gladly buy at more than full price if true. Graphically Final Fantasy XIII is one of the most amazing games of this generation, and I loved the gameplay in FFX.

I said wow.

Nice

by the way, why no FFVII remake?!
Well everyone's assumption was it's much easier to change FFX to be HD than a game that came out in 1997.

This rumor is highly unlikely. Wishful thinking.

Hot if true. Let's hope for new game+, difficulty levels, et cetera.
new game + should be mandatory for all RPGs, anyways sounds to good to be true guess this is the reason why there is only one game announced instead of a pack of 2 or 3 HD remasters (only if this si true I mean)

They will remake FFX-2 and FFXII and sell it to you as well. Why split profits, when you can make money 3x?

All that is made from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.

Does re-using the majority of the old assets really make it a remake?

They could just use cutscene models for everything this time.
