Square Enix 'undecided' on international content inclusion in Final Fantasy 10-2 HD

New, 22 comments

Final Fantasy 10-2 HD may not include some bonus content featured in the international version of the game, despite previous reports that it would, according to Famitsu.

The publication reports Square Enix is currently "undecided" as to wether or not to include extra content from Final Fantasy 10-2 International + Last Mission in the HD remaster's release.

"As for the HD remastered version, [the inclusion of] Last Mission, an event occuring three months after FF10-2's conclusion, is undecided at present," reads the report, which we translated from Japanese.

The International + Last Mission extended version, released a year after the game's initial launch, included three new dresspheres, new bosses and the Last Mission episode, an adventure set three months after the end of the main game. Protagonists Yuna, Rikku and Paine climb the massive Yadonoki Tower, an 80-level dungeon similar to Final Fantasy 10's labyrinthine Via Purifico, that features a major boss battle every 20th level.

Conversations between the characters within the dungeon reveal the fates of many characters introduced throughout the two games, serving as a sort of epilogue. The extended version also included a new Creature Create more where players can capture and train monsters.

When reached for comment, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase told Polygon the inclusion of Last Mission could be dependent on the capacity of the game disc.

"The inclusion of the Last Mission is currently under consideration," he said in a statement. "We're looking into the possibilities with the ROM capacity and development schedule in mind."

In September 2011, Square Enix announced it would release an HD remaster of Final Fantasy 10 for PlayStation 3 and Vita. In March the company announced Final Fantasy 10-2 HD would be included on the same disc for PS3 and available separately for Vita. Both versions, according to a report in Famitsu, would contain content from the international versions of the titles, which were previously unavailable outside of Japan.
