When Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster hit the PS3 and PS Vita platforms later this year, fans who’ve played the original games can expect at least 30 minutes’ worth of brand new content, in the form of a new story episode cutscene that will play in the game’s staff roll credits, the latest issue of Weekly Jump magazine has revealed.

final fantasy x remake Final Fantasy X/X 2 HD Remaster to include new 30 minute long cutscene in its credits

This new episode cutscene is being written by Kazushige Nojima himself – he’s the man who wrote the story scenarios for FFX and FFX-2, as well as a whole bunch of other Final Fantasy games – and will apparently feature new “cast and character voices”… which seems to imply that there will be new characters introduced in this 30-minute-long extra episode.

What could this mean? One conservative way of interpreting that is to presume that this extra story episode will play in the staff roll credits of Final Fantasy X HD Remaster, and that the “new cast and character voices” refer to characters who appeared in X-2 but not in X. If you think about it, adding a 30-minute cutscene that bridges the gap between the story scenarios in X and X-2 would make a lot of sense.

But that’s the conservative way of reading into Weekly Jump magazine’s revelation; the magazine did not exactly say that the cutscene would play in FFX’s ending credits – there’s a chance that this new episode is meant to be unlocked only after you finish both games.

If that’s the case, then this additional episode’s “new cast and character voices” might lead to something bigger… does anyone want a Final Fantasy X-3?
