I’m not burning a candle for a Vita version of the best game in this series, Final Fantasy XII, given what a slog of a time Square Enix seems to be having bringing high-def versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2 to the system. It was supposed to be here ages ago, wasn’t it? For most of this year, it was in “TBD 2013” limbo before slipping to 2014. A few weeks ago, we heard the PlayStation 3 remasters were headed to North American on March 18, 2014, but nothing official about the Vita versions.

Until today: Square Enix product manager Sakura Minamida says the Vita version is also coming on March 18, 2014. It’ll support cross-save (between the PS3 and Vita) and it’ll go for $40. You’ll be able to buy it at retail or digitally for either system, and whichever version you buy, it’ll include both X and X-2 (in Japan, last I heard, the Vita versions were going to be sold separately; the games are out in Japan on December 26).

The other last-minute surprise, though not really, is that Square Enix is going to sell a collector’s edition of the PlayStation 3 version of the game, exclusive to the Square Enix online store. The company’s tucking a full-size 40-page artbook in, the soundtrack on a Blu-ray music disc (over six hours, paired with images from the game, which probably beats holiday music played over video of a fireplace), and five lithographs of character and game art. The collector’s version will set you back $80.

FFXII wasn't the best FF... it was a boring piece of crap lol. All the playable characters were pointless to the story except Ashe and Basch (no, Belthier did not matter, he was just your ride, Fran was fanservice, Vaan and Panelo were pointless and annoying). The license grid was dull and not very good at making unique characters, was all samey. The story was literally Star Wars' story. The gameplay was basically an offline MMO and MMOs generally don't have good gameplay. Always dull. The only thing moderately fun was monster hunting (which was meh cause there were only like.. 10 different monster models and then endless reskins of zzz) and running around the world (which woulda been better if it was less brown, even the green areas were brownish other than a very select few.).

But neat at FFX/X-2 coming to Vita and PS3 in HD Remix. I wonder if it's cross-buy. But given SE's greed, prolly not.
