Square Enix dropped two Final Fantasy news bombs today.

First up, the PS3 version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will now be featured in an extra-limited collector’s edition set containing the hardcover art book packaging that also comes with the pre-order limited edition, as well as a set of five lithographs and the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster original soundtrack. The soundtrack is no ordinary soundtrack though. It’s a Blu-ray disc packed with 6 hours of music set to images of the game’s most memorable moments.

The collector’s edition will be sold exclusively on the Square Enix Online Store for $79.99. Again, this will only be for the PS3 version.

While the Vita isn’t getting a fancy collector’s edition of its own, there is more news to report about the portable version. For starters, Square Enix has confirmed that the Vita version will ship day and date with the PS3 version on March 18, 2014, supporting cross-save functionality to boot.

Additionally, for those who have been wondering how the two games will be paired together on Vita, it has been confirmed that a retail edition will be sold containing a cartridge copy of Final Fantasy X HD alongside a PSN voucher for a copy of Final Fantasy X-2 HD. So it’s still a two-in-one deal, only one game will be a digital download. By comparison, the PS3 version will offer both titles on a single Blu-ray disc.

Both versions will also be made available in all digital combo packs, but there will be no way to split the pair and just by one of the games. Sorry, you won’t be able to just buy Final Fantasy X on its own.
