I hope you've been good boys and girls this year, because this Christmas you may find that Santa leaves a copy of the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster Original Soundtrack at the bottom of your stockings.
This Blu-Ray disc will feature 94 tracks from Final Fantasy X (three of which were previously unreleased), with new arrangements or recordings taking the place of about 60 of those, as well as 10 bonus tracks from Final Fantasy X-2. So it's a pretty extensive package, and will be available for purchase on Wednesday December 25th this year. The Final Fantasy X-2 Official Soundtrack will also be re-released on the same day, featuring 6 new tracks from 'Last Mission'.
The soundtrack will feature arrangements by Masashi Hamauzu, Junya Nakano, Tsutomu Narita, Hirosato Noda and Ryo Yamazaki.
Check out the official website to hear a pretty remastered version of To Zanarkand.

Square Enix has released a new set of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIscreenshots, the majority highlighting the reappearance of Oerba Yun Fang.
After Final Fantasy XIII, Fang and Vanille transformed and slept within a crystal pillar preventing the collision of Cocoon and Pulse for centuries, but awaken in Lightning Returns. At first, they lived under the care of the Order, until Fang set out for the Dead Dunes, Nova Chrysalia’s barren desert, in search of a long-lost relic.
Lightning eventually reunites with Fang to explore the ancient ruins buried beneath the sands of the Dead Dunes. Fang will fight alongside Lightning during battles here.
You’ll also see screenshots of the ‘Last One’ Skeleton monster. There are a limited number of monsters for each species in Lightning Returns, and the last survivor of a species is known as the Last One. It is “extraordinarily powerful,” but when it’s eradicated, the species becomes extinct. Of course, if you find the battle difficult, you can always use Lightning’s EP Escape ability. Although some monster species can never be completely destroyed.

This weekend, Square Enix showed off some new footage of Drakengard 3 during a NicoNico Live presentation featuring producer Takasama Shiba, along with some of the game’s voice actresses. During the event, they revealed a DLC costume of Drakengard protagonist Caim, which can be worn by Zero.
The video is a clip from the event, where they revealed that Zero will have a “slim-fit” version of Drakengard protagonist Caim’s attire. In addition to the costume, Zero will also be able to wield his sword, which is said to be quite powerful, but will require some leveling up.
Drakengard 3’s weapons have their own individiual stories, which will be told upon leveling them up, such as the Spear’s sad story, and the Sword’s rather psychotic tale. According to Drakengard 3’s developers, Caim’s weapon will also have its own story; however, they say that those who wish to acquire the weapon can do so by purchasing the guide book of the game.
Producer Takasama Shiba also mentioned that enough fans voice their opinions on wanting to acquire Caim’s sword without purchasing the guidebook, they will add it in the form of a DLC, or something else.
Finally, the footage concludes with a brief look at one of Drakengard 3’s new weapons, which appears to be a hand-to-hand weapon attached to Zero’s right arm and leg.
