Along with announcing a Collector's Edition for the PS3 version today, Square Enix has finally decided to let us in on their plans for the PS Vita version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD. Both PS3 and PS Vita versions have been confirmed to be launching on March 18th, 2014.
Besides being made available digitally via the PS Store, the Vita version will also hit retail, except only the first game (FFX Remaster) will be included on the PS Vita Card. A voucher will be included for users to download Final Fantasy X-2 Remaster, which is a bit odd, though we assume the reasoning has something to do with space requirements and the PS Vita Card capacities.
The $79.99 PS3 Collector's Edition will hit the Square Enix Online Store exclusively (like the Lightning Returns CE) and will include a hardcover artbook, the FINAL FANTASY X HD Remaster Original Soundtrack and five lithographs.
See the beauty shot of the CE below along with the fresh new screens.

FINAL FANTASY X/X 2 HD Remaster celebrates two of the most cherished and beloved entries to the world renowned franchise that has sold over 100 million units over the past twenty five years. FINAL FANTASY X introduced players to the world of Spira, and left a legendary impression on the industry with its stunning visuals, heart wrenching story, and fully voiced characters – a first in a FINAL FANTASY title. FINAL FANTASY X 2 marked the first ever direct sequel to a FINAL FANTASY title, and returned players to Spira with an even more addictive and fast paced combat system. Now completely remastered in gorgeous HD, FINAL FANTASY X/X 2 HD Remaster brings this timeless classic forward to the current generation of fans, old and new alike. FINAL FANTASY X tells the story of Tidus, a star blitzball player who journeys with a young and beautiful summoner named Yuna on her quest to save the world of Spira from an endless cycle of destruction wrought by the colossal menace known as "Sin". FINAL FANTASY X 2 returns to the world of Spira where High Summoner Yuna travels with her companions Rikku and Paine to unravel the mysteries of the messages hidden in the spheres she hunts, not knowing that the answers she seeks may change everything.
