If there’s any series out there with some of the most iconic and memorable music in gaming, it has to be Final Fantasy. Luckily, with Sony and Square Enix working on the HD remastering of Final Fantasy X & X-2 for later this year, Square Enix is paying extra special attention to some of the classic tunes and pieces from the soundtrack for Final Fantasy X HD.

In a new trailer released this week from Gamescom, Sony and Square Enix present a short comparison with SD footage with the original Battle Theme in the video’s first half, followed in the later half by HD footage with the remastered version of the theme. A lot’s changed in 12 years, no?

Sony also notes in its announcement on the PlayStation Blog that Final Fantasy X HD will also feature over 60 total tracks that have been rearranged or remastered from the original Final Fantasy X soundtrack with new HD audio – fans of the original, prepare to be excited for new-found Final Fantasy auditory bliss.

Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD releases later this year on PS3 and PS Vita. Check out the trailer below, and give your eyes a listen:
