Final Fantasy X producer talks about the game's infamous laughing scene

The good kind of cheese

Sometimes you create a game with moments that define the experience, and stick with players for years to come. Sometimes those moments become memes, and that's exactly what happened with the 'laughing' scene in Final Fantasy X. Now that a new generation is getting to expereicne that laughing moment in a new way with Final Fantasy X HD Remaster, Game Informer decided to ask Producer Yoshinori Kitase about his feelings on the way the scene is regarded nowadays.

Even in the real world, actions taken by two people in a budding romance are generally embarrassing memories when you look back on them. I believe that this scene depicts that mental state very well. This scene of course is still made fun of by fans, but I imagine that it is because it greatly touched “something” in everyone’s heart for it to be such a memorable scene even after 18 years.

Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster's retail release requires you to insert the game card to play X-2

Ugghhhhh...

As you are well aware by now, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster's retail release in the states include Final Fantasy X on a game card, and X-2 as a download code. Now here's where things get a little annoying. Even though X-2 is completely download, you can't play it without having the Final Fantasy X game card inserted into your Switch. A minor nuisance, but it stings that much more for fans who were hoping both games came on one card in the first place.

No, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster does not have amiibo functionality

That amiiblows

There's a bit of confusion going around with Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, as the North American retail box states that the game includes amiibo support. This seems to be nothing more than a printing error, as game boxes from other regions do not include the amiibo mention. This will likely get fixed in the next printing of Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, as long as their is one!
