: Sample of the new arranged music!
I thought I'd make a thread about this because it's significant news - at least to me who already finds the soundtrack of FFX to be flawless. If I'm completely honest, I'm worried that they might ruin this, but here's the encouraging news.
Final Fantasy X will see around 60 of its tracks rearranged for the HD version. Masashi Hamauzu – one of the game’s original composers and also responsible for Final Fantasy XIII’s score – has even participated in bringing these new arrangements to life.
Hamauzu contributed with 20 tracks in the original FFX. There are a total of approximately 91 songs in the game. I'm hoping that these rearanged songs will actually sound very similar to the ones we've been listening to for years. Here's a couple of songs that Hamauzu made:

People of the Far North: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPy8CUdwPgg
The magazine also talks about trophies in the game – suggesting there could be some that provide a real challenge to the player
Platinum seekers just might want to prepare themselves to face 200 lightning bolts, just in case.
Trophies for killing Penance and all the prerequisite dark aeons? Lord Jyscal, have mercy on us.
