Xenosaga HD Collection is a proposed remastering of the Xenosaga trilogy in HD high-definition widescreen in order to preserve the legacy of the Xenosaga series.

The Xenosaga series was released on PlayStation 2, which was only capable of low-definition, and released on 5 physical DVDs discs - none of the games are on digital distribution services like the PlayStation Store. Episode I and Episode III were never released in Europe.

Emulation Edit

Currently, the only way to play Xenosaga in HD is to use PCSX2 emulator on PC using a widescreen patch. While this method works generally fine, there are some minor visual issues.

Episode I

  • Some save locations will freeze the entire emulator, so it is recommended to save the game using a save state before saving.
  • Best used with HW hacks offset 0 by 1000.

Episode II

  • Best used with HW hacks offset 0 by 1000.

Episode III

  • Best used with HW hacks offset 0 by 1000.

Development Edit

A petition created by fans has amassed over 11,000 signatures.

In July 2015, Bandai Namco director Katsuhiro Harada tweeted, "To Xenosaga Fan. About HD collection: I don't expect miracle by Petition any more. I'll find another way!! Thanks."[1]

Notes Edit

  • The FMVs in Episode I and II are in 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • Episode I has a special version called Xenosaga I Reloaded.
  • Episode I came on a dual-layer disc. Episode II and Episode III both came on 2 discs.
  • Widescreen values for the series have been posted here and here.
  • When Episode III is widescreen hacked, Febronia's eyes are seen blinking when she is supposed to be dead.(1:05)

Proposals Edit

  • All three Episodes were censored, although most fans have issues with the censorship in Episode III. A fan created an uncensored mod.[2]
  • Suggestions video.[3]
  • Dual English and Japanese audio.
