Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be heading to Steam this Thursday, Square Enix have announced.
Considering the SNES and PSX catalogues have been pretty firmly mined and we’ve already got the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, it’s hardly a surprise that the Japanese giant has begun porting the PlayStation 2-era Final Fantasy games to PC.
This remaster offers up HD-ified graphics, a “remastered/rearranged” BGM, the International Edition content (which anyone who played FFX in Europe has already experienced), plus an auto-save function and some game boosters including high-speed and no-encounter modes. I’m not sure whether the International Edition stuff also includes Last Mission, though.
Final Fantasy X was pretty divisive, but I quite enjoyed it. Very silly plot, but good combat mechanics and a decent-ish levelling system. Final Fantasy X-2, on the other hand, is certifiably insane and includes both a massage mini-game and a scene in a hot-tub where the protagonists compare breast sizes. It’s… an interesting game, but we’ll talk more about this when I inevitably write up some port impressions later this week.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be summoned onto Steam on 12 May.
