A little while back, Square Enix revealed that most Final Fantasy games were going to be made available on Steam at some point. The Japanese publisher kept its promise as best as it could, releasing pretty much all currently available main games of the series, with the exception of Final Fantasy X and its sequel Final Fantasy X-2. The HD remaster of both games appeared on the Steam database a while back, so we knew it was coming, and today we have finally learned when both games will be available for purchase on Steam.
A few hours ago, the Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster Steam Page has finally gone live, confirming a May 12th release date. Like other PC releases of older Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster will come with some additional features not found in the PS3/PSVita and PS4 releases such as a few in-game boosters like hi-speed and no encounter mode.
Like the Sony consoles release, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster PC is based on the International releases, which include additional content that was not available in the original Final Fantasy X North American release and the Western Final Fantasy X-2 release such as the Expert Sphere Grid, the Dark Aeons and Penance optional bosses and much more.
FINAL FANTASY X tells the story of a star blitzball player, Tidus, who journeys with a young and beautiful summoner named Yuna on her quest to save the world of Spira from an endless cycle of destruction wrought by the colossal menace Sin.
FINAL FANTASY X-2 returns to the world of Spira two years after the beginning of the Eternal Calm. Having been shown a mysterious but familiar image in a sphere, Yuna becomes a Sphere Hunter and along with her companions Rikku and Paine, embarks on a quest around the world to find the answers to the mystery within.
Based on the international versions of the games that were previously only released in Japan and Europe, FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster brings these timeless classics forward to the current generation of fans, old and new alike.
- Characters, monsters, and environments have been fine-tuned to HD detail, providing a richer, deeper FINAL FANTASY visual experience.
- Other features in the PC version include remastered/rearranged BGM,
- International Edition content,
- Auto-save and 5 game boosters including high speed and no encounter modes.
FInal Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster will launch on Steam later this week, on May 12th. The game is also avaiable on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
