Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster On PC This Week

Final Fantasy barely touched PCs for years (well, other than being made with them), but Square Enix have been making up for that. They’re flinging the RPGs at us lately, catching up on the decades with fancied-up ports and remasters. Next in line are 2001’s Final Fantasy X and its 2003 sequel Final Fantasy X-2 [official site], which are finally coming to PC together on Thursday, both fancied up a little.

They’re arriving together as the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster collection, as released for PlayStation 3 and Vita in 2014 then PS4 last year. This news comes via a Steam store page popping up.

Both games are fancied-up in this collection, though they’re remasters not remakes so don’t expect massive changes. I understand it’s a bit prettier, with nicer textures and features like better facial animation, and background music is rearranged a little. They also include ‘boosters’, as Squeenix’s Final Fantasies tend to, with options such as high speed and no random encounters.

Since 2013, Square Enix have (re)released Final Fantasies III, IV, IV: The After Years, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, XIII, XIII-2, Lightning Returns: XIII, and Type-0 on PC in various ported and revamped forms. Which surely is all leading up to a PC announcement for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV? Please anime boyband roadtrip please, thank you, please.

As for Final Fantasy X itself, I haven’t the foggiest what it’s like. Folks who were consoling back then, what do you make of it? Here, this trailer is from the PS4 port:
