FFX Tidus Yuna

Square Enix has put up a Steam store page for the PC release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The release is set for May 12, and no price has been revealed yet.

The Steam page includes a description:

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.

Key Features:

  • 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.

The possibility of a PC release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster was leaked back in early December 2015, alongside the PC versions of Final Fantasy VI, both Danganronpa games and Code of Princess, among many others, and several of the games mentioned in the leak have been since released or officially announced for Steam.

The PC version seems mostly the same as the PS4 version of the release, which came after the initial PS3 and PS Vita releases of the remaster. The Steam version adds the autosave feature and the game boosters, seemingly similar to those found in the PC releases of Final Fantasy VII, VIII and IX. It will also include both English and Japanese voices.

Once Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster releases on Steam, the platform will have almost every current mainline Final Fantasy game and several direct sequels, only missing the first two games and Final Fantasy XII.
