Square-Enix has been slowly adding the entire Final Fantasy library to Steam. Last month FF9 made its long-overdue debut, and it appears this month it will be followed by FFX and FFX-2 in one package. The page for the game is now up on the Steam website with a promise of a May 12 release. No price is currently listed, but since FF9 was $20, we can postulate the cost of this one will be in that range.
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.
Note that this is the same ‘HD Remaster” that has already appeared on Playstations Three and Four, with one special distinction: unlike those releases, this one will come with the cheat modes that your average console gamer would consider an abomination. Square also mentions “rearranged” background music, but it’s unclear what that means.
- 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.
If Steam is correct (and Steam has been wrong in the past) you’ll get to play both FFXes on PC in two days. We’ll see what appears come May 12.
