Another Final Fantasy entry is making its way to the Nintendo Switch, in the form of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster launching on April 16th, 2019.
In a tweet released by Nintendo of America’s twitter account, the company detailed the launch of one of the PlayStation 2’s most popular titles to come in the following months. First announced during a September 2018 Nintendo Direct, Final Fantasy X/X-2 joins a deep list of Final Fantasy titles that were revealed to be making their way to Nintendo’s hybrid home console.
Originally released on the PlayStation 2 in December 2001, Final Fantasy X became one of the system’s most popular titles to own, succeeding both commercially and critically currently sitting at a 92 on MetaCritic. It was the 8th best selling PlayStation 2 game, and became the first PlayStation 2 game to reach two million and four million sold copies. Final Fantasy X-2, which was released in November 2003 on the PlayStation 2, was a direct sequel to the main story line found within X. X-2 follows Yuna from its predecessor, as she seeks to resolve political conflicts in Spira before they lead to war, while also searching for her lost love Tidus from X. The game was also the first entry in the series to feature an all female cast. The original version of the game currently sits at an 85 on MetaCritic. The HD Remastered bundle of both games, which was released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, currently sits at an average 84 on MetaCritic between the three releases.
