In the early 2000s, originally developed by Square on the PlayStation 2 Final Fantasy X and X 2 HD Remaster is a high-definition remaster of the role-playing video games Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. A year after the events of X-2 a new audio drama was set and it also features story content previously only found in the International versions. Making certain content accessible to players outside of Japan for the first time, this game is based on the international versions of both games and this collection also saw graphical and musical revisions.
While Square Enix assisted the process and published the collection the Chinese studio Virtuos handled large parts of its development. In Japan in December 2013, the game was released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It released worldwide in March 2014. Then it released for PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in May 2015, May 2016, and April 2019 respectively. The collection received positive reviews and was sold favorably. The chance to play through the games on the new platforms and the graphical upgrade was praised by many critics. While some of the collection’s added content drew mixed opinions some received criticism for a few minor upgrade faults and uneven quality between the two.
