Square Enix has announced the release date for Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster on Switch and Xbox One.
We first heard about this collection of Final Fantasy games for Switch during a Nintendo Direct back in September, but during the presentation, no release dates were given. These two also aren’t the only Final Fantasy games coming to the Switch as Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age were also announced at the same time. Do keep in mind that these games will also be heading to the Xbox One as well.
Here’s a little synopsis of these PS2 classics, courtesy of Square Enix themselves:
“FINAL FANTASY X follows the story of superstar athlete Tidus, whose fate intertwines with the beautiful summoner Yuna as they embark on a pilgrimage to save the world of Spira. FINAL FANTASY X-2 takes place two years later, following the stories of Yuna, Rikku, and Paine in their exciting adventures to uncover ancient secrets and overcome powerful enemies. Having shipped over 14 million units worldwide to date, FINAL FANTASY X / X-2 HD Remaster invites new players to discover a stunning RPG adventure you will never forget.”
Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster launches for the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on April 16.
In other Final Fantasy-related news, Square Enix also announced the release date for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age on Switch, and Xbox One, which is a remastered version of the PS2 classic that came out on PS4 back in 2017.
Also, Square Enix has just unveiled a new digital card game based on the Final Fantasy series that is planned to launch in Japan sometime in 2019 on smartphones and PC.
