May 12th will mark a day of celebration for fans of the Final Fantasy franchise as a listing on Steam has revealed that Steam users will be able to enjoy Square Enix's Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster on PC. Having seen numerous re-releases on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster port to Steam further strengthens Square Enix's dedication to provide as much access as possible to the popular franchise.
It is important to keep note that this is simply a remastered version and not a remake of the beloved entry into the Final Fantasy franchise. Many textures were redone and replaced, the game soundtrack improved, International Edition content included, and some handy features were included such as "Quick Healing," which allowed for party-wide healing outside the battle menus while exploring. However what will set the PC port apart from its console brothers is that Square Enix has included 5 "Game Boosters" as well as an auto-save feature. Only two "Game Booster" features have been revealed on the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster's product page, those being "No Encounters" and "High Speed."
There exists no information concerning the price of Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster, however it is speculated that it will share the same price as the title does on the PlayStation 4, $19.99. Square Enix, as has been done with all other Final Fantasy ports, has created incredibly low minimum requirements to run Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster:
- OS: Windows Vista or later
