The rumors were true: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is coming to Steam. Even better: you won't have long to wait, as it launches in just two days (May 12).

Apart from improved audio and visuals, the remaster includes International Edition content: new Sphere Grids, bosses, behind the scenes development features, and more for X, and new dresspheres, Garment Grids, a bonus ending, and a Pokemon-like Creature Creator/Monster Arena mode for X-2. Both feature optional Japanese voice acting, auto saving, and five game boosters that offer high speed and no encounter modes.

 

In other words, if your last experience with either or both games was the original PS2 release, there are plenty of good reasons to pick this version up and play through it again. And if it's your first time, there's all the more content for you to experience. Win win!

 

System requirements are quite modest, so even if you're on a mediocre laptop, you may be able to run it.

 

Minimum:

 

  • OS: Windows Vista or later
  • Processor: 2GHz Dual Core CPU
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT VRAM 512MB or later / ATI Radeon HD 2600XT VRAM 512MB or later
  • Storage: 37 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

 

Recommended:

 

  • OS: Windows Vista or later
  • Processor: 2.4GHz quad-core CPU
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 450 / AMD Radeon HD 5750 with 512MB
  • Storage: 40 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card

 

As for price, that's not yet listed but the PlayStation Vita version went for $39.99 at release and the two halves of Final Fantasy XIII go for about $20 each on Steam, so that's reasonable to expect with X/X-2.
