I don’t think this will come as much as a surprise to anyone. With the recent Steam releases of Final Fantasy III, IV, VII, VIII, IX and the entire XIII franchise it was only a matter of time before the awesome remaster of X and X-2 were ported to the PC. dfdf
If you have not yet had the opportunity to play these remastered titles then this new release should be a great reason to do so. Originally released for the PS2, the developers made the most of the console’s expanded storage space, with Final Fantasy X becoming the first game in the franchise to feature a fully voice acted cast and impressive cutscenes. Okay, so some of the dialogue doesn’t quite hit the mark but ultimately that doesn’t matter, since what we do get is a rich (if cliche) Final Fantasy story, with deep and likable characters and a brilliantly addictive progression system thanks to the sphere grid. I was even a massive fan of the turn based battle system which meant combat could at times be tough, but never really stress-inducing. It was more about the preparation before hand which I love.
Hopefully this is a good sign that perhaps Final Fantasy XII, also a PS2 game, will receive similar treatment with a current generation release. As far as I can tell it remains the only game in the franchise that has never been re-released to another format – I think something needs to be done about that!
According to Steam, Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster is slated for release 12th May 2016.

Here is episode one to get you started:
