Can I start with this game as my first Final Fantasy?
Yes. Final Fantasy X, like the other numbered FF titles, is a standalone story and world that requires no previous knowledge of the series. X-2 is a direct follow up to that game so it’s recommended you play it after completing X.

Turn based and random encounters?
Yes to both.

What’s new with this port over the PS2 original?
Based on the PS4 version of the ports both titles feature visual enhancements over the original release on PS2, a new arrangement soundtrack, content from the international releases of the games and a new audio epilogue for the series.

Can you can choose between the original and arrangement OST?
Yes.

Can you can choose the English dub and the original Japanese audio?
No. Though the import Switch release (both games on a single cart) can run the game with Japanese VO and Japanese text if you switch the region of your console.

The PC version of this collection included gameplay modifiers (tweak encounter rate, turbo mode, supercharge and auto-battle) not seen in previous ports. Are they included on Switch/XB1?
Users who got copies of the Switch version of the game have confirmed the option does not exist on the platform. TBA for the Xbox release but it’s unlikely.

Can I buy the games separately?
Not with this new release, no.

Play Anywhere?
No.

Xbox One X enhancements?
It appears so. Despite not having the appropriate tags on the Xbox web/store pages the final box art shows a "Xbox One X Enhancements" and "4K" logo.

Does this port suffer from the same music issues as the FFIX/FFVII port?
While the music, and an additional RNG, issue did occur in the PS4 version it was eventually resolved with a patch. Looking at early impressions that fix has apparently has carried over to this release.

I want to buy the game physically on Switch. How do the different regional releases breakdown?
North America: FFX on cart, FFX-2 as a download.
PAL Regions: FFX on cart, FFX-2 as a download.
Southeast Asia: FFX/X-2 are both on the same cart and do not require any additional download. You can also access the JPN audio/text by changing the region of your console.
Hong Kong: Same as the Southeast Asian release but with a different cover (logo on white background).
Japan: Also includes both games on the cartridge and includes English VO/text like the HK and Asian releases.







Metacritic (PS4) - 84%

Switch/Xbox reviews TBA.

Contemplating whether or not I should get this for the Switch. On one hand, I would love to go through X-2 again. On the other hand, I've bought this game like 4 times and I don't want to buy FFX yet again. Also, unlike FFXII, AFAIK this adds nothing new or worth the quadruple dip.

Struggling to choose between Xbox One x version for 4k + achievements or the switch version for the "on the go".

Same debate for FF12 zodiac age but at least zodiac will be 60 fps on the X1X.

Does anyone have any feedback about the X version so far?

Woah that's a bummer, especially weird as the Switch ports of VII and IX had turbo mode

I was gonna give X another chance on the Switch, but no boosters unfortunately means no buy for me. What an annoying exclusion.

e: oh geez, it's also full price? Lol okay, no thanks.

This is a deal breaker for me. Why wont they include it on the switch version, seems stupid.

Both are fantastic. I have no clue why these games are the target of memes. FFX is outrageously good and very memorable. FFX-2 is pretty good as well, it got some pacing issues at the start though admittedly.

I must resist... Own the game on 3/4 plattforms already, but Ff7 remembered me, how much fun the classic ffs are and with a broken vita the switch port ist the best way to play this in the train.

At least you get 2 games for 50€, Ff12 feels to expensive (but of course I am going to buy it).

I’d love to own this on Switch but it being double the price of the PS4 version is killing it for me. I find that hard to justify, especially when I bought the originals and the PS3 remaster already.

Wait, this comes out tomorrow? Dang, and I just bought XC2~Torna, too...

I haven't played this since PS2, so I'm probably going to pick this up before VII or IX. The HD visuals look pretty fresh, and while it's more money getting both games for $50 is still pretty good dollar per hour.

It's petty, but I'm wondering...which is the greater problem in these ports, music bugs in VII/IX or lack of fast-forward features in X? I suppose it's a bit subjective, so I'm interested to hear what everyone thinks.

Tempted, but I already own it on the Vita and PS4 and haven't really played X-2 on either. And I'm really not a fan of its postgame either.

But at the same time, it's the only FF I won't have either loaded or preloaded on my switch. Decisions, decisions.

Prepurchased. Never quite finished FFX before (got to Bevelle on Vita), and never played X-2, so I'm quite looking forward to this. There's also Last Mission apparently, and having just gotten into roguelikes, that sounds neat as well.

Huge shame about the lack of PC QOL features, though. Fastforward especially is just... so crucial to making these long older games that much more fun to (re-)play.

In X's case it's mostly just Tidus' voice acting in certain parts and a couple of the outfits.. I like X-2 but it can't be denied there is some extremely cringe dialogue in there

Can you can choose the English dub and the original Japanese audio?
No. You can in the case of the import Switch release run the can with Japanese VO and Japanese text.​
Sorry, I don't understand this sentence.

And question to anyone. Does the Japanese release include the English dub? The eShop listing mentions the Japanese release has English but does not specify if it is a dub or just subtitles.

I had this on ps3 and quite enjoyed it. If i got it for theX, what differences could i expect? I dont think the ps3 version had that remastered soundtrack??
The PS3 version only had the remastered soundtrack, all versions since let you choose that or the original (which is honestly better)
