Now you can relive the tonal whiplash of Final Fantasy X and its sequel on more consoles than just Playstations. Blitzball is now a multiplat sport as Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is now out on Nintendo Switch and XBox One. Or, if you wait a little while, you can play them on something called a “SAD” that costs only 50 bucks cheaper yet has no disc drive or any method of selling, trading, or loaning your games with friends. Your choice!

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is available now on everything: Playstation 4, Nintendo Switxh, XBox One, PC, Playstation 3, and even Playstation 2!
