Final Fantasy X-2 HD for PC, PS4 and etc. is an improved version of the direct sequel to the tenth installment of Final Fantasy that was released in 2001. Final Fantasy X-2 was released in 2003 on PlayStation 2 and it was the first numerated sequel to an installment in the series. The game was developed by a Japanese studio – Square (currently known as Square Enix).
The work on the title started after the debut of Final Fantasy X. It was supervised by Motomu Toriyama who also directed Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII. When planning the sequel, developers decided to greatly change the style and the tune of the story of the game in comparison to what once surprised and angered many fans. The HD version of the game was created by a developer team inside Square Enix. It is worth adding that the port contains additional features that were previously available only in special edition of the original game released in Japan.
The story of the title starts two years after the finale of Final Fantasy X. The main protagonists are Yuna and Riku from the previous game and a completely new female character named Pain. The three girls are adventurers who get themselves in the middle of a growing conflict between factions and ideologies that appeared in the world of Spira after Sin was destroyed.
During the game player travels through a fully three-dimensional world and observe the action from third-person perspective. In difference to the previous game, this time player has no control over the party members and during the whole game the team consists of three female characters. During the battles their costumes can be changed. Each costume has different properties that impact available attacks, special abilities and spells. The costumes are obtained and improved during the game.
