Final Fantasy X|X-2 runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X
Early reports weren't true.
A few days ago, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remastered launched on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. However, there was some confusion regarding its Xbox One X Enhanced status. The box for the game stated that it ran at "4K" resolution, but the Microsoft Store listing didn't mention this at all. This dichotomy has happened in the past.
The Microsoft Store sometimes doesn't list games as Xbox One X Enhanced, even though they are. This has occurred with titles like Ashen, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and a handful of others. Usually, the box art reveals the resolution, but digital-only games aren't so lucky.
Square Enix provided us with access to Final Fantasy X|X-2 on Xbox One X, and we were able to confirm that it runs at native 4K resolution on the system. It's one of the crispest games available and looks absolutely stunning on a 4K display. It's definitely not 1080p or whatever resolution the base Xbox One renders at.
Luckily, our friends at VG Tech were also able to confirm this. The outlet said that it renders at native 4K in a video posted on YouTube. The team further confirmed its finding in the comments when a lot of users quoted an article which said it wasn't Xbox One X Enhanced.
If you were on the fence about buying Final Fantasy X|X-2 due to the lack of Xbox One X support, you can do so now. It's one of the clearest games on the system and it has to be experienced on a 4K screen.
Will you pick it up? Let us know.
