Final Fantasy X|X-2 runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X

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.

Thanks @Jcroa25 for the tip!

  • it's a ps2 game, it had better run at 4k on an xbone X
  • This is the remaster, so it features better textures and much more. It doesn’t look like a PS2 game anymore.
  • Does that mean it will run at 4K on the PS4 Pro as well?
  • I think it’s already available on PS4 Pro, has been for months, but doesn’t feature PS4 Pro support.
  • What a shame.
  • That cemented my decision to buy this for Xbox...The Switch was tempting but the native 4K Resolution will be something that I desire more than portable play.
