Vintage Final Fantasy Poster Encore #2: FFX-2
Now with garment grids!
Final Fantasy X-2 is an interesting title: It has achieved many firsts in the series including: It’s the first official sequel in the series (since the other roman numerals are contained storylines); It’s the first game without music composed mainly by Nobuo Uematsu; It’s the first game limited to a three-character party; It’s the first game to have a job-class-meets-sphere-grid leveling system, and of course, it’s headed by three fiesty heroines known collectively as the Gullwings. Oh, did I mention that the characters can now jump?
The title picks up a little bit after X left off, only this time Tidus is nowhere to be found. Main ladies Yuna, Rikku, and Paine travel the lands of X in efforts to keep the peace between three factions - The Youth League, New Yevon, and the Machine Faction before one of them unearths and activates a deadly dormant weapon simply known as “Vegnagun” in order to obliterate the other two parties for full control of Spira. All of this begins with a memorable j-pop opening of Yuna dressed in a songstress outfit singing Koda Kumi’s “Real Emotion”. Love it or hate it, you gotta admit that it’s catchy.
Despite its departure from the traditional Final Fantasy formula, it is still a beloved game among many fans of its predecessor and this game itself for its originality.
