    The first Final Fantasy for the PlayStation 2

    Embark on an epic journey with Tidus, the young star of a futuristic underwater sport called “blitzball.” A mysterious force, known only as Sin, suddenly thrusts him into the world of Spira. Along his journey he meets Yuna, a determined young woman who learns the ancient art of summoning and controlling aeons--powerful spirits. With the help of friends, Tidus and Yuna travel across uncharted lands in their ultimate quest to defeat Sin.

    Experience breakthrough innovations and artistry with the first Final Fantasy to utilize features like voiceovers, seamless 3D environments, and life-like facial expressions in real time. Discover why Final Fantasy X has been one of the most highly anticipated titles for the PlayStation 2.

    With the caliber of artistic, creative and developmental talents involved in Square Soft's biggest epic yet, Final Fantasy X will set new standards for games released for the PlayStation 2, reminiscent of the technological feats Final Fantasy VII accomplished on the original PlayStation in 1997.

    In addition to the game's voiceover dialogue (a Final Fantasy first), Final Fantasy X offers fully 3D environments that seamlessly integrate real-time movement with battles, allowing players to walk around and engage in battles on the same field map screen. Life-like motion-captured characters designed by Tetsuya Nomura (Final Fantasy VII & VIII, Parasite Eve) bring realism to the screen. As seen in previous Final Fantasy titles, players will be able to enjoy new mini-games, such as mastering the sport of blitzball and the Al Bhed language, plus engage in an all-new "Sphere Grid" battle system.
