The direct sequel to Final Fantasy X (Final Fantasy X-2) was re-released on the Nintendo Switch this week. To say it has been a game that has generated some substantial debate over the years would be an understatement. It's a complete departure from its predecessor on just about every level. Overall, it's the more lighthearted, with some moments of seriousness often offset by the cheerful realisation that in this game, Yuna and her friends have become close to AKB-48 than religious leaders. It also has a combat system that more closely resembles Final Fantasy XIII than Final Fantasy X's turn based, strategic battles, and that has always been a controversial approach to combat by Square Enix.
