Final Fantasy X-2 is a direct sequel to the popular Final Fantasy X, and takes place two years after the events of the previous game. Despite offering FFX fans more of the same, FFX-2 was less successful. It is the first Final Fantasy game to be a direct sequel, however Final Fantasy VII has also had several sequels since. The game features Yuna and Rikku from the previous game, and Paine, a new character. It takes place shortly after FFX, when most of the characters have gone their separate ways. The game uses a modified version of the job system from Final Fantasy III with a skill growth system similar to Final Fantasy VIII's.
Although the game was not very successful when first released for Playstation 2, in 2014 Square Enix re-released a remastered version for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita. It is available as a bundle package with Final Fantasy X.

Sin, a monstrous beast, was summoned to put a stop to the fighting, however was now their punishment for using machina during these Great Wars. To temporarily bring a Calm to the lands, summoners and their guardians would set out on pilgrimages in search for Fayth to pray to for help them bring Sin down. In the end, sacrificing their lives to defeat the mighty monster. Yuna was such a summoner, however she and her guardians defied the teachings that were set in place, taking another approach.
