What Is Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm?

This is our story! Now let's see this thing through together!
Final Fantasy X Eternal Calm

Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm is a 15-minute cutscene that serves as a narrative link between Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. It takes place two years after Final Fantasy X and provides additional details and context to the events that took place at the beginning of Final Fantasy X-2, including why Rikku and Yuna set out to find Tidus.

Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm, sometimes referred to as Another Story, reunites you with a few familiar characters from Final Fantasy X, and also introduces new faces to the mix. Here’s everyone who plays a role:

  • Yuna
  • Wakka
  • Rikku
  • Tasgio
  • Yaibal
  • Tidus*
  • Shuyin*

*Tidus is seen in the Bevelle prison during the sphere recording scene in the Japanese version of Eternal Calm. This was later changed for the English version, with Shuyin appearing behind bars.

Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm was originally released as a bonus feature, coming bundled with the Japanese release of Final Fantasy X International and Unlimited Saga, and was also made available to English audiences through the now-defunct Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine
