  • ‘Final Fantasy VII,’ ‘IX,’ And ‘X’ Coming To Nintendo Switch In 2019

This not only includes the legendary Final Fantasy VII but IX, XII and X/X2 HD. Sorry FF8 fans, you're weird and everyone knows it. The mainline releases will be sprinkled throughout 2019, and we'll update when more info is available on those release dates.

Soon after this reveal during the Direct, it was announced that in addition to coming to Switch, all of those same aforementioned titles other than Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon and Crystal Chronicles Remastered will also be arriving on Xbox One. Publisher Square Enix and Nintendo announced the news through Twitter. The upgraded version adds two new Champions with Noctis from Final Fantasy XV, Zack Fair from Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Y'shtola from Final Fantasy XIV, Serah from Final Fantasy XIII-2, Cecil from Final Fantasy IV, and Firion from Final Fantasy II. The game will have a new "avatar change" feature that allows the player to become classic Final Fantasy characters.

Vaan, meet Mario: of all the highlights and reveals from Nintendo's much-anticipated, earthquake-delayed Nintendo Direct event Thursday, none had more of a mic-drop feel than the surprising news that nearly all the mainline Final Fantasy games from the PlayStation's golden era will soon be making their home on the Nintendo Switch.

On a personal note, I've never played most of these games so their arrival on other platforms makes me really happy.
