Nintendo Direct: Final Fantasy and NES classics coming to Switch, kupo!

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

Nintendo and Square Enix have announced Final Fantasy VII Switch alongside various other Final Fantasy games, including Final Fantasy FFIX, FFX/X2 and FF V.

As for the rest of the event, Nintendo covered plenty more ground, most of which touched on previous announcements.

Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is available now.

The list of Final Fantasy games coming to the Nintendo Switch includes Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 9, Final Fantasy 10, Final Fantasy 10-2, and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age.

Interesting to note is that Final Fantasy XVIII is missing from this list, and why wonder why Square Enix has made a decision to skip this Switch port.

These are remasters of the original versions - so not the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII - but it will be the first time any of them have been on a Nintendo console.

According to the Japanese official website of the game, those who own World of Final Fantasy on PS4 and PC via Steam will get to upgrade to Maxima for 2,400 yen plus tax. The 2018 versions are designed specifically to go with all those NES games you'll be able to play when Switch Online debuts, and they'll even slot into the Switch's existing Joy-Con sockets when not in use. Just one buddy at a time, though.

2019 will see the arrival of eight - yes EIGHT - Final Fantasy games, which is probably a billion-ty hours of gameplay right there.
