Final Fantasy Games Coming to Nintendo Switch

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

Some high-definition versions of classic "Final Fantasy" titles are coming to Nintendo Switch next year, Nintendo revealed during a Direct on Thursday. Publisher Square Enix and Nintendo announced the news through Twitter.

Sadly, though, they're only capable of playing NES titles - so don't expect to go sword-slashing with them in current-gen releases like Breath of the Wild. Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon, World of Final Fantasy, and Crystal Chronicles will also release on the PS4.

Alongside the previously announced Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles remaster, we're also getting the remastered versions of X, X2 and XII, an enhanced version of World of Final Fantasy subtitled Maxima, as well as VII and IX in their semi-original forms.

Final Fantasy 15: Pocket Edition is kicking off this string of Final Fantasy releases for the Switch, and it is available now.

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

In a bombshell of an announcement, a whole slew of Final Fantasy games will be heading to the Switch.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima, a "leveled-up" version of the World of Final Fantasy game, will launch for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam on November 6.

Of course, that's just speculation at this time.
