Nintendo just announced that a slew of Final Fantasy classics from Square Enix are coming to the Switch next year. The announcement was followed by a statement from Square Enix revealing that Xbox One will also be in getting in on the action.
Next year, Switch gamers will be able to play Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2 and XII, Final Fantasy Chocobo’s Dungeon and World of Final Fantasy (which was renamed World of Final Fantasy Maxima and is also hitting Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC). All of this is in addition to the previously-announced Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles HD remaster and Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.
Xbox gamers will get to play Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, XII, and World of Final Fantasy Maxima.
Although none of the 16-bit titles have been announced, it wouldn’t be surprising if they made their way into Nintendo Switch’s online service as retro titles.
As of now, the classic ports have no specific release date. The only thing for certain is that the titles will be released at some point in 2019. The only game notably missing is Final Fantasy VIII, which is the only series installment between 7 and 10 that has not been ported to mobile devices.
