Final Fantasy VII Is Hitting Switch “Soon”

Final Fantasy VII’s Switch Port Is Coming

Back in September of last year, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VII (not the remake) will be coming to Switch and Xbox One. Now, a new commercial suggests that the release might be coming sooner than we think. Although the commercial also features Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it features a quick bit of Final Fantasy VII footage and a YouTube description that says the game is “coming soon.”

If the footage is any indicator, the version of the game is likely the old PC port that is already available on other systems. The other possibility is an emulation version of the PlayStation original, but this isn’t very likely.

Here’s a description of Final Fantasy VII from the PC port’s Steam page.

“In Midgar, a city controlled by the mega-conglomerate Shinra Inc., the No. 1 Mako Reactor has been blown up by a rebel group, AVALANCHE.”

“AVALANCHE was secretly formed to wage a rebellion against Shinra Inc., an organisation which is absorbing Mako energy, destroying the natural resources of the planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra’s elite combat force, SOLDIER, was involved with the bombing of the Mako Reactor.”

“Can Cloud and AVALANCHE protect the planet from the huge, formidable enemy, Shinra Inc.?”
