The Nintendo Switch just became a Final Fantasy machine

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

When SquareEnix's Hajime Tabata joked that Final Fantasy XV might come to Nintendo's hybrid portable, fans bought into the hype. Early next year, past mainline entries will begin coming in.

Releasing on the Switch are World of Final Fantasy Maxima, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X/X2 Remastered, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD, and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon.

Six titles were under the spotlight in the news with one of those already being available as FINAL FANTASY XV POCKET EDITION HD released for the Xbox One last week.

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 same games are also coming to Xbox One, after also never being on a Microsoft console before.

Square Enix took a chance on the Nintendo Switch by releasing a classic-style JRPG called Octopath Traveler as an exclusive for the console.

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 2019, meanwhile, will be the year when some older Final Fantasy games will be coming to the system.

Almost a full decade worth of Final Fantasy games will soon be coming to the Nintendo Switch, including fan favorite Final Fantasy 9.
