Each of the Final Fantasy games will receive visual improvements, with many of them being direct ports of remastered versions that have previously come to PlayStation platforms.
The nine Final Fantasy games coming to the Nintendo Switch are as follows:
- Final Fantasy VII (coming 2019)
- Final Fantasy IX (coming 2019)
- Final Fantasy X HD Remaster (coming 2019)
- Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster (coming 2019)
- Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (coming 2019)
- Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition (available tonight)
- Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles (coming 2019)
- Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Everybuddy (end of 2018/early 2019)
- World of Final Fantasy: Maxima (November 6th, 2018)
It’s worth noting that Crystal Chronicles, which first launched on the GameCube in 2004, and Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon, which came to the Wii in 2007, are the only two of these games to have ever appeared on a Nintendo system. The rest of these titles have otherwise released on PlayStation systems or mobile devices.
As well, while all the other titles are set to come out in the next several months, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop tonight. Released on Android and iOS in February, Pocket Edition is a mobile-friendly recreation of the original Final Fantasy XV experience from 2016.
