Final Fantasy Is Being Well Represented On Switch

Final Fantasy 7 9 X X-2 XII Switch Xbox One

This time the Nintendo Direct was well worth stopping up for, and amongst all of the game announcements and trailers it seems that Square Enix have made a decision to heap their attention on the diminutive system next year. Unbeknownst to Noctis, however, the journey ahead is fraught with perils...

When SquareEnix's Hajime Tabata joked that Final Fantasy XV might come to Nintendo's hybrid portable, fans bought into the hype.

Watch the launch trailer below. It will be joined by the spinoff games World of Final Fantasy: Maxima on November 8 and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Everybuddy! this winter. After all, the original NES is the place where Final Fantasy began, and Nintendo's subsequent consoles remained the home base for publisher SquareSoft (now Square Enix) until the franchise jumped ship in favor of the PS1 with the release of FFVII - widely regarded, still, as one of the most influential RPGs of all time.

The 35-minute presentation was bookended by two major new announcements for next year: Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing, and you can read about them and all the other reveals here.

"Final Fantasy VII", "Final Fantasy IX", and "Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster" are all on their way, along with the recently released "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age". And so is World of Final Fantasy, as a new version called World of Final Fantasy Maxima (also coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One). The HD version of the iOS and Android game launched for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last week. Additionally, what about all of those Final Fantasy games that appeared on Nintendo hardware?
