Square Enix took a chance on the Nintendo Switch by releasing a classic-style JRPG called Octopath Traveler as an exclusive for the console. Now that Square Enix knows there is an audience for its games on Nintendo's handheld/home console hybrid, it's announced that Final Fantasy 7 and a host of other Final Fantasy games are coming to the Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
Besides all of this remaster love, we're also getting one new game in the slightly disappointing shape of Chocobo Mystery Dungeon, though really there's very little to complain about, apart from perhaps where Final Fantasy XIV is!
That was far from the only Final Fantasy related annoucement though, even accepting that news of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD had already leaked out. You might as well start calling your Switch "the Final Fantasy machine".
But one of the biggest surprises was the annoucement that Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age are coming to Switch sometime next year. Just one buddy at a time, though.
In a bombshell of an announcement, a whole slew of Final Fantasy games will be heading to the Switch. World of Final Fantasy originally launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in October 2016, and for PC in November 2017.
