Classic Final Fantasy PlayStation Games Are Coming To Switch And Xbox One

Decades after Square split from Nintendo to go to PlayStation, the classic Final Fantasy games of that era are heading to the Switch. Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, and XII are all coming to Switch in 2019.

Update, 7:12 PM Eastern: Square Enix has now said that several of these games are also on their way to Xbox One, including VII, IX, X and X-2, and XII.

Final Fantasy XII will be the recent Zodiac Age remaster, and X and X-2 will be the HD remastered versions as well. I assume that VII and IX will be based on the improved PC versions, but that wasn’t stated.

In addition, Square Enix also said that Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon, the 2007 Wii game, will also come to Switch. 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).

These join previously-announced projects Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition and the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles HD remaster.

That’s a lot of Final Fantasy, but I know what you’re thinking: Where’s VIII? Additionally, what about all of those Final Fantasy games that appeared on Nintendo hardware? I don’t know either.


  • Just add 6 & 8 now & i’ll be happy for the next 5 years I reckon?

    Wonder if Sony are looking at the Switch (& if rumours are to be believed then they are) with envious eyes thinking back to the Vita & what might have been – my switch is certainly taking the place of my vita now with added bonus of tons of indies AND mainstream Nintendo titles.

    • Meant to add something I wrote in another thread – curious about cost of these; The mobile versions were preeeetty expensive at launch & the switch digital stuff has a little habit of being pricey – considering most people own these elsewhere & they’re ao reasonable on PC etc I hope we don’t have our pants pulled down over the price.

  • Barely touch anything other than my switch these days. Granted most of that is playing hollow knight but with everything on the horizon (except ff8) I’m a happy camper.
