Nintendo fans lost their minds when it was announced that a number of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy games would be coming to the Switch. While the likes of Final Fantasy XV might be too much for the system, fans were very happy when classic titles like Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy IX were announced for the system, along with PS2 gems like Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
Though a release date for the older games hasn’t been announced yet, fans will be happy to know that Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will hit the system this April. The collection of X and X-2 will be out earlier on April 16 while the underrated Final Fantasy XII will come out on April 30.
It’s worth noting that these games are also coming to the Xbox One on that date but the emphasis on Switch came when the titles were showcased as part of a Nintendo Direct. Still, no word on that HD remaster of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles so here’s hoping the time and attention being put into that game is worth it.
Some JRPG fans might roll their eyes since this is the third or fourth time the Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster is being ported to a new system. It first came out on the PS3, then made its way to the PS4 and PS Vita soon after. Then again, those fans don’t have to buy it again and making sure these titles are readily available for everyone isn’t a bad thing.
