Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Heads to Nintendo Switch in 2019

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Heads to Nintendo Switch in 2019

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

In a bombshell of an announcement, a whole slew of Final Fantasy games will be heading to the Switch. Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, dropped the news on the Xbox Wire website and has announced that a collection of Final Fantasy titles will be coming to the Xbox One over the coming few months.

What is somewhat unclear at this point is if the versions of Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 9 that are releasing for the Switch are the original versions or the upgraded editions. The game supports two-player co-op. PS1 landmarks Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy IX, as well as PS2-era classics Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 - both in their revamped form thanks to a 2013 HD remaster - all will land on the Switch sometime next year.

Will my old iPhone X case fit the new iPhone XS?
Throughout 2018, Apple has been offering out-of-warranty battery replacements at a discount for some iPhone models. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

In the meantime, it's also unclear why Final Fantasy 8 wasn't included in the lineup.

Square Enix are clearly keen to get as many Final Fantasy games as possible onto Switch, and that's in addition to the recent Octopath Traveler and the upcoming remaster The World Ends With You -Final Remix-. Just one buddy at a time, though. 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).
