Final Fantasy 9 Out Today On Switch, Final Fantasy 7 Coming Next Month


Back in September, Square Enix announced it will bring a slate of modern-era Final Fantasy games to Nintendo Switch (as well as Xbox One) in 2019, including the classic PS One entries Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy IX. The former was recently featured in a new Switch commercial that teased it would hit the console “soon,” and now we know exactly when.

During the latest Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed that Final Fantasy VII is launching for Switch next month, on March 26. The spin-off Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy is also set to arrive next month, on March 20, but fans won’t have to wait that long to play Final Fantasy IX; that game will be available in the Switch Eshop later today, February 13.

Beyond those titles, Square Enix is also bringing Final Fantasy X, X-2, and XII: The Zodiac Age to both Switch and Xbox One this year. The X and X-2 HD Remaster collection will arrive on April 16, with Final Fantasy XII following several weeks later, on April 30. The publisher has also previously announced a PS4 and Switch port of Final Fantasy: The Crystal Chronicles, but no release date has been confirmed yet.

That wasn’t the only Square Enix news to come out of the latest Nintendo Direct. We also learned that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition will launch for Switch this fall, while the Minecraft-like spin-off Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming on July 12.
