It’s a Final Fantasy Party, and Every Buddy is Invited

Final Fantasy 15: Pocket Edition is kicking off this string of Final Fantasy releases for the Switch, and it is available now. I don't need another copy of Final Fantasy X, but I'm definitely going to be picking it (and the others) up when they launch next year! This is a remaster of the GameCube title and includes new areas and online multiplayer. World of Final Fantasy Maxima will arive on November 6th. New feature called avatar change has been added, which allows you change your character to another character from the series.

Aside from Nintendo's notable omission of Final Fantasy VIII from that robust lineup, the reveal pretty much brings Nintendo up to date on all the mainline Final Fantasy games up through Final Fantasy XIII, which released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009 and hasn't been ported (so far) to any current-gen console.

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-. Final Fantasy VII I specifically feel guilty for having never played and I'm excited to hopefully have time to dig into it next year on my Switch. They will be most likely be the upgraded versions, which means fans have somewhat sharper graphics to look forward to, as well as a variety of cheat codes that will make some significant quality of life improvements for those who want to experience the games without some of the old-school gameplay mechanics at work.

In fact, it's the first time any numbered Final Fantasy has been on a Nintendo home console since Final Fantasy VI on the SNES in 1994.
