Both Square Enix and Nintendo underestimated Octopath Traveler, and it went on to sell over 1 million units worldwide. This, of course, means Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD (which is available right now!), but some other titles that I've not even heard of.

This time the Nintendo Direct was well worth stopping up for, and amongst all of the game announcements and trailers it seems that Square Enix have chose to heap their attention on the diminutive system next year. It will be joined by the spinoff games World of Final Fantasy: Maxima on November 8 and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Everybuddy! this winter.

Apple's $29 iPhone battery replacements will cost $69 after December
This has led to the iPhone XR being variously described as "cheap", " entry-level ", or the " budget " iPhone for this year. If you want a 2018 iPhone (and not the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone 7), you can keep a little more money in the bank.

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. I for one am beyond relieve to see Square Enix finally supporting Xbox with their re-releases and remasters, and this certainly makes it likely the developmentally-challenged FF7 remake will come our way as well. X-2 HD Remaster, and Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age are all scheduled to release in 2019.

Final Fantasy 7 is out now for PC, PS1, PS4, iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch. The game supports two-player co-op. This new version includes more Champions (classic Final Fantasy characters) and Mirages (monsters), and a new feature called Avatar Change that allows you to actually play as some of those Champions, rather than just summon them.
