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.
Aside from Nintendo's notable omission of Final FantasyVIII 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.
