Square Enix has just made the announcement that we’ll soon be getting Final Fantasy Nintendo Switch ports for two (technically three) games. Final Fantasy 10, Final Fantasy 10-2, and Final Fantasy 12 will be available on the Nintendo Switch in April, on April 16 and April 30, respectively, after years without a Final Fantasy Nintendo game.
Final Fantasy games don’t normally make their way over onto Nintendo consoles, much less mainline Final Fantasy games. While the Final Fantasy 13 games and Final Fantasy 15 were released on Xbox consoles, they were the first in many years to come to a different console than a Playstation one, with the last main Final Fantasy game like that being Final Fantasy 5.
While other Final Fantasy games are being ported to other consoles than the Playstation 4 within the next few years, hopefully the Final Fantasy Nintendo Switch ports are only the first of many different ports that will be coming soon, which include games like Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 9, the latter of which has already been ported to the Playstation 4.
Fitting with games like Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 10/10-2 and Final Fantasy 12 both tell of epic journeys with the fate of the world at stake. 10 and 10-2 tell the story of an athlete named Tidus and the priestess Yuna, as they attempt to thwart an ancient beast known as Sin and, later, overcome ancient secrets.
Final Fantasy 12 tells the story of Princess Ashe, who finds herself caught up in a war between gods as she fights to liberate her homeland of Dalmasca from the oppressive Archadian Empire and also save the world.
Both of these games have recently been re-released on the Playstation 4 in the past few years, so if you already have them on the Playstation 4 but want to play them on the go, the Final Fantasy Nintendo Switch ports are sure to be the thing for you.
