Final Fantasy Is Coming To Nintendo Switch In A Major Way

Final Fantasy Is Coming To Nintendo Switch In A Major Way

During Thursday's Nintendo Direct stream, Nintendo and Square Enix announced that a total of eight Final Fantasy games would be coming to Nintendo Switch. Unbeknownst to Noctis, however, the journey ahead is fraught with perils...

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD is out now.

Watch the launch trailer below. 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. 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. X-2 Remaster, and Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age will get ports for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in 2019.

China welcomes U.S. invitation for new round of trade talks
The largest American business groups in China issued a plea to President Trump on Thursday: Please stop with the tariffs. Businesses are ratcheting up lobbying against tariffs that the Trump administration has imposed, or is considering.

In addition to all the throwback gaming goodness, Nintendo also unveiled some throwback hardware: an updated, wireless version of the iconic old-school NES controllers.

The 35-minute presentation was bookended by two major new announcements for next year: Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing, and you can read about them and all the other reveals here. World of Final Fantasy originally launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in October 2016, and for PC in November 2017.
