Final Fantasy X And XII Release Dates Announced For Nintendo Switch And Xbox One
The classic RPGs arrive this April.
Square Enix is bringing a host of classic Final Fantasy games to new consoles this year, including Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age and Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster. The publisher has now announced when the two titles will hit Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, and they're both set to arrive in April.
First, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster will release on April 16. This set contains remastered versions of both Final Fantasy X and its sequel, Final Fantasy X-2, which have been touched up with high definition visuals, some additional content, and other improvements. In our original Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD review, we called the collection "a meticulous refurbishment" and awarded it an 8/10.
Shortly after the X / X-2 HD Remaster arrives, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will come to both Switch and Xbox One on April 30. This version of the classic PS2 RPG was first released on PS4 in 2017, with a Steam port following in 2018. It likewise features HD visuals and a host of gameplay improvements, including a revamped job system and the ability to increase the game's speed.
Beyond that, a number of other Final Fantasy games are in the pipeline for Switch and Xbox One, including Final Fantasy VII and IX. The GameCube spin-off Final Fantasy: The Crystal Chronicles is also being released this year for Switch and PS4, although a release date has not yet been announced.
In other Final Fantasy news, Square Enix recently released the first part of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood's big 4.5 patch, which added a new dungeon, story quests, and other content that sets the stage for the upcoming Shadowbringers expansion. The publisher also shared a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV's next DLC, Episode Ardyn, which is slated to launch this March.
