8 Comments

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.

playing VII, IX, X/X2, and 12 on the ps4 really left me wanting to play VIII very badly. I am hoping this happens on any system. I mean sure, I can dust off the psx and play it. But I would really like to on a current gen console.

Glad to see all the consoles getting FF love

Eh...just give me the release date of IX, and I'll be a happy guy.

Nothing against X or XII. They're are not bad, but...they are not my favorite...

It's good to see FFXII get another chance. It may not be the greatest FF but it's much much better than any other in the last ~12 or so years!

I would love if they did a rerelease of FF8, like they did with 7 and 9. I really liked the gameplay
