I've never had the chance to play some of these later FF games after they left Nintendo for Sony long ago.  I know some of the newer FFs might not be as good as older games, but I'd be willing to give some of them a shot.

Square Enix has revealed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition - a remake of the classic GameCube title - is headed to Nintendo Switch.


Released back in 2004, Crystal Chronicles tasks players with traveling the world in search of 'myrrh' which is used to fuel crystals protecting the world's settlements from the poisonous Miasma. Starting in their home village, the protagonists go on a journey to find rare trees which produce this fuel, exploring dungeons along the way.


This remaster is slated to be released in 2019.  There is no other information other than this game will be more gorgeous than ever than back in the GameCube days.  It will release on Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.  No other platforms are targeted for release currently.

Square-Enix Announces Final Fantasy XV...Pocket Edition HD (Multiplatform incl. Switch)

07 September 2018 - 06:44 AM



Square Enix has revealed Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD will arrive "soon" on the Nintendo Switch. The free-to-start title was originally released earlier this year on Android and iOS devices and is said to be an abridged version of Final Fantasy XV which first arrived in 2016. Here's the PR courtesy of Gematsu:

Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, fans and newcomers alike can follow the journey of crown prince Noctis and his brothers in arms, Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus, with fully voiced key event scenes and faithfully recreated battles.

All of the treasured moments from Final Fantasy XV, like driving the Regalia across breath-taking landscapes, camping, chocobo riding and more, can be experienced in a whole new way with the game’s creatively reimagined art style and in HD resolution for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 system versions.

This announcement follows rumours earlier this week when the mobile game icon appeared on the PlayStation Store. Since then, it's now been confirmed this version of the game will cost £24.99 / $29.99 and is 40% off this price in the first week. 

It's also worth noting how last September, FFXV Director Hajime Tabata teased the full Final Fantasy experience could eventually show up on Switch. Not long after he made these comments, the Pocket Edition of the game was unveiled.
