Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2 HD, Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Get Release Dates for the Switch

The Switch's Final Fantasy games conga line continues.

Square Enix announced the release dates for both the Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age for the Nintendo Switch. Luckily for fans, both games will be out this April.

Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2 HD, a joint package that features both RPGs, will be out on April 16, while Final Fantasy 12 HD is releasing a couple weeks afterwards on April 30. The news was shared via Nintendo of America's Twitter page along with a brand-new Final Fantasy 12 poster drawn by Akihiko Yoshida.

Both Final Fantasy 10, 10-2, and 12 were announced for the Nintendo Switch back in a Nintendo Direct last September. It was also announced then that Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition HD, 7, 9, World of Final Fantasy Maxima, and Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered would all be coming to the Switch as well. Since then, Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition HD released in September 2018, while World of Final Fantasy Maxima launched in November 2018 for Switch.

If you're new to the Final Fantasy series, the Switch is now a great console to start your adventure with. We recommended that newcomers to the series should start with Final Fantasy 10. And with a whole bunch of other Final Fantasy games coming to the console, it's as good a place to start as any. That is, until we finally get the Final Fantasy 7 remake on PS4 (or PS5 at this point).

For more help in starting your own Final Fantasy journey, we ran down the entire list of Final Fantasy games in the series and picked the best versions of each Final Fantasy game to play. The list includes both FF10 and 10-2 HD, as well as FF12: The Zodiac Age by the way.
