Tons of Final Fantasy Games Coming to Switch (But Not the Best One... Sad)

Everyone but Squall fans will be happy in 2019.

Square Enix is releasing a ton of Final Fantasy games for Nintendo Switch. But not the actual best one. You know which one I'm talking about.

A whole mess of Final Fantasy games were confirmed for Switch during today's Nintendo Direct. Here's a list:

[Update: Microsoft announced that a bunch of these games are also coming to Xbox One. Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, and XII are all coming to Xbox for the first time, as well as Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition and World of Final Fantasy].

Most of these are fine games (Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon is... well... yeah). But there's a distinct lack of Final Fantasy VIII on this list! Will we ever get to sit around and draw spells on the road? (Yes, yes, I know Final Fantasy VIII is available on the Vita).

This amazing opening regrettably won't be on Switch anytime soon.

In all seriousness, Final Fantasy VIII is an underrated entry in the series, and probably deserves to be revisited. But at this point even Final Fantasy IX is overshadowing it. I suppose we'll never get to experience the joys of Time Kompression again. But hey, at least we're getting Final Fantasy XII on Switch. That's pretty neat.

Look for the majority of these games on Switch in 2019. And keep your fingers crossed for all the NES and SNES versions. We'll get all the Final Fantasy games on Switch yet. Except for Final Fantasy VIII. Probably.
