This is not a drill. We repeat: this is not a drill. There is currently money off Final Fantasy remasters on the Nintendo Switch.
In the UK, we have some lovely idioms for things that are scare, or rare, to the point of being impossible to find. As rare as hen’s teeth. (Hens don’t have teeth, you see.) As rare as rocking horse excrement. (Nor do rocking horses defecate. Though I cleaned that one up a bit from the word we tend to use, to be fair.)
As rare as money off Final Fantasy games on the Nintendo Switch.
Alright, that third one’s not a real British idiom, but it is just as rare as the other two. Which is what makes this link, on the Nintendo eShop, so tantalising:
That’s exciting. The fact it’s so rare is enough to send little tingles down your spine and make all the hairs on your arms stand on end. The fact that Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy X/X-2 are priced at an eye-watering £45 makes the prospect of a sale more exciting still. (We’re not objecting to games being priced properly. We want developers and publishers to be well-compensated. But for decades-old video games you probably own three times over, £45 feels a bit steep. The 15 quid for Final Fantasies seven-through-nine feels more reasonable.)
Currently, the following Final Fantasy games are on sale on the Nintendo Switch:
- Final Fantasy VII
- Final Fantasy IX
- Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age
- Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Remaster
- Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition
- Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy
- World of Final Fantasy Maxima
As is becoming something of a habit for Final Fantasy news, Final Fantasy VIII isn’t included. First, the eighth instalment took far longer to get a re-release at all. Now, it’s not included in the big Nintendo Switch Final Fantasy sale.
That’s fair enough, we suppose. It did only release a few weeks ago. But if it were at a discount, people would be all over it.
Time to buy some Final Fantasy games for the umpteenth time, but you’ll have to be quick: the current Nintendo Switch sale ends on October 13, 2019.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
