Were you worried Final Fantasy VII on Nintendo Switch had been forgotten about?
Last year, Nintendo revealed that a bunch of classic Final Fantasy games – Final Fantasy VII,
Final Fantasy VIII not you, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X/X-2, and Final Fantasy XII – would be coming to Nintendo Switch.
Then it all went a little quiet. Nintendo Directs came and went, the seasons changed, and all of a sudden, it was 2019. The year these games were prophesied to release. And still nothing.
Almost as if Nintendo and Square were listening to our collective grumbles, they dropped the release announcements for Final Fantasy X/X-2 and Final Fantasy XII – the HD Remaster and Zodiac Age versions, respectively – but there was still no news on the one everybody really wants, Final Fantasy VII on Switch.
A couple of days ago, however, with precious little fanfare, Nintendo uploaded a ‘Nintendo Switch My Way’ video to their YouTube channel. In it, they show people playing the Switch in various ways – with the family in tabletop mode, or in handheld mode on a cramped plane – and the two games featured are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Final Fantasy VII.
So there you have it. It’s not a release date, and to be fair, we’re not even sure if he’s really playing or it’s just a mock-up, but it’s at least confirmation that Final Fantasy VII on Nintendo Switch hasn’t been forgotten about.
Next we’d like proof of life for Final Fantasy IX on Switch, please.
