Even though Nintendo and Square-Enix have been on good business terms for a while now, having the post-FFVI games on a Nintendo platform is awesome. It feels like coming home. You know? It feels right.

Really tempted to pick up X/X-2 HD. X, along with the first Kingdom Hearts, were the first games to get me into JRPGs, but it's been years since I last played it, so it'll be great to play it again (also never played X-2, which I want to do as well).

May get XII as well. I played it on PS2 but dropped it after getting to a segment in a mine where you have to escape from some lizard(?) looking villain, but I always died before escaping.

I honestly thought we were never getting mainline Final Fantasy on Nintendo outside of the original 6. VII came out 21 years ago. TWENTY ONE. Square Enix has been making games for Nintendo systems again for FIFTEEN years. So I just assumed it was never happening for...whatever reason.

But now we basically get all the good ones! Awesome! Now for various reasons (mostly my refusal to buy games I've already experienced), I personally would only get XII most likely, but this is still unbelievably awesome. I grew up in the N64/PS1 era, so this is so cool to me.

@Anti-Matter I'm surprised you still even keep the PS4 in the house. Thought you would've either sold it or locked it in a dungeon by now.

Is IX the best one of these for someone new to FF to start with? The closest thing I've played to any of these is Bravely Default.

@ReaderRagfish
After i heard the announcement of FF XII The Zodiac Age, FF X/X-2 HD, World of Final Fantasy Maxima on Nintendo Switch, now it just ONLY 3 PS4 games that still i haven't Eliminated yet :
1. The Sims 4
2. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD
3. Portal Knights: Gold Throne Edition

Just matter of time. Once the two games announced on Switch (The Sims 4 & Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD), that means Sayonara PS4, SOLD them All.

Kingdom Hearts may never come to Switch, although I wouldn't object if it did. The series was always a Sony exclusive.

@Tyranexx

Yep 9 is the best to start with definitely. 10 is also a good starting point.

9 is like a much larger and better version of Bravely Default. The only thing Bravely Default does better is the battle system.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

I feel like it's cool nowadays to say that VII is overrated but it's honestly still my favorite in the series.

@Tyranexx FF IX is basically the Wind Waker of the series. It was generally well received initially despite its bumps, but was then forgotten about for years until recently when tons of hipsters started going around saying it's the best one. Although unlike FF IX (which I'm not a huge fan of), I liked Wind Waker.

I'd probably recommend VI as a starting point. And if not VI, then VII.

Remember when FF X/X-2 HD & World of Final Fantasy were still labelled "Only On Playstation" on the Top cover of PS4 ?
No More Playstation Exclusive right now.
SquareEnix will port their games on Nintendo Switch.
You know, backstabbing Sony was felt really great for me.
I believe SquareEnix will bring their games on Xbox1 as well.

This is one of the most exciting days in recent memory for me.

I've been saying I wanted Final Fantasy on switch since the day the system launched. And I especially wanted to see X and XII. We just got both of those games and so much more.

Btw, the Final Fantasy XV Pocket HD is excellent! The game looks so much better than what I was expecting because of the goofy art style. But in motion for actual gameplay it looks really good. And all the original voice acting and sound effects are still there which really gives it a feeling of higher quality than the condensed aesthetics lend credence to.

It's very simple. Octopath Traveler sold a bajilion units on Switch on a relatively low development cost, and Square Enix came to Nintendo running.

I'll probably try the majority of the main numbered entries that are being ported since my research seems to indicate that these entries are generally well-regarded? I'm gonna be swamped with RPGs again it seems.

Thanks to everyone who chimed in!

@Anti-Matter I am sorry but this is site for gamers that actually like games no matter the console. It is mainly for Nintendo but you have to at least tolerate the others.
This thread is for FF on Nintendo console and you just repeat your crap over and over how you hate some other console or company.

This is NOT ok.

Stop pushing your personal crap where it doea NOT belong.

@Anti-Matter you must backstab a lot of people in life. Such evil

Sorta bummed VIII is not coming (at least for now). The summon cutscenes are epic.

Actually, i DIDN'T even want to buy PS4 last year.
But FF XII The Zodiac Age PS4 has Silenced me to buy the PS4 version at that time.
But now, FF XII The Zodiac Age will be on Nintendo Switch, so i don't need the PS4 version anymore.
I can Sold my PS4 version to buy the Switch version.
The reason i backstabbing Sony because......
Since PS3 era, Sony has DISAPPOINTED me A Lot. That was my personal issue.
Time for changes, back to Nintendo side.

You can disagree with my decision, but i have to do it because the reason i bought PS4 is NOT because i like the machine, but i have NO Choice to play FF X/X-2 HD, FF XII The Zodiac Age, World of Final Fantasy on Nintendo machine on that time. Luckily, i haven't played so long for those games (PS4 version) so i don't mind to Restart again on Switch version.

Now, i have a chance, so i will always choose Nintendo Switch version whenever there are new games in the future. Please understand my motivation.
