Although I appreciate all these games coming to the Switch, I do question if announcing them all in one go for one year is sensible? I’ve thought a long time about replaying VII fo a while so the Switch will make it perfect, but the thought of four or five 80 hour RPG’s in a short space of time when so much other great stuff is coming next year makes me wonder if I’ll lose interest in the rest.

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

Okay.
About FF XII The Zodiac Age, FF X/X-2 HD & World of Final Fantasy PS4 version, i noticed something about their Save Data on HDD.
1. FF XII = 41 GB
2. FF X/X-2 = 32 GB
3. World of Final Fantasy = 8.8 GB

I mean, What the Heck of their Save Data size !!
41 GB for FF XII , why did it take so many GB ? FF XII PS2 version file size was almost 4.7 GB on DVD. What makes so many GB for PS4 version ?

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

@MrGawain If that's all you have to be concerned about, then life ain't that bad huh?

Up-rezzed, nicer textures = larger file sizes.

There's no doubt that the Switch version of FFXII will be de-rezzed and compressed to fit a 16GB cartridge.

I really really hope, SquareEnix will NOT ruin the sounds volume quality when being played on Handheld mode. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary was an example of Very Quiet sounds on Handheld mode.

I guess many of these games are so old that they count as new for a lot of players. I haven't actually played any Final Fantasy games more recent than FFX, which is pretty much where I jumped off the series. A decent game, but it's also when Square Enix gave up any pretences that it was not simply channelling players down a single-track story. Kept waiting for that world map to arrive... Far prefer the preceding three PS1 games.

That said, FFXII is the entry I'll get on Switch, as it's the only one I've not played - apart from X-2, but I can't go back to that world! Also, FFXII is Ivalice, which is the best Square Enix setting (see Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story,).

Final Fantasy X was my first traditional JRPG I played through, and it's still one of my faves to this day.

For anyone new to the series, Final Fantasy X and XII are must owns, and if you can stomach the PSone graphics (even if they are touched up a bit from the PC port), Final Fantasy VII.

And even though its being ignored, Final Fantasy XV Pocket HD. Being more streamlined and story driven without the bland (it really was bland) open world makes it feel much more in line with traditional FF games. It's almost what FFXV would have been had they adhered to the traditional formula more. Im loving it, and I played most of the original! Especially for $18. Pocket change.

Also, World of Final Fantasy is fantastic, and more of a Pokemon styled (somewhat, anyways) FF game. Oh, Nintendo fans will love that one.

FF9 is definitely one of the best JRPG I ever played personally Not sure if I want to rebuy it though, I have bought it around 3 or 4 times by now and idk if I can muster the feeling of buying it again... T_T

If WoFF Maxima is giving tons of new story, gonna buy it though, I bought it at Vita and they aren't giving the DLC on Vita, only PC/PS4

@Krull

FF12 and FF15 are both openworld-ish.

FF12 is segmented zones but very open and after the early stages of the game you can explore quite a lot. FF15 is a bit moreso although has a lot of invisible walls.

@darkfenrir I loved the story of FF7 still rates as one of the best ever in my opinion but FF9 was to me the better game in every other way.

Anyone know why FF8 is a no show?? The only pre FF9 game I haven't played. I missed FF10-12 as I never had a PS2 so looking forward to them.

@bluemage1989 Could be multiple reasons. For one, FFVIII is extremely divisive. You'll find that a lot of people who either hate it or love it for multiple reasons, from the characters (some think Squall sucks, I think he's actually pretty good) to the combat (easily broken and abusable yet also a bit convoluted and grind-heavy compared to IV, VI, VII, and IX) to any other random reason, FFVIII tends to get a lot of mixed reactions from fans.

A less spiteful reason though would just be that Square Enix lost the source code (which happens with them a lot) and therefore would just need to rebuild it.

Speaking just for me:

  • I want 3/6 dangit. Come on Nintendo. Release the SNES FF games. Or would that be too virtual consolish, which we aren't allowed to have for some reason?
  • VII is a groundbreaking game. Assuming the price is right (it's $10 on the PS Store) everyone should get this, if only to see what the fuss is all about. If you only play until you reach the outworld, it's worth it.
  • VIII? It seems that Nintendo and I agree on its merits
  • IX? If somebody missed the PS1 FF games, this is the one to play all the way through first.
  • X/X-2? X-2 is top of my "embarrassing guilty pleasure" list.
  • XII? Ready to try it, assuming the price is right. More likely it'll come out at near/full price and I'll just pick up up for my PS3.
  • PS3??? Yeah, I know this is a Nintendo board. But I also love me some Sony Consoles.

The Wii U is still the world's best console. Buy one today!

I read somewhere that IX is the most "Final Fantasy" game of them all, if that makes sense.

I definitely recommend it as a starting point for those who haven't played any of the FF games. The music for VII, VIII, and IX is superb. I still listen to them on my iPod and Spotify.

The reason they're not doing FF8 right now is due to licensing issues with a song that's in the game.

I've only had Nintendo consoles, so I've never played any of these FF games, and I'm excited to play them all! Even so, I hope they do port over 1-6, FF4: The After Years, and even Mystic Quest. The SNES FF games are my top favorite RPGs!

@EvilLucario I think the PSone Final Fantasy games in general were quite divisive I've heard plenty of hate and love for FF8 but the same goes for FF7 and FF9 (and FF10... and FF13... wait FF15 also actually maybe the whole series is divisive lols) but yeah maybe FF8 is the most divisive of all but I would have thought even being divisive if they could they would have released just to have the full line up so yeah I think your source code idea sounds (sadly) possible.

Hmmm. I don't really want to go back to the old FF games, but it is good for those who want them. For me, I'm looking forward to new games in the future. As much as I remember playing 8 and 10, I also remember giving up on them.

@bluemage1989 VII and IX were pretty universally loved. VII nowadays gets a bit of hype backlash effect the same way BotW and other popular games get it, but it didn't change the fact that VII REALLY brought JRPGs into the mainstream.

@EvilLucario I don't think they lost the source code, they ported it to PC after all. It just needs to be remastered still, unlike the others.
