Those of you with long memories will no doubt recall that Final Fantasy VII was originally supposed to launch on the Nintendo 64. Square and Nintendo enjoyed a prosperous relationship through the NES and SNES eras, and it was assumed that this would continue with the company's latest console - especially when Square released a 3D tech demo based on the early N64 hardware.
However, that didn't come to pass and Square took the Final Fantasy series to Sony's PlayStation, citing the low cost of CD-ROM storage as one of the key reasons for the move. It wasn't a clean break for the two companies, with Nintendo allegedly telling Square to "never come back" after joining forces with Sony.
Time heals all wounds and Square and The Big N would, of course, resolve their differences eventually, but Final Fantasy VII - considered to be one of the best entries in the series - has remained a Sony exclusive since then.
Until now, that is.
During today's game-packed Nintendo Direct broadcast it was confirmed that this RPG epic is coming to the Nintendo Switch, along with Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. Apparently, these will all be HD remasters.
That not enough Final Fantasy for you? How about Final Fantasy Pocket Edtion HD and World of Final Fantasy Maxima, too? That still no enough? Then check out Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy! and the remastered Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition. Phew!
We guess Square is pretty much on-board with Switch now, then?
