World of Final Fantasy Maximo

Vaan, meet Mario: of all the highlights and reveals from Nintendo's much-anticipated, earthquake-delayed Nintendo Direct event Thursday, none had more of a mic-drop feel than the surprising news that nearly all the mainline Final Fantasy games from the PlayStation's golden era will soon be making their home on the Nintendo Switch. This new version includes more Champions (classic Final Fantasy characters) and Mirages (monsters), and a new feature called Avatar Change that allows you to actually play as some of those Champions, rather than just summon them. Also, in 2019, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X and X-2, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will all also be arriving on the platform. Six titles were under the spotlight in the news with one of those already being available as FINAL FANTASY XV POCKET EDITION HD released for the Xbox One last week.

The first game is Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, and it's a souped-up version of 2007 Wii title Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon.

World of Final Fantasy is coming November 6.

The 35-minute presentation was bookended by two major new announcements for next year: Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing, and you can read about them and all the other reveals here. Additionally, what about all of those Final Fantasy games that appeared on Nintendo hardware?
