Final Fantasy fans will certainly have their hands full this April, as not one, not two, but three of the franchise’s titles will be making their way to the Nintendo Switch. Square Enix has revealed that Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will launch on April 30th 2019, preceded by the Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster release on April 16th.
First to launch is the Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster, which includes copies of both the 2001 classic “Final Fantasy X” and its follow up title “X-2”. The Nintendo Switch release promises updated models, graphical updates to the environments, richer textures, and other visual enhancements.
In addition to newly re-arranged audio, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD will also give players the opportunity to switch back to the classic sound and experience the audio as origonally intended.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is based on the original Final Fantasy XII, which shipped over 6 million copies worldwide since it’s original release in 2006. The remastered version boasts a revamped job system, reconstructed battle design, auto-save functionality, as well as various visual and sound improvements over the original.
Additionally, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age also includes brand new modes such as Speed Mode and Trial Mode – in which players can test themselves in 100 back-to-back battles.
The Nintendo Switch adaptations of Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will be available in both digital and physical formats, priced at $49.99 in the US (with European pricing yet to be announced).
