Back in September of last year, Square Enix revealed they were bringing a slew of Final Fantasy games to the Nintendo Switch (and Xbox One) for the first time in remastered form. Sadly, we didn’t know when those would be showing up, but this morning we’ve got release dates for a couple!
Both titles will be arriving this April, though at slightly different times. Final Fantasy X and X-2 will hit on April 16th, with Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age launching two weeks later on April 30th:

About FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE
Based on the 12th numbered entry in the smash hit FINAL FANTASY series that has sold over 6 million units worldwide, FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE has re-worked the game’s design and re-mastered their visuals in full-HD, making full use of current generation hardware capabilities to improve the graphical and audio quality for the ultimate play experience. FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE takes place in the breath-taking world of Ivalice, where magic is commonplace and airships fill the sky. The small kingdom of Dalmasca is caught between warring empires Archadia and Rozarria, and the lone heir to the Dalmascan throne, Princess Ashe has devoted herself to forming a resistance to liberate her homeland. The story begins when Ashe meets Vaan, a young thief who dreams of flying free in the skies, as their adventure changes the destiny of the world’s greatest nations.
If you missed out on these when they arrived on the PlayStation 4, or simply want the chance to play on the go with the Switch (I can’t wait), your chance is just a few months away!
