Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD for Switch launches today

Square Enix took a chance on the Nintendo Switch by releasing a classic-style JRPG called Octopath Traveler as an exclusive for the console. While Nintendo got to steal the spotlight of having Final Fantasy on the Switch, it isn't the only new platform receiving these games. It will be joined by the spinoff games World of Final Fantasy: Maxima on November 8 and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Everybuddy! this winter.

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is the first time any of these games are being released on a Nintendo system.

2019 will see the arrival of eight - yes EIGHT - Final Fantasy games, which is probably a billion-ty hours of gameplay right there.

"Final Fantasy VII", "Final Fantasy IX", and "Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster" are all on their way, along with the recently released "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age". This version will allow you to "befriend all the monsters", as well as play co-op with a buddy.

In the meantime, it's also unclear why Final Fantasy 8 wasn't included in the lineup.

Soon after this reveal during the Direct, it was announced that in addition to coming to Switch, all of those same aforementioned titles other than Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon and Crystal Chronicles Remastered will also be arriving on Xbox One.

Of course, that's just speculation at this time.
