World of Final Fantasy Maxima has a release date of 6th November 2018, but the rest of the ports are all just nebulously 2019 dated. Hot of the heels of a giant Nintendo Direct, Square Enix has launched a new branding of sorts, with a new page on its website titled, "Discover the Legacy of Final Fantasy".

As for the rest of the event, Nintendo covered plenty more ground, most of which touched on previous announcements.

A host of new and classic Final Fantasy games are coming to Switch next year, including Final Fantasy IX, X|X-2 HD, and XII: The Zodiac Age.

Interesting to note is that Final Fantasy XVIII is missing from this list, and why wonder why Square Enix has chose to skip this Switch port.

Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY!, a "return" to the 2007 game Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon, will debut for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this winter.

Beyond these PSX and PS2 re-releases, the Nintendo Switch will also be getting some extra Final Fantasy love in the form of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles as well as recent release Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition, which should be coming to the Switch sometime soon.

World of Final Fantasy will also make its way to PC.

Lastly, a new mini-game where you'll get to go fishing with Noctis.

Final Fantasy 7 is out now for PC, PS1, PS4, iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch.
