Final Fantasy 9 is out on Switch later today, Final Fantasy 7 will release in March

Nintendo has used their Nintendo Direct presentation to reveal that Final Fantasy 7 will arrive on Nintendo Switch on Tuesday 26th March, and better yet, Final Fantasy 9 will be available later today (or tomorrow, depending where you live).

Of course, we knew these games were coming—Nintendo announced them during September’s Nintendo Direct—but we didn’t know any release dates until now, and we certainly didn’t expect Final Fantasy 9 to be out today. These two classics will be joined on the Nintendo Switch by the spin-off game Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy, which is due to release on Wednesday 20th March.

Final Fantasy 9 originally released on the PlayStation all the way back in 2000 and became an instant classic, receiving wide critical acclaim. It didn’t sell as well as Final Fantasy 7 though, which released on the PlayStation even further back (obviously) in 1997 to similar critical acclaim and great commercial success. Final Fantasy 7 is widely regarded as one of the greatest games of all time.

These updated classics will get even more Final Fantasy-based company on Nintendo’s console this year, when both Final Fantasy 10 and Final Fantasy 10-2 also arrive on the Switch on Tuesday 16th April.

As a side note, all four of these remasters will also be releasing on Xbox One this year too. Final Fantasy 9, which was always slated as releasing for the Switch, Xbox One, and PC, is available on all platforms as of today.
