Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII and the recently remade Final Fantasy VIII will be getting physical releases on Switch after all. Being called the Twin Pack, both games will be packaged together on one cartridge for sale in Asia.
Final Fantasy VII was announced to be coming to Nintendo Switch back in Nintendo’s 2018 September Direct and released in March of this year. Final Fantasy VIII was shown off at Square Enix’s E3 2019 conference and confirmed for Nintendo Switch, this would then release on September 3rd. This was the first time either game ever appeared on a Nintendo console.
Final Fantasy VII is one of the most beloved games of, possibly, all time. It was released to critical acclaim and is often regarded as the greatest entry in the entire franchise. It’s a game so beloved that it’s being remade from the ground up for PlayStation 4. This PlayStation 4 Remake will also include a Classic Mode for those who want to play it similar to how the original plays. Final Fantasy VIII also received great praise when it was released, but not on the scale of VII.
These remastered versions improve the game’s frame rate and graphics, especially the character models. With Nintendo Switch, you can play the games wherever you are and never stop. If you aren’t into Nintendo consoles, both remasters are available digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
