Square Enix announced several Final Fantasy titles during the Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday.

But one of the biggest surprises was the annoucement that Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age are coming to Switch sometime next year. This is the first time any of these games are being released on a Nintendo system. When it was leaked (and then confirmed) that the Switch was getting the adorable mobile phone version of the game, Final Fantasy fans shrugged with approval - at least it was something. What this essentially is, is a bunch of multiplatform Final Fantasy goodness, the majority of it being titles that were already on PlayStation platforms making their way to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. The game supports two-player co-op. It is now available on PlayStation 4.

In a bombshell of an announcement, a whole slew of Final Fantasy games will be heading to the Switch.

In addition to all the throwback gaming goodness, Nintendo also unveiled some throwback hardware: an updated, wireless version of the iconic old-school NES controllers. And so is World of Final Fantasy, as a new version called World of Final Fantasy Maxima (also coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One).
