Release dates confirmed for Final Fantasy X, X-2 and XII on Switch

We have a soft spot for the Final Fantasy series, with Final Fantasy X being one of our all-time favourite JRPGs, and so we were stunned when it was announced last year that a lot of the series were making their way to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One this year.

 

To that end, Square-Enix today announced that Nintendo Switch and Xbox One players can soon experience the legendary and beloved adventures of FINAL FANTASY® X / X-2 HD Remaster on 16th April 2019 and FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE™ on 30th April 2019.
