Almost a full decade worth of Final Fantasy games will soon be coming to the Nintendo Switch, including fan favorite Final Fantasy 9.

During yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation, it was revealed that a slew of Final Fantasy games would be making their way to the Nintendo Switch. The game will have a new "avatar change" feature that allows the player to become classic Final Fantasy characters.

You Can Play Forza Horizon 4 Demo On Your Xbox and PC
You can also earn Influence by streaming Horizon 4, and you'll get larger rewards for attracting more viewers. The demo will give fans a "healthy heaping of open-world gameplay to enjoy".

On PS4, you can buy ports of the PlayStation versions of Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 9, as well as HD remakes of 10 and 12, but you can't get 8. It's now becoming the black sheep of the Final Fantasy family, having not been remastered for mobile hardware like its late-90s brethren have been.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima is a cutesy adventure through Grymoire where you'll meet heroes from numerous past FF games, coming this November. World of Final Fantasy originally launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in October 2016, and for PC in November 2017.

On a personal note, I've never played most of these games so their arrival on other platforms makes me really happy.

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.
