In preparation for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster’s release on Switch and Xbox One, Square Enix has released a new trailer. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is releasing on Switch…
Square Enix has been a bit slower than other companies to jump on the Nintendo Switch wagon. But better late than never.
Last fall Nintendo announced that several Final Fantasy games were coming to Switch. Today Square Enix confirmed the release date for two of its remastered Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD and Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age will arrive on Switch, as well as Xbox One, in April. The remasters were formerly exclusive to PlayStation and PC.
To celebrate the announcement, Akihiko Yoshida created a new piece of artwork showcasing the characters from Final Fantasy XII.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will launch on April 16. The HD remaster originally released in 2013 on PlayStation 3 (and again on PlayStation 4 in 2015, and PC in 2016), and combines both Final Fantasy X and its direct sequel, X-2. Both games launched on the PlayStation 2 in the early 2000s, and Final Fantasy X is regularly ranked as one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made. It represents the first truly modern Final Fantasy game, with voice acting and a fully three dimensional world.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will also be launching on an Xbox console for the first time, as it also arrives on Xbox One on April 16.
But wait there’s more. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is also coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, on April 30. The Zodaic Age version is an HD remaster of the 2006 RPG that launched at the tail end of the PS2’s lifespan. Like the FF X remaster, it uses the improved international version along with updated audio and visual improvements.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age originally launched on PS4 in 2017. FF 12 is often ranked as one of the more underrated Final Fantasy games that didn’t receive the love it deserved when it originally released.
Both Final Fantasy games are rated T for Teen.
PlayStation has a big holiday sale going on. This is its second week, and now there are some more games on sale. Here are the new deals:

Chariot is one of our favorite co-op games. It has a good, fanciful story and cute graphics that make it fun to play with kids.

All of these prices are lower with a PlayStation Plus membership.
Amazon has been advertising their big Prime-members-only sale for the site’s 20th anniversary as “better than Black Friday,” but when it comes right down to it, the Prime Day deals aren’t really that notable or exciting. Read More
