    Weren't those just the PC ports?

    It'd be nice if Square would release the PSP Version of FF4/FF4: The After Years instead of the odd Mobile version. It would also be nice to get original FFVI.

    I don't know about IX, but VII on the PC is based on the PS3 version. X/X-2 and XII on the PC are based on the PS4 versions.

    The switch is really turning into a port dumpster.

    The difference is the portability.

    Isn't the PS3 version the PS1 Classics version? The PS4 version is the PC version with "cheat options." The PC version is based on the Eidos translation, not the PS1.

    As long as the ports aren't taking time from developers who would otherwise be making new games (and 99% of the time, the porting is done by separate development teams) then I don't see the problem. Although as someone else mentioned earlier, I wish they'd port some Gamecube, Wii and Wii U games that aren't available on other platforms first.

    No it is not. VII on the PC is nothing more than a slightly modified version of a 1998 port by Eidos.

    What is the price going to be if these are full price titles then the whole line up is quite disappointing

    Already have most of those games on Vita BUT if they release these as physical instead of just digital I will buy them.

    I agree with both points here - yes, it's awesome to have these titles ported to a portable platform, but it's also getting to be a bit much.

    Final Fantasy IX just came out today on Xbox One and Switch. IX is a Play Anywhere title on Xbox One, so if you buy it for that console you can also play it on a Windows 10 PC through the Windows Store. I have not seen yet if this version is any different than the version already available on Steam.



    We also got a release date for Final Fantasy VII of March 26.

    It's the first time being released on a Microsoft console.

    I prefer the original PC version of VII. At least you can mod that. What we really need is the actual complete remake of VII but it will be a while before we see that released.

    Hell yeah, grabbing this right now. Link, for anyone interested: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/final-fantasy-ix-switch

    FFIX is by far my favorite FF, I've mentioned this before in the various FF threads that have come and gone. Great that it's the more recent version that was remastered as well.
