Hot of the heels of a giant Nintendo Direct, Square Enix has launched a new branding of sorts, with a new page on its website titled, "Discover the Legacy of Final Fantasy". This one is an updated version of the original game, and has a full release date of November 6, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, and the PC.

In 2019, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Remastered Edition, Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 9, Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster, and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age will all be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

That was far from the only Final Fantasy related annoucement though, even accepting that news of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD had already leaked out.

2019 will see the arrival of eight - yes EIGHT - Final Fantasy games, which is probably a billion-ty hours of gameplay right there.

That's a lot of Final Fantasy, but I know what you're thinking: Where's VIII? 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.

The 35-minute presentation was bookended by two major new announcements for next year: Luigi's Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing, and you can read about them and all the other reveals here. The game offers the entire story of the Final Fantasy XV game.
