UPDATE 14/9/18: Looks like it’s not just Switch that’ll be drowning in Final Fantasy games by the end of 2019; Microsoft has revealed that a whole host of series instalments are also heading to Xbox One over the next 12 months.
According to a post on Xbox Wire, Xbox One will be receiving the same line-up of past Final Fantasy games announced for Switch during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct. Alongside Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition, which is available now, Final Fantasy 7, 9, 10, 10-2, and 12 (in its Zodiac guise) are all scheduled to arrive in 2019. Still no sign of Final Fantasy 8 though!

ORIGINAL STORY 13/9/18: Nintendo has announced a raft of Final Fantasy games are coming to Switch in 2019.
The headline is Final Fantasy 12, which arrives on Nintendo Switch in Zodiac Age form.
But Final Fantasy 7, 9, 10 and 10-2 are also coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019 – the first time these games will have appeared on a Nintendo console. There was no mention of Final Fantasy 8, for some reason.
