For years now, it seems like Square Enix has skipped releasing popular Final Fantasy rereleases on Xbox One. While the titles always end up on PlayStation 4, Xbox One owners have been left behind. Luckily, that changed today because Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, and World of Final Fantasy Maxima were all coming to Microsoft' platform.
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition is already available on Xbox One, and World of Final Fantasy Maxima should launch November 6, 2018. The other Final Fantasy games will hit the system sometime in 2019.
This is the long-awaited news Xbox One owners have been waiting to hear for years. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the exact release dates. Until then, we can simply rejoice in the fact that Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, and Final Fantasy XII are launching on the console. A lot of these games are considered cult classics, and some of the best entries in the critically-acclaimed franchise.
Recently, Phil Spencer, Microsoft's Executive Vice President of Gaming, said that he was focusing on bringing more popular Japanese titles to the platform. A few months ago, the Microsoft announced that Nier: Automata was coming to Xbox One. However, that announcement is overshadowed by this one because the Final Fantasy series represents the ultimate Japanese role-playing experience for many gamers.
