The wait is almost over.
Thanks to a plentiful Nintendo Direct last year, we knew plenty of Final Fantasy games would be coming to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One this year and now thanks to news from both Nintendo and Square Enix, now we know the exact date for three of the upcoming games.
First up is the rather special HD remaster of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 on April 16 and then two weeks later, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will be out on April 30.
