Square Enix has published a new announcement covering the latest news for Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy VII, and Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy! on Switch. We’ve included it below.

Fans and new players alike can celebrate the arrival of classic FINAL FANTASY titles on modern platforms starting with today’s arrival of FINAL FANTASY IX on the Nintendo Switch system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Windows 10. The release is followed closely by Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! launching March 20 and FINAL FANTASY VII releasing on March 26.

Originally released in 2000, FINAL FANTASY IX is a thrilling tale of love, war, magic and self-discovery. Newcomers and veterans alike can experience legendary moments with Zidane, Vivi, princess Garnet and others with modern enhancements on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows 10, including high-definition movies and character models, auto-save functionality and more.

Square made a major change with the Final Fantasy series starting with the seventh entry. Whereas previous titles graced Nintendo hardware, Final Fantasy VII only ended up on PlayStation. Since then, Square Enix has kept the main entries off Nintendo platforms.

Earlier this week, Polygon published a massive feature on Final Fantasy VII, which includes interviews with many of the RPG’s developers. At one point, the conversation specifically focused on settling on the PlayStation over the N64. Character programmer Hiroshi Kawai said “you would get nowhere near anything like a Final Fantasy running” on Nintendo hardware, later adding that he heard from the big N to “never come back.”

Former Square president Hisashi Suzuki commented on this subject many years ago. At the time, he claimed Nintendo became frustrated when Square left, but also when when Square later helped convince others (like Enix), to leave as well.
