Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Not too long ago, Virtuos announced some news that slipped under the radar. The developer has confirmed that it is working on both Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age for Switch. This isn’t too big of a surprise given that Virtuos previously handled these re-releases for Square Enix.

Virtuos is also a good fit for Switch development. The company helped bring over L.A. Noire and Dark Souls: Remastered, and also served as the lead on Starlink: Battle for Atlas for Nintendo’s console.

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age were both dated for Switch this week. The west are getting the RPGs on April 16 and April 30 respectively while Japan will have them on April 11 and April 25. Coinciding with the latest news, we have a look at the Japanese boxarts for both titles.

First up, here’s the one for Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster:

During a Nintendo Direct in September, Square Enix announced plans to bring a bunch of Final Fantasy games to Switch. Some of these were given release dates today.

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster will launch on Switch on April 16. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will follow on April 30.

Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy to Switch in a big way over the next several months. Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD is out now, World of Final Fantasy Maxima is following in November, and we’re getting a ton of games next year – including Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

Amazon has added in a listing for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which comes with the boxart shown above. It also confirms a price point of $49.99. The RPG is also coming to Xbox One and costs the same amount, so there won’t be a price hike for the Switch version fortunately.
