Square Enix has kicked off a new sale on the Switch / 3DS eShops. Fans can save big on Final Fantasy, SaGa, and more.

Here’s the full lineup:

For the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Square Enix revisited the original game’s soundtrack. Not only were many pieces of music revamped, but a couple of new tracks were added to the experience as well. That all comes courtesy of original composers Kumi Tanioka and Hidenori Iwasaki as well as English vocalist and game narrator Donna Burke.

Prior to the launch of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Nintendo Everything was given the opportunity to pass along a few questions to Tanioka, Iwasaki, and Burke. They touched on their experience with the original game as well as their contributions to the new version.

In an interview with Ntower, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory co-director Masanobu Suzui spoke about why the game will be released on Switch.

Suzui started out by mentioning franchise director Tetsuya Nomura’s interest in the system. Since Switch is very popular around the world currently with a big install base, that was another important factory. Ultimately the team wanted as many people as possible to experience the music of Kingdom Hearts.

Suzui stated:

Square Enix has delivered a new batch of details and screenshots for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. On top of that, we have information pertaining to confirmed songs, Versus Mode version differences, and more.

Here’s the full roundup, courtesy of Gematsu:

Square Enix will finally be bringing a Kingdom Hearts game to Switch this year, but perhaps not in the way that fans had hoped. Rather than releasing one of the core past titles, we’re instead getting Melody of Memory – a rhythm action spinoff.

Unfortunately, Square Enix isn’t planning any other Kingdom Hearts games for Switch at the moment. Franchise director Tetsuya Nomura told Nintendo Enthusiast that the company considered porting other entries in the series, but found things to be technologically difficult.

Game Informer was recently able to speak with Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory producer Ichiro Hazama, co-director Masanobu Suzui, and franchise director Testuya Nomura about the upcoming Switch title. They discussed how the project happened and why it’s not a Theatrhythm title. On top of that, we have a bunch of new details as well.
