Square Enix is hosting a new sale on the Switch and 3DS eShops in celebration of E3 2019. Games for Switch and 3DS have been discounted, including Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, I Am Setsuna, World of Final Fantasy Maxima, and more.

Here’s the full lineup:

During its E3 press conference, Square Enix announced a remastered version of Final Fantasy VIII, which is due to be released sometime this year. The remaster technically isn’t being handled by Square Enix however – Dotemu are the ones developing the remaster. Dotemu specialize in bringing retro games to modern platforms; some of their most recent works include Windjammers 1 and 2, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap and Streets of Rage 4.

Square Enix continues to re-releases its older games through remasters and ports. That doesn’t mean you can play everything, however. As one example, there’s currently no way to experience Chrono Trigger on Switch. Square Enix also has a bunch of older titles that have yet to make their way to newer systems.

Interestingly, Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda told Game Informer that hes’ aware of the demand to have the company’s library to be available completely digitally. Matsuda said that a “variety” of plans are in the works on that front, with Square Enix “working hard” to offer “classic titles that you might have played on NES”. In fact, a dedicated project is now in place to port those kinds of titles.
