Square Enix has kicked off a new sale on the Switch eShop. A number of high-profile titles have been discounted, including many Final Fantasy titles, Collection of Mana, and more.

Here’s the full list:

Dragon Quest XI S is finally launching on Switch tomorrow. It’s been a long time coming, as we’ve known about the game ever since the console was given its NX code name. There weren’t too many that knew what the Switch actually was at the time – including some of the top developers at Square Enix.

During today’s Dragon Quest XI S Channel: Countdown Special live stream, the developers discussed Dragon Quest XI S’s long journey to Switch. Late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, before his passing, had conversations with them about the hardware, and revealed its hybrid ability of being able to play at home or on the go. Other crucial information like the system’s name were still under wraps.

Some might be curious why Dragon Quest XI S was announced so early, and why it was made known before the Switch was unveiled. We can thank Iwata for that, as it was a request of his for the RPG to appear on Nintendo’s new platform. The developers said in the stream that they’ve now delivered on their promise to bring Dragon Quest XI S to Switch.

As a reminder, this is the first physical release of Final Fantasy VII & Final Fantasy VIII Remastered. It originates from Asia, but full English support is included.

Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered are getting a physical release, Square Enix has revealed. The two RPGs will be sold in a single package for Switch later this year. Best of all, an English language option has been confirmed.

Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered are both currently available on the Switch eShop. The latter game was thought to be receiving a physical version, but that didn’t pan out. Now, however, we know that there will be a physical edition for both classics thanks to this new Asian release.
