Final Fantasy VII Will be “Coming Soon” to Switch, According to New Nintendo Commercial
A new Switch commercial features brief gameplay footage of the beloved Final Fantasy VII being played in handheld mode.
Nintendo and Square Enix announced late in 2018 that it was planning to bring a variety of Final Fantasy titles from the past to Switch in the future. While we’ve since received a release date for Final Fantasy X/X-2 on the platform, news on other entries like FF7 and FF9 still have yet to be shared.
Well, today word on at least Final Fantasy VII’s arrival was shared by Nintendo, though a particular release date for the classic title has still yet to be given. As showcased in a new Switch commercial, we can see a few moments of gameplay for FF7 on Switch and it looks just like you’d probably expect it to. The trailer itself then doesn’t say anything about the game’s potential arrival on Switch, but the description for the video on YouTube says it is “coming soon.”
So when exactly does “coming soon” peg FF7 for a potential release? It’s hard to say, but considering the aforementioned Final Fantasy X bundle and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age are both landing on Switch in April, a release date around that same time seems feasible. I doubt Square would want to drop all of these Final Fantasy games at once on fans though and instead would maybe prefer to stagger them out. Because of this, I think a release any time in March or May for both FF7 and FF9 could make sense. This is all just my own personal guess though, so don’t take it as truth.
The new commercial in question from today is attached below in case you want to check it out. As soon as we hear more on Final Fantasy VII’s actual release date for Switch, we’ll let you know.
