We knew that Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age and Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster were headed to Nintendo Switch (along with a whole lot of other Final Fantasy games), but we’ve finally got some release dates: April 16 for Final Fantasy X | X-2, and April 30 for Final Fantasy XII. The announcement came with a delightful new piece of art for The Zodiac Age by Akihiko Yoshida, pictured above.

Dragon's Dogma Switch

If you haven’t already played it any of its previous releases (hell, even if you have), Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is worth paying attention to. It’s Capcom’s take on a Western-style RPG, delivering an epic dragon-killing adventure and rich combat. This version includes all previously-released DLC, and the iconic Pawn system—which lets you recruit AI-controlled versions of other players—won’t require a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

Neko Navy – Daydream Edition is another game worth checking out, even if shoot ’em ups normally aren’t your thing. It’s much less brutal than your typical shmup, but still plenty rewarding, and its cute art and oddball sense of humour are a delight.

What are you most looking forward to?

(Important note: we’re not including announcements of Switch as a platform for upcoming games, which would usually get their own news coverage anyway. This is list is purely for announcements of Switch ports / re-releases and the like.)
