Scheduled Final Fantasy 2017 Releases
To celebrate this huge milestone, publisher Square Enix has a lot planned to delight the fans of the longest-running gaming franchise. As far as main-game releases go, we’re finally getting the long-awaited remake of Final Fantasy VII (the first episode, anyway). The other main release is Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
Fans of Final Fantasy XIII will get the full trilogy on the PlayStation 4. FF XIII, FF XIII-2 and Lightning Returns will all come in a bundle on separate discs. Also, the games will be in 1080p and at a full 60 fps.
Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Collection
This is where the real treat lies. Coming to PS 4 and PS Vita in 2017, this collection includes Final Fantasy I to IX. All the classic, old-school FF games in one awesome bundle. FF I to VI will come in two versions: The original NES/SNES versions and the modern ports. VII, VIII and IX will only come in modern versions.
Not only that, but Final Fantasy II and III for the NES are getting their first official English translation! You’ll also get a built-in art gallery and a menu option to play songs from the included games!
- Standard version
This version will include the nine games and a poster.
- Collector’s Edition
The Collectors edition will also feature all the games and a poster. However, you’ll also get an art book, an 8-bit Black Mage keychain, a Chocobo plush and a double-disc with a collection of songs that Nobuo Uematsu selected.
- Crystal Complete Edition
Now, this is the realest deal. You’ll only be able to get this bundle over the Square Enix PS 4 website, and in limited quantities, too. As you can expect, this bundle is truly massive.
The featured games are: Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Collection titles, Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, the Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy, Final Fantasy XV (including all DLC), Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (including all expansions and a three-month subscription), plus special items for Final Fantasy XI Mobile and Final Fantasy XIV.
However, you’ll also get more physical goodies. Apart from everything you can get in the collector’s edition, you’ll also get two extra soundtrack discs, a crystal necklace, a Moogle plush, a Black Mage statue, all three Final Fantasy Trading Card Game starter decks, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV. The whole bunch will come in a luxury chest with a Final Fantasy logo on it.
We have to add that these plans are all for North America, we don’t know if the rest of the world will have the same or similar deals.
As a last note, the Final Fantasy VII remake and Final Fantasy XV will arrive for the PC, but probably not before 2018.
