Final Fantasy VII and VIII Double Pack Heads to Switch

Cloud and Squall

Nintendo Switch fans who are looking to jump back into some classic PlayStation era role-playing titles will soon be able to pick up both Final Fantasy VII and VIII physically. The best bit? They’re both included on the same cartridge.

This will mark the series’s return to Nintendo, after SquareSoft’s decision to jump ship to Sony during the 32-bit era. This ended almost a decade of support for Nintendo, with the Super Nintendo’s Final Fantasy VI being the final new mainline release on a Nintendo console.

Final Fantasy VII is often credited as being the breakout title in the series for Western audiences. On its release, Final Fantasy VII was applauded for its mature themes and storytelling, as well as its high production value for the time. It also became the first title in the series to be released in Europe and the UK, paving the way for many more JRPG series to make their way West.

For those who are interested in just one of the titles, both Final Fantasy VII and VIII are also available digitally on the Nintendo eShop store, as well other platforms including Steam, Xbox and PlayStation.
