I still remember the uproar when Square decided to nix its Final Fantasy game for the N64 and brought Final Fantasy VII to the PlayStation. It was a major shift in the gaming industry. After all these years, the game is finally going to be playable on a Nintendo system. Check out the rest of the games hitting the Switch over the next week:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- FINAL FANTASY VII – The Shinra Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation, has monopolized the planet’s life force. In the urban megalopolis of Midgar, an anti-Shinra rebel group has stepped up its campaign of resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the rebels, unaware that he will be drawn into an epic battle for the fate of the planet. The FINAL FANTASY VII game is available on March 26.
- Unravel Two – When you cut ties to the past, new bonds form. In Unravel Two, create a Yarny of your very own. Then build relationships with other Yarnys in local co-op* or as a single player, fostering friendship and support as you journey together. The Unravel Twogame is available March 22.
- Blaster Master Zero 2 – The side-scrolling/top-down hybrid action adventure gameplay returns with a new sequel to Blaster Master Zero. Experience the yet-untold story of Jason and Eve after defeating Earth’s mutant scourge as they venture into the depths of space in their new battle tank, GAIA-SOPHIA.
- Nuclear Throne – Nuclear Throne is Vlambeer’s latest action roguelike-like about mutants that spend their workdays trying to fight for the throne in a post-apocalyptic world. The radioactive waste in the world allows the player to get ahead by mutating new limbs on the fly. The abundant availability of powerful weaponry makes the quest to become the ruler of the Wasteland one fraught with peril.
