Final Fantasy VII has officially released on the Nintendo Switch, 22 years after its original release date.
The title is based on the same version that has been available on PlayStation 4 for the past several years. The port includes 3× speed mode, the ability to turn random encounters off, and a battle enhancement mode that allows players to heal and max out their Limit Break gauges in the middle of a fight.
Final Fantasy VII is the first game in the series to not release exclusively on Nintendo consoles. The title was originally a project for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, but development came to a pause to bring more resources over to Chrono Trigger.
Nintendo also plans to eventually bring Final Fantasy IX, X, X-2, and XII to the Switch. Decades have passed, but Nintendo loyalists are finally being treated to a few of the best JRPGs of all time.

Final Fantasy VII is available now on the eShop for USD$15.99.
