So bizarre that this isn't on console, especially the Switch with it's ARM/Android code base that should mean a simple/quick/cheap port from regular Android.

Absolutely. Some weirdness between Square and Nintendo, weirder even than the Kingdom Hearts cloud port.

I mean, they are starting to come around, finally putting FF7 on a Nintendo console after a mere 21-22 years :D

I’d guess that if they release to consoles, Switch will be in the mix one way or another. I find RPGs are well suited to mobile, but the issue is that Final Fantasy games tend not to have the most usable UI, it’s often style over substance - like that FF6 mobile game from a few years ago, or the elements are too small - like FF Tactics, although that was back when the average phone screen was a lot smaller than today..

On the other hand, Dragon Quest has been fantastic.

Hell yes. My favorite FF.

On a side note the Pixel remasters in general have been pretty damn good. Wish they were available on other platforms as well but I don't mind playing them on PC.
