Final Fantasy VII At Last On Switch

It was the mid-90s, and two of the best game-makers in the known universe were buddy-buddy enough to collaborate on a Mario RPG game for the SNES. Then Nintendo announced their next console would run on cartridges again. Square said "Wait a minute, we want to do cutscenes and CD-quality music...we need more space than a cartridge can hold." Nintendo replied with "Tough; our machine, our rules. Run over to Sony if you don't like it."

Square would do just that, and the first Final Fantasy to appear on a non-Nintendo platform would become its greatest success, and a major selling point for the Playstation. Since a disagreement between Nintendo and Sony created the Playstation in the first place, Nintendo was kind of its own worst enemy in those days.

Nintendo and Square are on friendlier terms now...not quite "Mario RPG 2 announcement" terms, but enough to play catch-up and re-release every Playstation Final Fantasy that Nintendo machines never got. Final Fantasy IX is already available and numbers X, X-2 and XII will arrive next month. But today, at last, the game that started it all, the one that started the whole controversy, has arrived on Mario's shores: Final Fantasy VII.

LOS ANGELES (Mar. 26, 2019) Fans and newcomers alike can now experience the legendary RPG classic FINAL FANTASY® VII on Nintendo and Microsoft platforms for the first time, as the title arrives on the Nintendo Switch™ system and the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, today.

In FINAL FANTASY VII, the world has fallen under the dominion of the Shinra™ Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation that has monopolized the planet's life force as Mako energy. Players will follow the story of the powerful ex-SOLDIER turned mercenary, Cloud, in an attempt to save the world from destruction, alongside the anti-Shinra resistance group Avalanche. Using innovative character customization options to create fun and interesting combinations of their favorite party members, players can fight to save the planet and discover the truth about Cloud’s mysterious past.

FINAL FANTASY VII on Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One includes the following enhancements:
• 3x speed mode
• An enemy encounter option that allows players to enjoy the storyline uninterrupted. While enemy encounters are turned off, players can still enjoy the story event battles.

I rather have the modded pc version where the character models are replaced with modern graphics. This game is a classic but it did not aged well. I mean VIII is a less popular game but if you release it a mobile game , no one will complain from the graphics because the game aged well. I won't be buying it because I have the modded version already.
