The more venues where Final Fantasy can be played, the better for the franchise. PlayStation Now members will be able to play select vintage Final Fantasy titles on the streaming service in the coming months.
Final Fantasy is a long-running Square Enix JRPG brand that dates all the way back to the NES. The franchise has been ported to a variety of platforms and is now more accessible than it has ever been. Square Enix has recently begun releasing the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series, which includes enhanced versions of Final Fantasy 1-6.
According to a recent article on the PlayStation Blog, several Final Fantasy titles will be arriving to PS Now in the coming months. Beginning September 7, a new Final Fantasy title will be added to PS Now every month until January, with Final Fantasy 7 being the first.
The following are the other highlighted entries: Final Fantasy 8: Remastered will be released on October 5th; Final Fantasy 9 will be released on November 2nd; Final Fantasy 10/10-2: HD Remaster will be released on December 7th; and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age will be released on January 4th. In August, PS Now introduced some fantastic titles, and with this new development, at least one stellar title will be added each month for the remainder of the year.
Surprisingly, there haven’t been many Final Fantasy games released on PS Now before these. Final Fantasy 15 was deleted from PS Now earlier this year after joining the service’s library in the summer of 2020 and being the only game to do so.
It’s also worth noting that all of these titles are now available for purchase on the PlayStation Store but at various rates. If only the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy were released on PS Now, the PS5 would be able to play the majority of Final Fantasy’s contemporary history.
PS Now may not function similarly to Xbox Game Pass, but it fulfills PlayStation gamers’ demand to stream games. For someone interested in playing these Final Fantasy titles but not necessarily purchasing them, this is a wonderful way to go, especially since the games can be streamed to your console or PC and are all included in the service’s fee.
However, because it is uncertain how long the games will be available on the service, it is best to jump on them as soon as possible because even finishing one might take a long time.
