#2. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was a game way ahead of its time on a console not capable of making it the best experience. Initially coming out for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2004, it was a multi-player focused action-RPG that to play with others, they had to have not controllers, but their own Gameboy Advance and a link cable.

Let me tell you I spent a lot of hours getting together sessions of this game in college, and I often needed to have multiple  Game Boy Advances and link cables handy because inevitably one or two people wouldn’t have it. Assuming you had those things, however, the game was a complete blast, and you could spend an entire evening (or even a full day in some cases) playing the game. You could play solo, but it lost a lot of the fun and was a lot more challenging.

So now that it’s 2019 and we have systems with online capabilities (and smartphones), it’s pretty much the ideal time to play Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles on a modern platform. Square Enix agrees as Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is coming to the Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android and PS4.

However, the reason Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered will arguably be best on the Nintendo Switch is similar to the reason you needed a Gameboy Advance for the original release. Though you can play online, the game works best when you are together with friends in the same space and can easily communicate with each other, but also you have your own screen to work with.

The only system that fits these requirements is the Nintendo Switch, so it will be the best place to play Final Fantasy Chronicles Remastered later this year.
