Classic Final Fantasy Games Coming to Xbox Game Pass

There's good news this week for anyone that's been wanting to play classic Final Fantasy titles like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, Final Fantasy IX, and more on their Xbox One. Rather than having to pay for each individual game, interested folks will be able to play all of them for one subscription price when they -- and more -- come to Xbox Game Pass in 2020.

The reveal that several classic Final Fantasy titles would be coming to Xbox Game Pass occurred during this week's X019 event from Xbox. The Final Fantasy games weren't the only announced upcoming addition to the service, however. A whole slew of new games are set to be added, and the nine Final Fantasy games coming to the service are just the tip of the iceberg.

When, exactly, the Final Fantasy titles mentioned above will actually be joining the service in 2020 is anyone's guess at this point, but the fact remains that they are locked in for inclusion. Plus, it's not like you need nine different Final Fantasy games to play through right this moment, and it might even make the most sense to release them in chunks rather than all at once.

For the curious, here's the full listing of Xbox Game Pass stuff that was announced at X019:
