Over the years Chunsoft has granted the license on the series to several developers, including Nintendo. He used the license for the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. Mystery Dungeon contains roguelike elements, where the player has to navigate through procedurally generated dungeons. In addition, characters do not come back when they die.
The ports that receive the FF games from the main series are based on remasters that have been released in recent years. According to Eurogamer it is the first time these games are released on a Nintendo console. Final Fantasy VIII is the only game that is missing. Why FF VIII gets no port is not known.
