Square Enix Is Fully Committed To Switch

Square Enix has once again reiterated its plans for the Nintendo Switch.

In its outline for the financial results briefing, the company detailed how it would support the system going forward, focusing more on mid-range titles and drawing on existing IPs to boost their presence on Nintendo’s hybrid console.

Of course, we have Project Octopath Traveller due out in 2018 (which you can download a demo for right now), and are likely to receive Final Fantasy XV in some form in the future, but what other games would you like to see from the publisher?

You can read the relevant information from the briefing below:

Q: Where do you intend to prioritize allocation of your development resources going forward?

A: We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform. In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform.

Q: What do you think of Nintendo Switch, and how are you approaching development efforts for it?

A: Nintendo Switch is seeing rapid uptake, and we welcome the arrival of such a platform. We intend to be proactive in our development efforts given that it’s a platform that is well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel.

    1. Agreed. I know it will never happen, but I would kill to see Xenogears on the Switch. With every game I see with Xeno in the title, I die a little more inside.

      1. That’s true for most of the old Enix(Soft) games. So I’m really hoping they pull through on this one, I miss my childhood high quality games. Fingers crossed!
