“It’s a console that sounds a lot like Twitch…”
Square Enix has released Final Fantasy 15 for the PS4 and Xbox One, with a Windows version, as well as a mobile version for iOS and Android in the works- and now, they may be looking to bring it over to the last major platform that hasn’t received it as of yet.
Final Fantasy 15 director Hajime Tabata appeared on Twitch in a stream today to discuss the upcoming Final Fantasy 15 projects; while on there, he teased the possibility of a Switch version of the game, too. “We can’t give you any complete solid details at the moment,” he said, “But there’s another certain console out there that you may be thinking of, it sounds a little bit like your name Twitch.”
There is literally only one console that sounds like Twitch…
Regardless, Final Fantasy 15 on the Nintendo Switch would be a huge symbolic win for Nintendo- because this will be the first time in 23 years, since 1994’s Final Fantasy 6, that a mainline Final Fantasy game makes it over to the system. Of course, it is unclear exactly how Square would make this happen- the game is incredibly technically demanding, and the Switch, for all its merits, isn’t the most technically impressive system. Or will this just be the mobile edition?
It will be interesting to see how Square goes about this, that is for sure.
