Announce The World Ends With You 2, please.
One of the biggest supporters for the Nintendo Switch in the third party community has been Square Enix, who actually jumped the gun in declaring their support for the system by announcing Dragon Quest 11 for it, way before Nintendo had even announced the Switch officially.
That support for the handheld-console hybrid is expected to continue- because of the strong position the Switch enjoys in Japan, as well as the rest of the world, and because of its ability to support mid range games, which the PS4 and Xbox One can’t really do, Square Enix is looking at leveraging its catalog for the Switch.
“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,” Yosuke Matsuda, Square Enix’s President, recently said to Gematsu in an interview.
What could this mean? SaGa? The World Ends With You? Chrono Trigger? Something else entirely? The world is Square’s oyster- and I can’t wait to see what titles they end up putting on the Switch in the near future.
