Square Enix may have voiced their interest in Nintendo’s upcoming console, but the director of Final Fantasy XV has said he has no interest in a Switch release. In an interview with DualShockers, Hajime Tabata has said that they haven’t even really considering testing the game on the system. Barring remakes, a mainline game hasn’t released on a Nintendo system since Final Fantasy VI. Check out the full interview here.
G: Is there any possibility for Final Fantasy XV to be released on Nintendo Switch?
HT: There are no Plans, it wouldn’t run…
G: It wouldn’t run at all?
HT: It might run… But we haven’t conducted the proper tests on whether it would run properly on Switch or not, so I cannot say for sure.
G:So there is no plan at all?
HT: There are no plans for Switch at the moment, but overall, there is interest in the platform among the development team. We do have lots of Nintendo fans inside BD2.
Incidentally, I think that Switch would be really cool if it could run Android apps on its portable screen…
Thanks, N-Dub Nation
