Kotaku recently had an interesting chat with Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata. The talk was initially about the recent Final Fantasy game they teased for the Nintendo Switch and how porting it across to the new system was going. Tabata then proclaimed that he can’t find the lucrative console anywhere and has actively been searching for one.
“I want you to make the headline, ‘Tabata has not been able to purchase the Switch,’”
“I’ve already purchased all this software,” he said. “I have Zelda, Mario Kart, and Splatoon. I just haven’t been able to purchase the hardware.”
But wait a minute, I said. He’d just said that Nintendo gave him a call. Why not ask his contacts over there to hook him up?
“Because then I’d owe them, and I’ll have to support Nintendo,” Tabata said, laughing. “I want to have a neutral standing.”
