Final Fantasy XV Director is “Very Interested” in Nintendo Switch


While Square Enix has pledged support to the Nintendo Switch as a third party developer like we all expected, the publisher currently has nothing announced for the newly unveiled hybrid console. That might change soon, however, if a tease from Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata is anything to go by.

In an interview with French outlet GameBlog (via LuigiBlood), Tabata teased up his excitement for the console:

“I’m very interested in this machine! As a player, but also as a developer,” Tabata said. “The Nintendo Switch that you can transform into a controller, that you can put into a dock, that you can move around with, on which you can replace elements.”

He continued praising the system, saying he’s excited at the opportunity to develop games for the console:

“It’s been a while that I’ve told myself that I would like to make games on a Nintendo machine, so if the Nintendo Switch could be that opportunity, I’ll be delighted!”
