It’s clear that Square Enix has been serious about supporting the Nintendo Switch since its inception. That’s why we have titles like I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear, and Romancing SaGa 2 on the console, and we can take them wherever we go. And that’s why it doesn’t come as any sort of surprise that Square Enix is interested in developing additional titles for the handheld.
In an interview with Edge in the magazine’s latest issue, Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda proclaimed that the company’s titles “haven’t done badly” when released on Switch. “It’s a very attractive platform – there are a lot of people within the company that are looking to make games for Switch,” he said.
There’s a lot more for Switch on the docket for Square Enix already, too, with games like The World Ends With You -Final Remix-, Fear Effect Sedna, and Project Octopath Traveler still slated for release later this year. Recently, the bubbly Minecraft-esque title Dragon Quest Builders came to Switch, one of the best places it could have decided to make a home, given that it originally landed on PlayStation Vita as one of its debut consoles.
Square Enix could potentially bring a number of classic titles from its library to the Switch, and that would make plenty of fans happy. Here’s hoping that’s an option in the future.
