Final Fantasy XV director “very interested” in Switch
Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV, has significant interest in Switch.
Speaking about Nintendo’s console with French outlet Gameblog, Tabata talked about how he is looking forward to the platform as both a developer and a player. This is also the first time in awhile that he’s has had interest in creating titles for a Nintendo platform.
Tabata’s words in full:
“I’m very interested in this machine! As a player, but also as a developer. 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.
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!”
Gameblog claims to have heard that Final Fantasy XV is planned for Switch, but that’s far from confirmed. That wasn’t something that Tabata said is happening. We can only say that Square Enix intends to support Switch.
