Square Enix reported its financial results today. Along with that, a results briefing was held where the company talked about Switch and more.

As far as support goes, Square Enix won’t rule out any IPs for Switch. Those include new ones, currently active ones, and ones that aren’t active at the moment. While other platforms would probably receive these games as well due to Square Enix’s multiplatform strategy, they would aggressively make titles for Switch.
