Hashimoto commnents on the possibility of porting Final Fantasy V/VI for 3DS
“As you saw from Nintendo’s press conference yesterday, there is new hardware coming out. We knew that was coming. We had to make decisions understanding that there were hardware changes in the near future and where want to put our resources…No decision has been made. Rather than creating [Final Fantasy] V or VI for the current DS we want to take a look to see how 3DS does, how it evolves, and then make a decision.” – Shinji Hashimoto
You may remember that, a few weeks ago, Hashimoto said that there would be “technical issues” in porting Final Fantasy V and VI for the DS. But with the added power and capabilities of the 3DS, that shouldn’t be a problem. It’s just a matter of what Square Enix is interested in doing it!
