Final Fantasy XIV on Nintendo Switch!? FFXIV on XBOX!? Say it ain’t so! This is the dream many of us FF addicts have been asking, requesting, and begging Square-Enix to do.
Everyone this is amazing MMOJRPG news! Final Fantasy 14 is still going strong years after its original release, with Square Enix continuing to support its MMORPG with new never ending content, It would be going even stronger with a release on another special platform that everyone can take with them on their backpacks. Square Enix, publisher and developer of the seminal Final Fantasy role-playing game (RPG) series, seems keen to bring its widely popular massively-multiplayer online (MMO) entry in the series, Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV), to the Nintendo Switch (but no official announcement yet!)
Speaking with VGR, Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida confirmed that discussions are happening about bringing the game to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One with cross-platform play with PC and PlayStation 4.
While we know that discussions are already happening about other platforms, I wanted to know if there was any update that Yoshida could give us. He noted that they want “as many to play as possible.” Discussions are still “ongoing” with all three publishers – Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo – to see if the game can come to Xbox One and Switch with cross-play with the PC and PS4 versions. Yoshida noted he “hopes to announce something as soon as we can.”
Final Fantasy XIV currently stands as the 2nd largest MMO only 2nd to World of WarCraft. So making this move on the Nintendo Switch might help beef up and revive the series once again. Can you imagine playing FFXIV on the go? using your mobile hotspot?
