Square Enix Wants To Put New And Old IP On The Switch

Square Enix games are no stranger to Nintendo consoles, and Nintendo fans are definitely no stranger to their games as well.

In their latest financial report’s Q&A session, Square Enix has voiced their opinions on developing for the Nintendo Switch. When asked, they commented that the nature of the Nintendo Switch makes it great for mid-sized titles of their new and existing IPs and that they are interested in rebooting some past titles for it.

Q: Where do you intend to prioritize allocation of your development resources going forward?

A: We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform. In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform.

Q: What do you think of Nintendo Switch, and how are you approaching development efforts for it?

A: Nintendo Switch is seeing rapid uptake, and we welcome the arrival of such a platform. We intend to be proactive in our development efforts given that it’s a platform that is well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel.

As we speak Square Enix is actively working on Project Octopath Traveler for the Nintendo Switch, which will be released early next year. You can read the full Q&A here.
