"Final Fantasy XIV" Coming To Nintendo Switch?
"Final Fantasy XIV" was originally available on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 4 and PC. On June 2016, Square Enix was in discussion with Microsoft to bring the multiplayer online role-playing game to Xbox One. "Microsoft actually approached the Final Fantasy 14 team about the cross-platform opportunity," Naoki Yoshida said in a report by Polygon. Could Nintendo Switch be the next in line?
The "Final Fantasy XIV" director is reported to say that the team wants to bring the game to as many platforms as possible. That is, as long as all versions of the game can interact with each other. That said, the availability of cross-platform play seems to be the biggest obstacle of the game coming to the Japanese console. Nintendo Switch is due for release on March 2.
