#Final Fantasy XV” was possibly one of the biggest titles released last year, marking the end of its infamous 10-year development. Despite all of its delays, the game managed to release on the PS4 and Xbox One successfully. While the latest entry in the mainline series had plenty of loopholes in its plot, the game was well-received and even managed to save the franchise. Here, fans take the role of Prince Noctis who journeys with his three friends to reclaim his throne. While game director Hajime Tabata previously teased a version for the Nintendo #Switch, he went on to clarify his previous vague statement.

A mainline entry on the Switch?

Not too long ago, Square Enix formally announced the “Final Fantasy XV: #Pocket Edition” for mobile devices.

This bite-sized version of the game contained the entire cast and plot at the exchange of realistic graphics and deep, intuitive combat. The developers created chibi models of the game’s world and streamlined combat for more casual play. This version is slated to release this year on mobile devices with a total of 10 episodes, the first one being free.Aside from its said platform, many believed that it would also make a perfect version for the Nintendo Switch.

Adding fuel to the fire, Tabata vaguely mentioned something about his team looking into creating an “FFXV” project for a system that rhymes with “Twitch.” [VIDEO] In spite of this, the director clarified his previous statement during an interview with Dual Shockers wherein he claimed that his team is simply “looking into” the Switch to see what the hardware is capable of.

With that being said, it’s almost certain that the Luminous Engine can’t run on the hybrid console, which powers the game on both the PS4 and Xbox One. Nonetheless, Tabata and the other developers are still considering what they can do for the Nintendo Switch

PC version

Aside from the Pocket Edition, Square Enix is also finally bringing over the latest entry to the PC. Previously, Tabata also continuously teased “Final Fantasy XV” for PC and now he finally did it. This version will integrate NVIDIA tech along with GeForce so players can record and save their gameplay. This version, dubbed the Windows Edition, is slated to release sometime next year [VIDEO], so that’s something to look forward to.

“Final Fantasy XV” is now available to play on the PS4 and Xbox One. There’s no official release date for the Pocket Edition nor Windows Edition as of now.
