The latest updates for "#Final Fantasy XV" will have the #PC version working on older PC platforms and #Hajime Tabata revealed more details on the possible Nintendo Switch version.

Ever since Square Enix announced "Final Fantasy XV" on the PC platform, several PC users are concerned if the game can work properly on older computer ports since it requires a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and a Ryzen 7 7100 CPU. Luckily, game director Hajime Tabata announced that the sequel would work well on four-year old PC platforms.

"PCs that are up to spec similar to the current generation of consoles will have no problem," Tabata told PC Gamer. "That's probably talking about a three of four-year PC with no problem at all."

'FFXV' on older PC ports

PC users are happy to hear that "FFXV" will work on older computer ports since the vast majority of PC gamers do not have a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Ryzen 7 7100 CPU.

Perhaps the sequel will work properly on the GeForce GTX 780 Ti or the older GeForce GT 720.

Square Enix used a new version of the Luminous game engine and NVIDIA's latest technology to develop the PC version, and it will run at 4K resolution with 60fps. Tabata also teased that PC mods will be added in "FFXV," but the developers are worried that users might add explicit content to the modding tools.

Nintendo Switch version, a joke response?

Tabata revealed more details about the future of "Final Fantasy XV" on the Nintendo Switch as he told Kotaku that a representative from Nintendo called him after he made his initial comments about the console in Gamescom 2017.

While the game director did not reveal any specific details of their discussion, he admitted that it was a sort of "joke response" on his part when he talked about the sequel for the Nintendo console.

But Square Enix will not dismiss the possibility, and they are open to any opportunity for future titles for the platform.

Square Enix has tested the Luminous game engine on the Switch, but the results were less than pleasing. Tabata and his team are still figuring out new techniques on how the game engine will work properly on the console since the Unity engine and Unreal Engine 4 worked nicely on the platform.

Tabata also announced that Ardyn Izunia's DLC episode might be ruled out in the game in favor of Lunafreya Nox Fleuret. The Japanese game publisher will likely tell Ardyn's story through a new video game, movie or even a comic book series.

Gladiolus little sister, Iris Amcita will be added int he sequel's online multiplayer mode, "Comrades" and Square Enix will launch Episode Ignis in December.
