#Final Fantasy XV” released late last year, but it doesn’t seem like game director Hajime Tabata is finished with the game. They’re hard at work creating new content for the game, including free updates, character DLCs, and multiplayer expansions. Moreover, they’ve even trying to port the game over to other systems so more fans can experience the game. In line with this, Tabata previously teased that they have something special in store for the Nintendo #Switch.

A full Switch port?

Speaking to Eurogamer, the game director claimed that he and his team were running tests to see if the main version of “Final Fantasy XV” could run on the Switch.

He stated that they were doing “specific technical investigations” to see what’s possible. “We're currently in the middle of the discussion and debate about what we should be doing, and how to realize that on the Switch," Tabata added. That said, it seems like they’re still trying to discuss if it’s actually worth bringing the latest “Final Fantasy” game over to Nintendo’s latest console.

Despite their tests, he claimed that they still can’t announce anything at the moment as they haven’t agreed on the best way to bring the game over to the Switch. While the hybrid console isn’t as powerful as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, there have been plenty of high-profile ports announced for the system. The Switch will be getting “Skyrim” and “L.A. Noire” this November, while “Doom” and “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus” is slated to release soon.

Other ports

Aside from the Switch, #Square Enix will be bringing over “FFXV” to other platforms. They’ll be releasing a Windows Edition sometime next year that will support Nvidia technology for better gameplay and graphics. Similarly, you can also record and share gameplay with Nvidia GeForce.

Later this year, the developers will also be releasing a Pocket Edition of the game. This version will contain the same cast and characters, except it will have chibi graphics instead. The Pocket Edition will be an episodic game consisting of ten parts. The first episode will be completely free, while you’ll have to pay for the rest if you want to finish the game. The gameplay has also been streamlined for the casual audience, relying more on touch controls.

Incidentally, Square Enix will be releasing Episode Ignis later this December while they’ll be launching the multiplayer expansion next month. There will also be another free story update that seems to focus on Gentiana, Shiva, and Luna. Those who want to play the game can pick up a copy for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
