Nintendo Switch 2: Final Fantasy XIV Could Be On It [VIDEO]

While we wait for Nintendo’s next-generation hardware, we also have to deal with the present, because the Nintendo Switch has to keep people hooked on something.


Final Fantasy XIV Producer Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P) was asked in an interview with Easy Allies if Square Enix’s MMORPG could make an appearance on the Switch’s successor. Yoshi-P says that his dream for more than a decade has been to make his game playable by as many people as possible, regardless of platform. A port would take time. He also said that the Xbox Series version took several years to come to fruition after negotiations with Microsoft began, so it’s likely that Square Enix’s MMO won’t be released in the early years of Switch 2.

As for third-party support, we’ve written before that Nintendo could be in a good position initially, since if something can run on the Xbox Series S, it will surely run on the Switch 2, but since the big N doesn’t follow console generations at the same time as Sony and Microsoft, the Japanese company’s new hardware will once again hit stores in the middle of a console generation, so porting later, next-gen games could be a much more difficult task.

The “non-E3” period is coming to an end, and there’s only one major player left on the block: Nintendo, which hasn’t talked about what it has planned for the next few months. Nintendo has announced that the next Nintendo Direct, which will be about forty minutes long (see the second video below), will be held later today at 10AM ET. The broadcast will not talk about the Switch successor, but will focus on what games the Japanese company will bring to the Switch in the second half of 2024.

It’s about time we finally get to see Metroid Prime 4, as it’s been several years in the making after the developer switch. Perhaps The Legend of Zelda remasters could also make an appearance during the broadcast. We’ll see soon enough.
