Square-Enix Is Putting Its Full Support Behind the Nintendo Switch

Expect to see more ports and new franchises from Square-Enix on Nintendo's system.

The Nintendo Switch is selling well, particularly in its home country of Japan. The system is having a hard time staying on shelves, and game publishers are clearly noticing consumers' interest.

Indeed, Square-Enix plans to support the Switch as much as possible through original titles as well as ports. On April 6, Square-Enix COO Yosuke Matsuda talked to Japanese newspaper Nikkei (via Press A 2 Join) about its current games for the Switch, and what's to come.

Square Enix "Committed To Bringing More Dragon Quest Titles" West

"In addition to developing new titles, we also want to port what we can do with existing game titles more and more," Matsuda said.

A port of the classic-style RPG I am Setsuna is already available for the Nintendo Switch, and a new franchise, Octopath Traveller, is currently in the works. In Japan, the Switch also has Dragon Quest Heroes I & II, and an upcoming Seiken Densetsu Collection.

Dragon Quest Heroes I & II hasn't been announced for North America (though Dragon Quest Heroes II is on its way for PlayStation 4 later this month), nor has Seiken Densetsu Collection. Getting the latter over here is hardly an impossibility, though.
