Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda recently did an interview with Nikkei and shared some interesting details about the company’s plans, especially when it comes to the Nintendo Switch

He noted that releasing titles in Japan, only to then wait several months to release the titles in the rest of the world is not a good business strategy, especially for their story/adventure focused titles. As such he pressed on the importance of worldwide releases pf the games. Healso  talked about extending the life of titles through updates and DLC allowing them to continue selling for longer periods of time, such as FFXV, and then noted more announcements will come for FF’s 30th anniversary.

What was of extreme interest is that he stated that of the platforms launching in  2017, namely the Nintendo Switch, Xbox Scorpio, Windows 10 game mode and Google’s Tango, Square Enix is focusing most on Nintendo Switch. Matsuda said that having more platforms is good for developers and creators and this he wants Switch to be successful. He noted that he wants more titles in development for Switch and would like existing ones to be ported to Switch if feasible. He hopes Square Enix will be a top developer for the platform.
