The Nintendo Switch games list has plenty of exciting project, which could always do with more third-party support.
While there are plenty of titles to look forward to in 2018, fans will be curious to see what outside franchises will be featured on the Switch.
So far, Bethesda and Ubisoft have provided third-party titles, with Doom and Skyrim some of the best so far.
There are also plenty of indie games available on the console, with a lot more on the way.
And while they maybe a little late to the party, it appears Square Enix will be joining in on the fun very soon.
More details have been provided from the company’s recent earnings report.
And from this latest information, it appears that Square Enix are hoping to bring back some top titles on the Switch
When asked ‘Where do you intend to prioritize allocation of your development resources going forward?’ – they answered: “We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform.
“In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform.”
What that means is anyone’s guess, but it appears that fans can expect to see some reboots or remakes coming their way.
Fans will hoping that this means the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, although Square Enix did seem to suggest that there are limits to their ambitions too.
Q: What do you think of Nintendo Switch, and how are you approaching development efforts for it?
They answered: “Nintendo Switch is seeing rapid uptake, and we welcome the arrival of such a platform.
“We intend to be proactive in our development efforts given that it’s a platform that is well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel.”
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake project is definitely not a ‘mid-sized title’ so it’s unclear if something like that will be launching on the Switch in the future.
There are of course, much smaller projects which could be ported over in a quicker fashion, such as Final Fantasy VI, or perhaps titles from the Kingdom Hearts series.
It follows the news that GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs believes the Nintendo Switch will be in stock for Christmas, while the Japanese games giant has provided their own update concerning Black Friday 2017.
Gibbs told MCV that new stock has been arriving on a week-by-week basis and that based on current demand, there shouldn’t be any problem getting one for Christmas.
“We’ve got enough Switch coming in on a week-by-week basis, Nintendo needs to take some real credit operationally for how they’ve managed to work this through,” he said.
“We’ve now got a constant supply of stock coming into the business on a weekly basis.
“Don’t get me wrong I don’t have [Distribution Centre] stuffed full of 100,000 units, but we do have a good, regular supply from Nintendo.”
As for Christmas stock, he added: “The only reason that we wouldn’t see [stock] is if demand picks up any further but I wouldn’t see that as a bad thing.”
Nintendo themselves have told media outlets that they will not be discounting the Nintendo Switch during the Black Friday sales.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says that the company will instead be focusing on making supply at retail at top priority.
