Square Enix has been behind Nintendo Switch from the start, supporting the plucky portable home console with games such as I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear, Spelunker Party!, and Romancing SaGa 2.

With chatter from independent developers as to how well their games have performed on the Nintendo eShop, it’s natural to wonder how games from third-party publishers have been performing, too.

“They haven’t done badly!” Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda explained to EDGE when asked about how the company’s games have fared on Nintendo Switch.

“Obviously it only came out last March, so it hasn’t been long, but of all the publishers who are working on Switch we’ve done quite a few things. It’s a very attractive platform – there are a lot of people within the company that are looking to make games for Switch.”

Their support will continue in 2018 with Dragon Quest Builders, Fear Effect Sedna, Project Octopath Traveler, and The World Ends With You -Final Remix-.

We know that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will see release this year, but await confirmation on when it will actually hit Nintendo Switch. While Square Enix is considering releasing Secret of Mana HD, and looking to port classic games to the console.
