Square Enix president and representative director Yosuke Matsuda has spoken positively about the publisher’s experiences with Nintendo Switch, sharing that their development teams are keen to discover new ways that the console will allow everyone to play games.
“Our developers with a strong interest in the [Nintendo] Switch are eager to challenge themselves to find new ways for people to play games,” Matsuda explained to Nikkei.
“Having more gaming platforms available is a good thing for us. I really want the Switch to succeed. We’ll be developing new titles, and we’d like to port existing titles that the Switch can support often as we can.”
Square Enix has so far supported Nintendo Switch with Dragon Quest Heroes I and II, Dragon Quest X, Dragon Quest XI, I Am Setsuna, Minna de Wai Wai! Spelunker, Project Octopath Traveler, Re:Legend, and Seiken Densetsu Collection, presenting a mixture of games that have already released and that remain in development.
He added: “Nintendo creates a variety of new gameplay possibilities. I think other companies will come up with some surprising gimmicks using the Switch’s unique capabilities. We have our own way of doing things, so we’ll be marrying the Switch’s unique features to the kinds of games we’re known for.”
