Square Enix has set up a new division that is dedicated to developing games for the Nintendo Switch.
In an interview with Game Informer, Square Enix division executive Tomoya Asano confirmed the team was put together in April.
However, how much support the new division will receive from Square Enix will depend on the sales of upcoming RPG Octopath Traveler.
“Square Enix has decided that it wants to focus on original titles for the Switch,” said Asano.
“If Octopath Traveler does well and this is something that appeals to fans, we want to focus on Switch. Please pick up the Switch if you want to play games like Octopath Traveler.”
Final Fantasy Tactics, please
Asano also revealed that several more games for the Nintendo Switch are in the pipeline. They are not, however, ready to be talked about.
“There are several other titles that we're currently working on for Switch,” he said.
“If you could just wait a bit longer, we'll work with Nintendo and announce them in the future.”
Prior to Octopath Traveler, Square Enix has released other nostalgic RPGs on the Switch such as Tokyo RPG House’s I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear.
