Forums - Gaming Discussion - FF VII has a decent chance to come to the Switch (opinion)

Square Enix will likely want to make money off Final Fantasy 7 Remake; selling the game on Switch is a good way of reaching profitability.

Making the game turn based on the Switch will probably allow them to put the full game on the Switch at close to PS4 quality.
With a turn based game, the developers can control: the camera, character movement and pacing with ease.
This should allow the developers to optimise the game enough to be run on the Switch.

Remember:
Square Enix put Final Fantasy 15 on mobile.
Final Fantasy VII (original) was turn based.
Square Enix has a decent portion of their fan-base who want more turn based titles.
Bringing Final Fantasy VII to a Nintendo platform is a huge PR win.
Square Enix can, hopefully, consolidate the marketing and development of the two versions.
The Switch has massive traction in Japan.

Even if Square Enix has an exclusive deal with Sony: a FF VII Switch, using assets from the Remake should hopefully be possible.
I think there is too much going in favour of a Switch version; Square Enix, almost, cannot refuse.


Also, exclusivity sucks:
It is like an insurance company granting you a new hand: on the condition that you only use it to work in their office.
You can't even take that hand, and use it for your own things: outside of work.
Grr.

They'll probably tease an exciting FF7 announcement for Switch, and then announce a FF7 port for Switch. Lol



Not really.

There is a chance they could release final fantasy remaster.

The chance for the remake is 0%. The remake is not turn based.

I am not saying it will be the same thing as the PS4 remake.
Square Enix can remake VII for the Switch and have it be turn based.




They said Ff7 remake will be more demanding than ff15 so i cant see how the game can be ported to the switch but i wouldnt mind playing the original on the switch.



Pretty misleading title.



Maybe one day, but by that point it wouldn't matter to me, as I would have played it elsewhere.

I really could not think of a much better one.

If you have a better title.
I am open to suggestions.
