Final Fantasy 14 Director Aspires to Global Accessibility Across All Gaming Platforms, Including Future Nintendo Console

The director of Final Fantasy 14 Online, Naoki Yoshida, expressed his desire for everyone to have access to the popular MMORPG, aiming for compatibility across all devices, including the anticipated Nintendo Switch 2.

According to GamesRadar, Yoshida discussed this ambition in an interview with YouTube channel Easy Allies during the Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail media tour preview. When asked about a potential release on a future Nintendo console, Yoshida provided a comprehensive response.

Yoshida mentioned that his long-term dream for over a decade has been to make Final Fantasy 14 playable on any device. As an instance, he referenced the game's recent launch on Xbox Series X|S, although he noted that this transition took an extended period.

He also expressed the team's enthusiasm for bringing the game to the Nintendo platform, acknowledging the substantial effort involved, as evidenced by the lengthy process with Xbox.

Yoshida remains hopeful about the possibility of Final Fantasy 14 becoming available on the next Nintendo console. He emphasized their commitment to working diligently towards this goal.

There is significant allure in experiencing Final Fantasy 14 on a portable device away from traditional gaming setups. While it is somewhat possible to play the game on the Steam Deck, it's essential to emphasize that Final Fantasy 14 requires significant resources on account of the substantial number of players online simultaneously, as well as the need for a consistent internet connection.

Consequently, the successor to the Nintendo Switch would need a substantial upgrade in technical specifications. While expectations for the new console are high, its ability to handle the large-scale MMORPG remains uncertain.
