Fans of “Final Fantasy XV” still have a glimmer of hope in seeing the game on Nintendo Switch. The catch, however, is that it may come in a slightly different form.

Speaking to IGN, game director Hajime Tabata said that the “Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition” may have a Switch version. “It’s certainly not zero,” Tabata explained. “Obviously we’d have to think about what the meaning and what the significance of bringing this to Switch would be,” he added.

“You know, whether people would want to play it and whether it would be the right thing to do for our team,” he went on to say. Furthermore, he also mentioned that since the game is meant for mobile play, it does not offer controller support. This means that, if released, it will be a handheld title without the docking capabilities.

In addition, Tabata also floated during Twitch’s Gamescom live show that they are open to bringing the title to Switch. “There’s another certain console out there people may be thinking of. It sounds a little bit like you guys, your name, Twitch. I think we’ll just leave it there,” Tabata teased.

“Everyone on the Final Fantasy XV [team], they love this specific console that sounds a lot like Twitch, so you may want to think maybe about something about that in the future,” he added.

As for the PC version, Tabata confirmed in a Kotaku interview that there was an error regarding a particular requirement. He said that the 170GB free space requirement was a communications mistake on their part. He said that it was something that was placed in a memo that should not have been done in the first place.

Moreover, he also confirmed that there is a “very good chance” that the game’s specs will still be changed. In addition, Square Enix also confirmed that the PC version will feature Nvidia graphics. An example is the Nvidia Hairworks that will make the characters’ hair look better and more detailed than ever.

The PC version’s gameplay will likely be the same as that of the consoles’ but the graphics will be much better.
