It's probably FF16 he was referring to?


Square Enix talks unannounced titles, Switch during latest financial results briefing

"Sharp," "powerful," and "well-made" titles being prepared for E3 2018.

Square Enix shared new information about unannounced titles and its thoughts on Switch during its latest financial results briefing.

The company plans to launch currently unannounced smartphone titles in the second half of the fiscal year. And next fiscal year it plans to launch big overseas titles, which are being prepared for E3 2018 and are described as “sharp,” “powerful,” and “well-made.”

Square Enix describes the core architectures of PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch as similar, and says multiplatform development is possibly by building a basic version of a game, then optimizing it for each platform.

The company reports being told by overseas retailers and publishers that Switch is selling extremely well, and recognizes that momentum. It says that Nintendo doing well is great for them, and notes that Switch is in a unique position compared to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Switch is described as an opportunity to create middle-range games, and while it is very likely that creating these games would result in them being multi-platform, their expectations for Switch are high and they will aggressively pursue development. Square Enix said that it will not rule out any IPs—new, existing, or revivals—when it comes to Switch.

Finally, here’s a sales number update:

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age – More than three million
NieR: Automata – More than two million
Final Fantasy XV – Nearing 6.6 million

There hasn't been any numbered FF game on a nintendo console in a long time (except for FFXII sequel but I don't really know what the hell make of that game) so I think it's going to be a another subseries or sequel of the existing ones.

A 3rd entry for Bravely Deafult would be perfect.

I'd take take another FF: Crystal Chronicles or a Bravely Default on the Switch.

Some sort of Dragon Quest spin-off is also very likely.

some of Taito's old IP's like Darius, Bubble Bobble, Bust-a-move would fit nicely on the Switch aswell.

I'm very happy with them creating mid-tier games for the Switch. Project Octopath looks amazing, now give me FF Tactics.

Btw i'm amazed at the fact that the bot actually posted something useful.

They're learning.

Maybe it's time for a new Valkyrie Profile on Switch, since Sega's making a new Valkyria Chronicles anyway.
