Square Enix are looking into the Wii U

A numbered Final Fantasy title hasn’t been on a Nintendo console since Final Fantasy VI. These days they grace Sony and Microsoft platforms, but it could be that Final Fantasy is finally coming home.

According to Now Gamer, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase admits that they have been looking into the Wii U as a possible platform to bring the Final Fantasy franchise to.

“Three or four years ago we joked around about developing a Final Fantasy game on the Wii Fit balance board,” Kitase told NowGamer at E3. “But after seeing Wii U revealed at Nintendo’s conference, we are now considering the possibilities of bringing the Final Fantasy series to the format.”

Final Fantasy 15 to be a Wii U exclusive? Probably not but it’s nice to see that Square are taking the Wii U seriously.

On a related note, it’s worth noting that Square Enix is planning to set up a ‘next-generation’ studio for the eight generation of home consoles.

    I really hope SE take the wii u seriously. I would love for some of SE major games to come back to a nintendo system.

      Same here. But the way FF is going these days, I’m not so sure. Maybe their return to Nintendo would also bring about a return to them making great games.

      Well i am a fan of FF XIII so i am not be mad about that title but some of their other games i can’t say. I heard about FF 14 and i think they really need to fix the problems with the game before it comes to the ps3.

      FF 14 was a… disaster. Why they released such an unfinished game is beyond me :/

    They should make a Final Fantasy in the vein of final fantasy VI, VII, VIII or IX.

    especially VI and IX…
