Just lately, we had a mini-rant over the way in which publishers eek out platform bulletins and we particularly highlighted the truth that Sq. Enix has introduced Closing Fantasy Pixel Remaster for Steam and cell platforms solely. Now, it appears inconceivable that this assortment of basic RPG remasters (all of which debuted on Nintendo consoles, bear in mind) would not come to console platforms, however as but there have been no bulletins.
In a lately revealed Q&A taking a look at varied sport particulars on Sq. Enix’s web site (as identified by Nibellion on Twitter), the writer has addressed its selection of platforms and stated that console variations would depend upon demand or “requests”.
Here is how the ever-reliable, not-at-all-wonky Google Translate interprets the second query within the Q&A:
Why did you select Steam® and your smartphone?
At present, Steam® smartphones are being distributed from “I” to “VI”, however there are works which were available on the market for greater than 10 years, and upkeep is troublesome. The evolution of smartphones is wonderful. So, to begin with, I wished to remaster with the identical smartphone and Steam® so that everybody on this planet might play for a very long time. If there are various requests, I’ll do my greatest in order that I can play in additional varied environments! assist me!
Whether or not you are a FF fan or on the lookout for a handy option to check out the primary half-dozen entries in a basic RPG collection, this ‘wait-and-see’ method is irritating to say the least. It is simpler to know when small publishers and indie builders are pressured to recoup growth prices on a single platform earlier than branching out elsewhere, however Squeenix is hardly a mother ‘n’ pop store, is it?
