Final Fantasy XV’s Director Wants You To Know He Can’t Find A Switch

Last month, Final Fantasy XV executive Hajime Tabata teased a chronicle of his diversion for a Nintendo Switch. But when we asked him about that pier to Nintendo’s prohibited new console, he wanted me to share a opposite message: He can’t indeed find one.

“I wish we to make a headline, ‘Tabata has not been means to squeeze a Switch,’” he told me in Seattle final weekend, vocalization by a translator.


Tabata had mentioned, before we even started chatting, that someone from Nintendo called him adult after his Switch teases during Gamescom. Although he kept still about what Nintendo indeed said—“I can’t say,” he laughed—Tabata did try to travel behind his comments that he and his group were looking to move Final Fantasy XV to “a console that sounds like Twitch.”

“It was only kind of a fun response,” pronounced Tabata. “That said, we aren’t dismissing a hardware in any way. We trust it’s a good platform, and we’re open to looking for opportunities. And if a event presents itself, and there’s something we can do on that given platform, we’d like to do it.”

Sadly, Tabata hasn’t had a time to wait in one of Japan’s horrible lines to get his hands on a Switch, that he unequivocally wanted Kotaku readers to know. He’s been checking sites like Amazon frequently, though each time he looks, Nintendo’s Switch is sole out. “I’ve already purchased all this software,” he said. “I have Zelda, Mario Kart, and Splatoon. we only haven’t been means to squeeze a hardware.”


But wait a minute, we said. He’d only pronounced that Nintendo gave him a call. Why not ask his contacts over there to offshoot him up?

“Because afterwards I’d owe them, and I’ll have to support Nintendo,” Tabata said, laughing. “I wish to have a neutral standing.”

Tabata fast combined that this was a joke—presumably to equivocate some-more indignant phone calls—but he did unequivocally wish Kotaku readers to know even he can’t get his hands on a Switch. “The title I’m really critical about,” he said. “The fun partial is a fact that we can’t ask it from Nintendo.”

“If we make that a headline,” we said, “maybe someone will feel bad and send we one.”

“I’ll do my best until we can squeeze it,” Tabata said. “Keep on trying.”
