Ahead of its release, the director for "Final Fantasy XV," Hajime Tabata, expressed his desire to develop games for the newly announced Nintendo Switch. Tabata has had a long history in the video game industry, so it really is not surprising why the director seems delighted with the new console.

In an interview, Tabata praises Nintendo's console. "I'm very interested in this machine! The Nintendo Switch that you can transform into a controller, that you can put into a dock, that you can move around with, on which you can replace elements," he said. While it is still unclear whether "Final Fantasy XV" will be released on Nintendo's console or not, game forums are already talking about it.

To fuel this speculation, "Final Fantasy XV" director has had worked with Nintendo before. Tabata was the co-director for the company's 3DS game "Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance." In the same interview, he subsequently adds, "It's been a while that I've told myself that I would like to make games on a Nintendo machine, so if the Nintendo Switch could be that opportunity, I'll be delighted!"

While it might not be an impossible idea, it may take a while before "Final Fantasy XV" calls Nintendo Switch one of its homes. Besides, Tabata has obviously always been keen on PC's and consoles.

In other news, the "Omen" trailer for "Final Fantasy XV" is received positively by fans. It can be remembered that "Kingsglaive" received quite a flack - the new trailer, on the other hand, has been rated superb.

"Final Fantasy XV" remains overly mysterious until now, despite releasing a new trailer. To be blunt, it has quite become confusing at this point.

Having said that, it won't be long before fans solve the mystery behind the latest installment. "Final Fantasy XV" will be released worldwide on November 29, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One.
