In the past couple of days, Square Enix has been vocal about its plans to support Nintendo Switch by bringing a number of its titles to the console, which is a far cry from the distinct lack of a Square Enix presence we saw with Wii U.

Back in January, Square Enix showcased Project Octopath Traveler at the Switch event, and the publisher recently revealed that the Seiken Densetsu Collection will be coming to Switch in Japan. Last month, Dragon Quest Heroes I-II was part of Switch’s Japanese launch. Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda told Nikkei in a recent interview that out of all of the upcoming gaming platforms of 2017, including Microsoft’s Project Scorpio and Windows 10 Game Mode, Square Enix’s attention will be focused mainly on Switch.

Matsuda also stated that the company is considering porting previously-released titles to the console: “We’re even thinking about what feasible existing game titles we want to successively port [onto the Switch].”

Today, Takashi Tokita, who has been with Square Enix since 1985, Tweeted a photo of the Switch with the caption, “Top-secret mission starts!” suggesting that perhaps he is beginning work on a title for Switch. Whether it is a brand new game or one of the aforementioned ports is impossible to know, but it seems like Square Enix is making moves towards delivering on its aim to bring its games to Switch in 2017.

    I think Kingdom Hearts 3 would be right at home on the Switch. I’d be shocked if there wasn’t much of an audience there within the Nintendo fanbase. Since KH3 is still a ways off release, Square Enix might even have enough time to launch the game on both PS4 and Switch simultaneously.

    And why not add a line of Kingdom Hearts Amiibo to up the ante? Since there’s no more Disney Infinity, Amiibo would be a great exclusive to the Switch version. :)
