Why specify Switch as opposed to just wanting these ports on modern consoles in general?

Also why do people never mention Eidos games these kind of articles?

In Xenogears case it could be because most of the orginal Xeno team now are owned by Nintendo. It would make since for a port, remaster or a remake on the Switch.

it's impossible. apparently all the square games from that era have had their source codes misplaced. FF7 was able to be re-released because they were able to reverse engineer the PC ported version. It's a real shame. That's why there are no FF8, or many of the other popular square titles from that era.

Really? I had no idea. I know they lost the code for FFVIII, but not Xenogears.

It would make sense to port Xenogears to any modern platform

Square and Monolith Soft should team up for a Xenogears remake.

MrCrimson31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

they should, but xenosaga didn't sell well and while the people who played xenogears love it, it is sort of a cult classic, rather than a game that would warrant a AAA budget remake.

Im glad FF7 was FF7 and not that thing called Xenogears, phew history was almost changed in that instance. Im glad Sakaguchi said no to Takahashi's draft of FF7, and instead went with his own, Kitase's, Nomura's and Nojima's ideas.

Xenogears didn't need to be a FF title anyways. Sure, it would of got the sells it deserved under a FF title, but that game did not fit as a FF title. It was something much more. Despite not being completed it's probably Square's best title along side Vagrant Story.
