More details about the MMORPG come to light.

According to The Sixth Axis, producer Naoki Yoshida said Square Enix wants to bring the MMORPG to as many systems as possible. But this doesn't necessarily mean it will come to the Switch.

"The main limitation [is] that they absolutely don't want to create a boxed off version of the game that can't interact with the others. If that could be overcome then they'd be very interested in discussing a Switch port," The Sixth Axis reported.

The Switch launches on March 3. You can see all the launch titles here and every confirmed game here.

As for the PS4 Pro patch, Yoshida said Final Fantasy XIV will make use of the console's extra horsepower to boost performance.

"Rather than using the PS4 Pro's power to adapt to say 4k display, we're thinking of using it for game performance," he explained. "We've begun work on a Pro patch and hope to have details soon."

The PS4 Pro came out in November and a lot of games have been patched to support it.

Final Fantasy XIV's Stormblood expansion launches on June 20 for PS4 and PC--PS3 support is soon coming to an end. In addition to the Samurais and new areas to explore, Stormblood also adds another new class (the Red Mage), raids, dungeons, a residential area, and more.
