In addition, on the Subtitle Final Fantasy Tactics, a user claims to have recently received an invitation to a “playtest” survey from Eidos-Montreal, asking if he played FFT and some other tactical RPGs:

“I just got an invitation to the Eidos-Montreal playtest (which also tests Square Enix games in general), and everything seems to indicate that they are testing a tactic. They were asking me if I was playing Fire Emblem, FF Tactics, Ogre Battle , Disgaea, Into the Breach, etc. At first I thought it was about Triangle Strategy, but although they didn’t ask me if I was playing Octopath, they asked if I was playing FF12 and this is the sequel to DS … the only non-tactical FF games that take place in Ivalice. They also asked me if I am playing FF Tactics PS1 AND if I am playing the iOS / Android version which sounded strange, they never ask me about multiple versions of the same game. “

As you may remember, in September there was a huge Nvidia GeForce for PC database leak. Nvidia said at the time that the games featured were “speculative titles”. And yes, a Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster was on the list, alongside a bunch of other Square Enix titles.

Of course, there’s no mention of a Nintendo Switch release here, but Square Enix seems to be carrying most of those classic RPGs on the hybrid system – so if the above list is legit, chances are good. that it is published on Nintendo hardware. .
