Final Fantasy XI, an MMORPG already available across three platforms, may come to yet another. Speaking to the latest issue of Famitsu, Final Fantasy XI producer Hiromichi Tanaka said the company is currently investigating a port of the popular online game to PlayStation Vita.

While Tanaka confirmed Vita’s consideration, he said that there are currently no solid plans to port the game.

    I qoute myself^^
    “Use the resources to make new IPs or do some FANSERVICE and bring Chrono Trigger,Secret of Mana, Parasite Eve or Kingdom Hearts back on PSVita or make Remakes of them, but do not waste time on a 8 year old MMOgame..”
    “There are more Games in my Mind like Secret of Evermore, Terranigma, Rudra no hiou, Front Mission…what about them, they should remake them first”

    Squaer-EH NIX lost its touch with their fanbase…

      @Kain81: haha , i agree with you… if they want to bring back old games , just bring the good one…

      @Kain81: What makes you think there aren’t already plans to do something with those other games? It’s not like the entirety of Square Enix would be working on the port for FFXI. Furthermore, porting FFXI once again to the Vita wouldn’t be wasteful. In fact, it’s a pretty good idea. The game may not have the userbase that World of Warcraft does, but it’s still very much alive, and by MMO standards, it’s hardly dated, both graphics-wise and gameplay-wise. A Vita port would certainly do well in Japan at the very least.

      As for Square Enix losing touch with their fanbase… I don’t think they ever really had any connection with their fanbase, but that’s beside the point.

  • I completely agree.

    why don’t they just bring this to ps3 seeing as how ff14 doesn’t look like its coming to the ps3 anyway =/.

      @go-go-boy: I think FF14 PS3 still has a chance. They’ve been updating the crap out of the PC version, and while I have no idea if it’s gotten any good, I think it’ll still come if reception to the improved FF14 is positive enough.

        @go-go-boy: @Sal Romano: i’m hoping they change the gameplay and make it more fast paced… something like mabinogi or dungeons and dragons online.

      • go-go-boy

        @Sal Romano: yea i hope so sal i really want to play it i tried dc universe it was fun for a while but i really wanted ff14 so i hope it comes even though this wouldn’t be bad either.
