Square Enix “considering” Final Fantasy for Wii U

Final Fantasy may come to Wii U. Speaking with Cubed3 at E3, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase said the team is “considering” bringing the series to the newly announced Nintendo platform.

“Three or four years ago we joked around about developing a Final Fantasy game on the Wii Fit balance board,” said Kitase. “But after seeing Wii U revealed at Nintendo’s conference, we are now considering the possibilities of bringing the Final Fantasy series to the format.”

Would the Wii U get its own spinoff series — such as Wii’s Final Fantasy: Crystal Bearers — or a mainline game? Only time will tell.
