Last month, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata hinted that a version of his latest game could be appearing on the Nintendo Switch. Now, unfortunately, the director has pulled back, claiming that he was only making a “joke.”

“It was just kind of a joke response,” Tabata said in a recent interview with Kotaku, referring to one of the answers he gave at a Gamescom 2017 panel. At the time, he’d strongly hinted that Final Fantasy XV would be headed to a console that sounds like “Twitch.”

“That said, we aren’t dismissing the hardware in any way,” Tabata continued. “We believe it’s a great platform, and we’re open to looking for opportunities. And if the opportunity presents itself, and there’s something we can do on that given platform, we’d like to do it.”

Tabata also mentioned that Nintendo had called him up after his first hints during Gamescom, though he didn’t reveal what was discussed. It’s unclear whether the call was to scold Tabata for referencing a partnership that didn’t exist, or whether it was a talk to try and make a Final Fantasy XV port a reality—according to Tabata, he’s not allowed to say.

Final Fantasy XV already has several ports and expansions on the way, including a VR fishing game, a PC port, and a mobile Pocket Edition on the way. It’s still possible that we’ll see a Nintendo Switch version in the future, though sad to say, it doesn’t seem to be a project that’s actively in the works.
