Square Enix wasn’t messing around when it decided to bring the Seiken Densetsu series to the Nintendo Switch. There are few names on the emulation scene more respected than M2, and that is who Square Enix has tapped to handle the port.

President Naoki Horii revealed the news through his Twitter account.

Oh, also, it looks like I got the go-ahead, so I’d like to announce that I’m taking charge of Seiken Densetsu on Switch. As I cozily play Zelda in all kinds of scenes, I get a feeling that it’s going to be an enjoyable hardware.

Nobody does it better than M2

Each of M2’s classic ports has been widely praised for its accuracy to the original product and its ability to retool games to create different modes. The best-known games that M2 has worked on are the SEGA 3D Classics games on the Nintendo 3DS, and the company even managed to make Virtual Console look good. Its Game Boy Advance emulator is easily the best of the platform emulators available through the Wii U.

Good snag for Square Enix. Now, the big question is who will they get to finally localize Seiken Densetsu 3.
