Square Enix Wants to Bring Old MMO to the PS Vita (Wait, What?)

Never one to shy away from porting a game, Square Enix talked about doing just that in the latest issue of Japanese game mag Famitsu. The choice, this time is rather odd.

According to Square Enix's Hiromichi Tanaka, the Tokyo-based game maker is considering whether or not to bring a straight Final Fantasy XI port to the PS Vita. There are currently no concrete plans.

Tanaka apparently also added that due to the PS3's unique characteristics, it's difficult to port games to Sony's home console.

Final Fantasy XI was originally released in Japan on the PS2 in 2002. A PS Vita port could be interesting, but really Square Enix, another handheld port?

Tanaka is a Final Fantasy vet, who worked on the first title. He was one of the lead designers on FFXI and was the producer for Square Enix's latest MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV until last December. Surely you remember how that turned out.
