What are the chances of CT getting released on the Switch?

This has probably been asked before, but I figured, what the hell.

I'd LOVE to be able to play CT again, preferably the SNES version.

They certainly aren't averse to porting the game, so perhaps we might see it on the Switch at some point. Nintendo keeps adding games to their VC service, so perhaps it's only a matter of time.

It'd be even better if they added CT and CC. They ported Legend of Mana and Final Fantasies 7-9, so why not?

It's possible it might be a Source Code issue. From my understanding, many games source codes were lost during the 90's, in a combination of neglect or just plain happenstance. For FFVII they had to use the original PC version's from now on which is based from an almost but not quite final build of the original PSX one, same for FFVIII it was the original PC version they had to use. CC is supposedly among the ones missing their source code, which may be why they haven't done anything with the game yet.

Huh, that's really interesting. I've always wondered why they hadn't ported Cross to anything else.

Though, given that it's on the PSN, I wonder what technical limitations are preventing them from using that one instead?

The fact that it could be brought to DS and iOS makes me believe it's totally possible. I believe the chances are low, but with even more old games being brought forward (FF pixel remasters) lately, the chances are getting better!

Meanwhile, one of the most accessible options for playing it, though not the best, is the iOS version which was ported again to PC, on Steam. (If you like achievements, there is one for each ending of the game.)

I would LOVE a Cross port, because I have never played it yet.
