Speaking to Game Informer, Square Enix’s President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda was quoted as saying, “We’re working on that in a variety of ways. That is a request that we hear often. As far as our major titles go, most of those, we still have variations out that you can play now. The more classic titles that you might have played on NES, we are still working hard to make it so you can play those.”
He adds, “We actually have launched a dedicated project internally to port those, so we are working to make them available on a variety of platforms. Certainly down the road, we would like to see that on a subscription or streaming service, so we’re exploring the possibility of creating a dedicated channel for ourselves.”
That being said, this is by no means a guarantee that we will see a streaming or subscription service, but those are some of the more popular models at the moment and we wouldn’t be surprised if they were to adopt it. In recent times, we have seen how other companies have launched similar services, such as Apple with its Apple Arcade service, and also Google with its Stadia platform.
