In Famitsu interview, the developers revealed interesting tidbits about the first game’s development: When the prototyping started for World of Final Fantasy, they originally planned it for mobile platforms. However, the team decided that it’s wiser to develop the console version first because they weren’t completely sure where to go with the direction. This has made the development of Meli-Melo much easier, allowing them to recycle assets and create new ones on faster phase. Square Enix estimates that World of Final Fantasy has sold over 800 000 copies worldwide. It has motivated them to bring another game for consoles as well.

World of Final Fantasy Melo-Melo is yet to be announced for the West. The console sequel is being planned, however, schedule and platforms are still unknown. Square Enix has recently expressed their interest in bringing more titles for Nintendo Switch, making it a possible platform for the next World of Final Fantasy game. The first game will remain a “console exclusive” for PlayStation 4 and Vita.
