Final Fantasy XI To Appear On GameCube?

In an article recently appearing in the Los Angeles Times, Hironobu Sakaguchi commented on Final Fantasy XI possibly being released on the GameCube.

"That certainly is a possibility," Sakaguchi said, when asked about GameCube and Xbox versions of the game. "In fact, executives at Square are very enthusiastic about Nintendo. Square is moving into online games. Final Fantasy XI, which will be released next year, will be a fully online game. To make that work, you have to transcend hardware. If we want to do financially well online, we need to exist across all consoles."

While it was confirmed quite awhile ago that Final Fantasy XI was to be released on PS2 and the PC initially, this is the first time other platforms have been mentioned. The only block in the road now is the now-infamous issues between Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi and Squaresoft. Will Yamauchi finally give in and welcome Square back? Only time will tell.
