Is Final Fantasy XI Coming To The PSVita?

Could Final Fantasy XI be heading to Sony’s new handheld?

In the latest issue of Famitsu, Producer Hiromichi Tanaka says that Square Enix is currently investigating a straight port of the game to the next generation portable. He adds that currently there is no solid plan at the moment.

With the device having wi-fi and 3G capable models, Final Fantasy XI on the device would definitely be an interesting addition to the Vita’s library. Could a port of this 9 year old game to the new platform help bring in new players? Or would it serve as a way for the more dedicated players to get their fix when not in front of their home console or PC?
