Not all major titles will arrive on the Switch
Recently, Nintendo’s new president Shuntaro Furukawa sat down with investors during a financial report. In fact, the investors questioned why some major titles weren’t on the Nintendo Switch. Apparently, Furukawa commented that some games might not arrive on the console.
“We believe that giving consumers a wide selection of software is an extremely important part of operating our platforms,” Furukawa said. “That is why we welcome the introduction of a variety of titles from many different software publishers. Even so, I do not think it is realistic to expect that every major title will become available on Nintendo Switch.”
What would fit
“We are speaking with publishers about them actively putting titles on Nintendo Switch that would be an especially good fit for its unique features as a home console system you can carry around, including handheld mode and the ability to bring systems together for local multiplayer. Given the strong publisher support Nintendo Switch has, I would expect the number of titles on it will increase a lot more. That is what really keeps the Nintendo Switch business on the right track.”
Regardless, games have found ways around the limits of the Switch. For example, Resident Evil VII was ported to the console through a streaming service. Not to mention, Bethesda has been able to port over Doom and Wolfenstein onto the system. Of course, along with Doom Eternal coming soon to the Switch.
Yet, it shouldn’t be a bad thing that some games don’t appear on the console. Honestly, would you want to play a reduced version of Red Dead Redemption 2? Regardless, if it can’t be done so be it.
