Competitive gaming website PVPLive has reported that sources “intimate with eSports team management” have mentioned that Nintendo will be investing more into eSports on the Switch.
“I know Splatoon was a test run for a competitive game, so they’re either gonna flesh the current game out, or do something for the Switch,” a source claimed. “From what it sounds like, they aren’t looking to make a LoL, CS, or Overwatch,” “They don’t want to be a front runner; they just want to be a part of it.”
The website also advises that organisations identified with eSports have been in touch with Nintendo, and noted that Super Smash Bros and Pokken were named as games being looked into for the future.
As with all rumours, they need to be taken with a pinch of salt until anything official is released. Hopefully we will know more once further details on the Switch arrive in January.
