Japanese gaming publication Famitsu recently had the opportunity to sit down and interview NipponIchi Software’s CEO about the upcoming Nintendo Switch platform and the opportunity to develop for it. While the CEO admits that they have grown together with the PlayStation brand he says they simply can’t ignore the Nintendo Switch and its portable nature and said from here on multiplatform development for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch is very much a possibility.
“That’s true. As you’ve said, we are a software company that has grown together with Playstation, and are well aware that a lot of our fans are on Playstation platforms. So it is not as if we will stop developing games for Playstation. Overseas, Playstation 4 sales are incredibly strong and we will continue making games for the Playstation 4 platform.
However, in Japan we can’t just ignore the move to portable gaming consoles. Our games are well suited for portable gaming, so when you think about it, it is important for PS4 and Nintendo Switch to balance each other out and do well. With that in mind, from here on multiplatform develpment for PS4 and Nintendo Switch is very much a possibility.”
