VOEZ Will Be The First Nintendo Switch Game To Be Portable-mode Only

You may remember that rhythm based title VOEZ was confirmed for the Nintendo Switch in last week’s edition of Famitsu. The music title is available on mobile platforms but many wondered how the game would make the transition to the big screen. Well, it turns out it won’t, as it will be the first Nintendo Switch game that will only be playable in portable-mode only. The game is reliant on the touchscreen so it makes sense, but it makes you wonder what kind of precedent this sets for future Nintendo Switch titles.

  1. Well that’s interesting. Wt I would like to see is a bunch of apps come out for switch like the Vita has with minis. Personally I don’t play cheap games like that but I know a bunch of people are real suckers for that stuff and it would help switch support out imo. And they also need to get all the video streaming apps on there as well which I have no doubt are going to pop up soon after launch

    1. Why would they block tv mode for a Pok√©mon game? That doesn’t make sense at all, here they do it because gameplay can’t work outside of a touchscreen, pok√©mon games work absolutely fine outside of one. (And we know Pok√©mon IS getting to the Switch, as it’s director has mentioned it twice already)

      1. But if the Switch was not portable, they wouldn’t be interested in putting it on there, would they? The portability is likely the only reason why we’ll see a game on it. It’s not about the touchscreen being required, but how they view the gameplay. Every time they get asked about Pokemon on console, they use the excuse that it’s somehow better suited as a game on the go as a reason not to. That’s why I was thinking they wouldn’t bother with the TV. Honestly, I hope I’m wrong. Because I want it on the TV. It would be amazing.

    1. This game is portable only because it needs the touch screen. There have been many Pok√©mon that don’t require it.

  2. I hope Pok√©mon Stars isn’t that way (that would kill the hype if it’s portable only game.

  3. I must say, this is great! Because it means that Nintendo doesn’t dictate that games have to work in both modes. This opens up new possibilities for developers!

    I hope this is just a rare occurrence. Otherwise, the hybrid aspect could very well be in jeopardy.
