The next game from Castlevania: Lords of the Shadow developer MercurySteam, Raiders of the Broken Planet, is not coming to Nintendo Switch. During E3 2017 this week, studio co-owner and game director Enric Alvarez explained that this decision was influenced by how Nintendo’s latest console wasn’t included in MercurySteam’s plans from the beginning of the upcoming shooter’s development cycle.
i also forgot to mention that they are developing Metroid Samus Returns.
We don’t need Castelvania now. We need Metroid. Understood brah?
you really need to stop damage controlling dude. cod ww2 you said who cares and now you talk like this is irrelevant.
who cares :)
the millions of people that buy cod every year.
I care , for me this is another reason to never buy the switch just like I did with the WII U. Been supporting Nintendo since day one but I like to play games. Not just Nintendo games and my little pony third party.
You need to stop trolling dude. I just asked who.
even so they could just go to nintendo and say “hey, you want us to make games for your console? the more 3rd parties/indies the better” and nintendo will answer but it is up to them. i get that nintendo has to go to them for games but its also true in reverse.
Yay, another generic shooter I can pass on my PC.
Metroid is better so who cares?
||Metroid is always better, except that virus one…||
Sorry for my ignorance Commander but what Virus?
Perhaps the Commander is referring to Other M?
Ohhhhhhhh… Yeah… Must have taken His Grace nanoseconds to purge that virus from his system.
An exact quote here would be helpful. What’s implied doesn’t make a ton of sense. They didn’t plan on a Switch port when they started development, so now it simply won’t be coming to Switch? There’s no chance of this changing in the future?
Good thing Castlevania died many years ago, then, so it doesn’t actually matter. Bloodstained is already worth approximately 50 times more than any official new “Castlevania”.
Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the heat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Another one bites the dust
I think everyone is missing the bigger issue: why should anyone care about a god damn shooter Castlevania game? Did Capcom learn nothing from the backlash Resident Evil 6, and RE5 to an extent, got for being too much 1st person shooter?
Ah crap! I forgot the article was about a new IP from a Castlevania developer, not Castlevania itself! (Our power kept popping up so I had to let the computer sit for a couple of minutes.)
D’OH! *mega facepalm*
