A Plague Tale: Innocence is an ambitious new title from developer Asobo Studio and looks rather promising. Gaming Bolt caught up with Asobo Studio’s Chief Creative Officer David Dedeine to ask whether the game will eventually make its way onto the Nintendo Switch. Dedeine replied by saying that the system simply isn’t powerful enough for the development team to bring it to the platform.
“No. I will not lie by just saying…power,” he said. “It’s really the power of the device. In this case it was the amount of rats we need to display. We already know that there’s too many rats, too many animations, too many AI at the same time. And if we want to give justice to – it’s like there is a large bridge between [it and ] Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. And the Switch, it was too hard to make the same game in such a different context.”
