Golf Story on Nintendo Switch has proven to be popular with fans and critics alike and the Switch-exclusive even topped the eShops charts when it released. Red Bull Games got to interview the developer and, interestingly, Golf Story was originally meant to be on the Wii U. Sidebar Games also revealed that Nintendo was very helpful in bringing their game to the Switch platform.
“It was just a small game at first, since we wanted to get something out before the Wii U ended, but it kind of got out of hand, with too many ideas,” Newey continues. “We managed to move it over to Switch thanks to Nintendo being interested in it.”
“Being a new and unknown game, we thought we would be left to do most of it on our own, but they were actually very involved and helped us out a lot with releasing it.”
