Metro recently got to go hands-on with Soulcalibur VI which is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC next year and the publication took the chance to speak with the games’ Producer, Motohiro Okubo. Okubo was asked if we can expect a Switch version but because the game has been in development for over three years, and the team didn’t know know what Nintendo’s next console was going to be back then, a Switch version isn’t currently on the agenda for him. Although the chances of seeing Soulcalibur VI on the Nintendo Switch are looking rather slim, it’s promising to hear that Okubo is, like many people, interested in the system.
GC: Is there any chance of a Switch version, so we can have Link again? [Link was the guest character in the GameCube version of SoulCalibur II – GC]
MO: SoulCalibur VI development started more than three years ago. And nobody knew anything about Switch back then. So, as a matter of fact we are not working on Switch, as of now. But of course, personally, I’m interested in the platform. So if the Unreal Engine can adapt to Switch, and evolve itself, then maybe the possibility will be more.
