The Team Behind Everspace Says That They “Started Looking Into A Switch Port A Few Weeks Ago”

Everspace is a “single-player 3D space shooter with rogue-like elements and non-linear storytelling” that released on multiple platforms last year. Well, the Nintendo Switch is also going to get the game. This is because Rockfish Games CEO and Co-Founder Michael Schade recently confirmed this in an interview with Wccftech. Schade couldn’t give a release date for the Switch version, but that’s largely because the only just started looking into a Switch port “a few weeks ago”. Here’s what Schade said in full:

The game is made with the Unreal Engine 4, which fully supports the Nintendo Switch. Do you think the console’s hardware could run EVERSPACE and if so, are you considering a port?

For a team with its root in mobile gaming, we are super excited about the Switch, naturally. We have always loved the ubiquity of mobile gaming devices in general, and the Switch even comes with proper analog controllers which is very much needed if you want to have a proper console-style experience on the go – as much fun it was to play Galaxy on Fire 1 and 2 on smartphones and tablets, touch controls have never been the best fit for a 6DOF space shooter.

More importantly, Nintendo’s DNA has always been a great “mobile” gaming experience with a premium pricing policy keeping the perceived value of its games at console level and keeping the platform from being cluttered by too many shovelware. The success of the Switch proved Nintendo right, and we have started looking into an Everspace port a few weeks ago. Now, while I cannot share any further details about a release date or pricing, I definitely can share that our mobile gaming background already paid off: Everspace runs super smoothly, and it looks just gorgeous on the device. We still have to optimize the performance when running on the big screen, but we are getting there. So, stay tuned for more!

      2. Dude, it’s a badly remastered game from 1995. It tried so hard to pound on nostalgia but messed up on three accounts: Looking almost exactly the same, no multiplayer and Gamepad is, once again and for the final time before Pii U died, forced so far up every deluded fanboys ass that they happen to grow fond of it’s feeling and pretend to like it as it overstate its welcome.

  1. after one question is “The game is made with the Unreal Engine 4, which fully supports the Nintendo Switch. Do you think the console’s hardware could run EVERSPACE and if so, are you considering a port?” it would’ve been good to have some in-game material to demonstrate what we are talking about.
