NIS America Says Nintendo Is Very Supportive And Are Looking To Bring More Games To Nintendo Switch

UK trade publication MCV recently interviewed NIS America president Takuro Yamashita in this month’s edition of the magazine. Yamashita explained just how supportive Nintendo has been as a platform holder compared to the competition and says that the company plans to bring more of their titles to the Nintendo Switch.

“We’re starting to do more on Nintendo Switch. SNK Heroines is not the only one. They support us in a good way. Compared to that, Sony is not friendly with small publishers like us. They just care about big Japanese companies. Also, if we simultaneously release a Switch version and a PS4 version of the same title, currently the sales trend is two to one. That means the Switch version sells twice as much as the PS4 version. Physically and digitally. A lot of PS4 titles are coming up, so the market is very competitive. Compared to that, the Switch market still has lots of room for publishers to make money.”

  1. Really? I’ve seen TONS of themes for their games on PS4. There is even a section for Indies on the PS Store’s website. Journey was so obviously an indie title (a pretty great one that I quite enjoyed actually so I don’t always rule out the possibility of finding a good Indie game for me to play & even enjoy; also got The Fall & it’s sequel Unbound) & Sony published Journey. I’ve even seen some Indie games on front pages on the PS4’s version of the store. So I don’t see what NIS America means by that “Sony only cares about big Japanese publishers.” Maybe they mean SIE in Japan?
