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.”
