A surprising announcement for the Nintendo Switch recently was Hyper Sports R from Konami. The team spoke to Polygon at last week’s E3 event and explained to the site why they decided to make the game specifically for the Nintendo Switch.
“The reason it’s a Switch exclusive is because it’s such powerful technology,” Konami brand and media manager Benjamin Kinney said at E3 2018. “We were at [the Switch’s] launch with [Super Bomberman R], but even then the devs and the teams were looking at what the Switch could do, watching what Nintendo was doing with motion controls and the way Joy-Cons work — there’s potential. For sure, that’s one of the reasons we chose the Switch.”
