Amnesia Developer Says He Would Like To Bring The Series To Nintendo Switch

Frictional Games, who are the developers behind the horror series Amnesia, have told GameSpot that they would very much like to to see the series on the Nintendo Switch system. GameSpot spoke to creative director Thomas Grip who told the publication that he’s a big fan of Nintendo and believes being able to play the game in handheld mode would bring a new dimension to the series.

“We’re looking into it. I would love to do Switch content. I grew up with Nintendo being the big platform, so it’s like, ‘Wow, we’re actually doing video games for real now if we can get it on Nintendo!’

“And it would just be cool to get it on a handheld as well, because I think that should work for Amnesia and other games as well. We’re looking into it and seeing what can be done. We’re hoping–if everything goes as we hope–we hope we’ll have it [on Switch].”

    1. Their games actually really had an impact on the industry. In a time when horror games were associated with stuff like Resident Evil and Silent Hill or horror-shooters, especially Penumbra (a similar game they did before) totally redefined the meaning of horror. Ever since games like Alien isolation, which is pretty much like Amnesia with an Alien or Outlast got popular. Frictional was really among the first to revolutionize this genre with this hide-and-seek-kind of horror and did a briliant job.
      I never really made it far as it was just too much for me to handle but there are some really crazy scenes to be found.

    2. Some friends and I practically barricaded ourselves in one of their rooms a few nights in college and watched one of them play through it on a big screen. Some were more scared than others but we had a blast watching and our designated player enjoyed playing.

    1. I can imagine they’d love some help from you, if you think it’s that easy.
      I believe this ain’t about the plain process of porting, but also finding someone to pay for it, to handle the whole stuff with promotion and whatsoever. Plus they might just be working on something totally different.
